The Mysterious Case of the CBS Memos

Though it sounds very Nancy Drew-ish, it may merely be devilish, according to Maureen Dowd in the Times. Thank goodness MoDo is around to give voice to some frickin' nebulous "Democrats" who are running skeered over the wonderously evil (and secretly appealing) strategies of the Mayberry Machiavellis. Um, like, what-ev.

Note to pundits: I AM READY FOR MY CLOSE UP! Yoohooo! Over here, willing subject for your endless anonymous (and endlessly extrapolating) polling. I'm just dying to speak for all Dems, why won't anyone let me?

Anyhoo, I've been too tired (read: jaded) to muck through the vast right-wing conspiracy's keening shrillality on the subject of the FORGED (!!) -- THEY'RE FORGED, I SAY!! -- documents, so color me heartened that the fine folks at Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting have taken to the task with gusto, bless 'em. Close observers will note that FAIR directs us, among other places, to the very fine Julius Blog. Well done, Julius Blog!

So read this to get the dope on superscripts, X-heights, and when frickin' Times New Roman was invented.

Oh, there'll be more. The VRWC hasn't even begun to get shrill.
