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.

Virus in the ANC, but…..

President Thabo Mbeki yesterday stated in his speech before the Polokwane conference that there was a virus in the ANC that was destroying it.

In response to this unfortunate turn of phrase, my friend Justin commented that this begged two crucial questions:

1. Does this virus cause a syndrome?
2. Does showering help prevent its transmission.
