Lies via Fox

Monday, November 10th, 2003

Political anagrams of "axis of evil":

  • Lies via Fox
  • A xvi of lies
  • Fix oil aves
  • Fox is a veil
  • Fox is alive
  • xvi is of ale
  • xvi? oil safe!
  • Save oil fix

Nonpolitical anagrams:

  • Fax is olive
  • Foil via sex
  • Flies via ox

I found these anagrams by feeding "axis of evil" and various subsets (such as "axis of evil" - "oil", or "axs f evi") to Andy's Anagram Solver.

The British government has learned…

Friday, August 8th, 2003

Bush: "The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa." (State of the Union address)

Rice: "The statement that he made was indeed accurate. The British government did say that."

Rumsfeld: "It turns out that it's technically correct what the president said, that the U.K. does -- did say that -- and still says that."

"Randy": "I never said your wife's a whore. What I said was: Jim found out your wife's a whore." (a comment on dKos via causality)
