Where The Heck Am I? Mid-Day Open Thread

I got nothin'. Well I usually got nothin'. Today I also got nothin' to write.

The Wall Street Journal, however, is just now reporting that the NSA's capabilities are far greater than has been claimed since the beginning of the Snowden Imbroglio and now admits it has the "capability" to monitor 75% of all internet traffic at any time.

Okay that's not funny but this is. Remember David Paterson, the half-blind accidental governor of NY who turned out to be kneedeep in affairs?

He's still got the silver tongue.

David A. Paterson was, abnormally, at a loss for words.

The question was why voters should choose Scott M. Stringer, whom Mr. Paterson has endorsed in the Democratic primary for city comptroller and with whom he was campaigning on Monday morning in Harlem, over Eliot Spitzer, under whom Mr. Paterson served as lieutenant governor.

After a pause, Mr. Paterson replied, “Because I endorsed him.”

Asked again a minute later, he did not do any better.

“I’m not going to answer the question of why they should choose Scott over Eliot,” he said. “That’s your question. I didn’t ask that question, and I’m not answering it.”

This is not at all funny: The judge seems to have ignored the clear meaning of the law in order to rule in favor of Michael Mann in his sham defamation suit against Mark Steyn, NRO, and CEI, at least as regards the defendants' motion to dismiss the suit on grounds it's a SLAPP suit intended to squelch vital criticism.

And so for something funny, here's Baby Monkey Feeding Time.
