You're right. The truth trumps satire.

New Emails in Clinton Case Came From Anthony Weiner’s Electronic Devices

AMDG

I saw that headline a little while ago and truly could not decide whether it was a joke or not. Truly.

Yeah.

Absolutely! I kept looking at the NYT banner and thinking it must be prank website, like Now York Times.

AMDG

Apparently the New York Post is turning out a doozie of a front page on this one tomorrow.

Apologies for bringing down the level of conversation around here.

Marvelous headline, but I could do without the picture.

Even the more straightforward "Anthony Weiner's Electronic Device" starts sounding dirty.

Aside from the weirdness of the whole thing, there was this sentence from the NYT article. "...the F.B.I. seized electronic devices belonging to Huma Abedin, a top aide to Mrs. Clinton, and her husband, Anthony Weiner."

You can write a sentence like that and get paid by the NYT? It took me a while to figure out what it was supposed to say.

AMDG

I think I understood it on first reading as it was intended. But if so it's a shame that it doesn't mean the FBI seized Anthony Weiner.

I sounds like Weiner is HC's husband.

AMDG

It can also be read as "seized electronic devices and Anthony Weiner."

But yeah, if you didn't know the people, that's how you would read it (HRC's husband).

Oh, you're right. It is a shame, and yet it conjures up just one more awful image.

The NYP is at it again:

My Manhattanite sister thinks she's lives in a cultured city and Mac and I live in a land of dumb people. I don't see the Mobile Press Register running a headline like that anytime soon.

Even if your sister's view is correct, it just shows you can be smart and still be trashy.

And vice versa.

AMDG

Yep
