Happy Monday.

White House Chief of Staff Jack Lew repeatedly claimed yesterday that Senate Dems should be excused from not passing a budget in over 1,017 days because "[y]ou canít pass a budget in the Senate of the United States without 60 votes." Not even WaPo's FactChecker could stomach that: "a budget resolution is one of the few things that are not subject to a filibuster. . . . You donít even need 50 votes, just a simple majority." Four Pinocchios.

I feel like we see some variation of "[global warming-related phenomenon] is less than expected" once a week. This week it's Himalayan snow, which was supposed to be disappearing at a rate of 50bn tonnes of meltwater each year. Not so, say scientists who, y'know, actually measured it.

Tabloid war-porn: the Brits seem awful pleased to be flown on a V-22 Osprey, courtesy of the U.S. Marines.

Car bombs in Georgia (the country) and India targeted Israeli embassies today. The bomb in Georgia was disarmed in time; the bomb in India injured at least one person.
