Spam Names.

Another nice bunch:
Maladjustment G. Befouling
Schmaltzy B. Jansen
Confrontational B. Bullring
Theocritus Q. Tawdriness
Underestimating C. Valentino
Mongoloid R. Adventuresses
Detergents O. Manhattan
Turgidity K. Refinishes

They just go on and on. People even have Spam Name Generators but they aren't as good as the ones found in the wild.

Sphincter says what?

"We do need to do a better job," said Lindsay Graham, R-S.C., who appeared with Biden on CBS' "Face the Nation." "We are having progress in Iraq. Zarqawi's death is a sea change. If we're going to go on these shows every Sunday and talk about every mistake ever made in a war, we're going to lose this war."

Out of this I get a couple things: 1. Lindsay Graham cares not a whit for any sort of factual accuracy, or what gramps called "telling the truth." 2. If you can lose a war on the Sunday Talk Shows, maybe you can win a war on the Sunday Talk Shows. Start training the troops now!

Meanwhile, this State Department cable paints a really gruesome and frightening picture of the reality of life in Baghdad.

Americans are so scandal and disaster fatigued that they seem willing to let shit like this just slide. Oh well.
