Quote of the week

We’ve got a president who makes things up, and won’t retract when he’s cornered. This week press secretary Sean Spicer followed the leader. He picked up Trump’s wiretap story and added a new exciting detail: Not only had Barack Obama bugged Trump Tower, he might have used British intelligence spies to do the dirty work. The British, of course, went nuts, and national security adviser H. R. McMaster tried to smooth things over. McMaster is new to the job, having succeeded Mike Flynn, who had to resign for lying about his phone conversations. Flynn was not even around long enough for us to find out that he was also a lobbyist for Turkish interests and took $68,000 from various Russian connections.

Snuki = 1. SABC independence = 0

John Perlman has resigned from the SABC. The SABC says it “regrets” his resignation. No news of Snuki Zikalala being fired or pushed out. It’s a sad day. I will probably vote with my ears and stop listening to the After Eight Debate. Pity the other options at that time of the morning are dismal.
