Welcome to the WatchDogWag Project.
It’s a revival of something we did in the earlier days of the internet and we’ve brought it back to share with the entire planet. The WatchDog is to work to keep ‘em honest, and the Wag is because some of their bullshit is so over-the-top ridiculous, you just have to belly-laugh at their audacity and wish them well in prison!
Beside our weekly musings, we publish the money movements of who is getting money from whom, so that voters and partisans may have a better idea who has bought and paid for our elected officials, and why!
We want to be an independent voice missing in local cyberspace today. We’re not really a blog, because there will be no instant commentary from readers, but we continue the very popular Mailbag; we read it all. We have continued the larger font and bold the good stuff for easier reading because you’ve said you really like those features.
Too many once good local sites have cluttered themselves and we’ve lost some really good writers under way too much commentary and too many ads. The idea is not just to lambaste, but to guide and inform, and maybe have a laugh or two. Just because some elected or person in power does something stupid, doesn’t always mean they’re not redeemable, unless of course, they’re doing something stupid all the time. Frankly, the rich source material here is the primary reason for the revival of WatchDogWag.
What we zero-in on are the phonies, the poseurs, the profit-takers, and the pimps–in inexhaustible supply in both parties–and we take no prisoners either!
