Quote of the week

“Ivanka [Trump] is no Princess Margaret and Jared [Kuschner] is not the Duke of Windsor regaling guests with amusing bon mots to a captive audience. No one wants to hear about Sarah Huckabee’s pies or Steven Bannon’s shirts.” A snob like that actually deserves a dynamic duo like them (and may shed light on how President Trump found the traction in the heartland that he did). Javanka can’t protest that they moderated the president, not after his past immoderate weeks of raging against democracy and conniving to subvert it. They can’t retroactively claim some profound but strangled ambivalence about his reign, not after her fangirl phantasmagoria at the Republican convention. No, they have made their bed. Lucky for them, the sheets have a serious thread count.

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.
