return of the dada spammers

The plural there may be unjustly applied, but this morning brings me:

ir garlic lawgiver
MOQJ, of the jewellers

and, just in case I'm really stupid:

Cithra, start smoking today!

Pretty dull compared to some of the past, though.

[political ] like fries with that?

Mmm, words - tasty. When is an imminent threat not an imminent threat?
Just this week, White House spokesman Scott McClellan lashed out at critics saying "Some in the media have chosen to use the word 'imminent'. Those were not words we used." But a closer look at the record shows that McClellan himself and others did use the phrase "imminent threat"[...]

It's not just McClellan who should be dining here. Rumsfeld was looking for a round room on Face the Nation (pdf transcript here) yesterday as Bob Schieffer and Thomas Friedman backed him into a corner using the dastardly method of actual previous quotes! Collapse )
Is calling someone a liar still slander/libel if it's true?

I sound more cranky than I am

I realize that I probably sound very peevish, especially about the political stuff. As an antidote, I need to say that on the whole I'm doing quite well, mood-wise. It's a sign of mental equilibrium that I am getting upset about externals, rather than local personal stuff, I think.

I had a fine weekend, for example - breakfast, glasses, party, knitting, games - about which I'll try to remember to say more later. Plus, it's the Ides of March! Happy Birthday to rjl20 and Happy Anniversary to cjot & uly! Many happy returns in all cases.
