    I, one person, could spell out RESIST on the beach with a piece of driftwood or a clam shell which ever I found first. Duh, CNN.

    Post-Post Postscript

    (Written after the surprise election of 2016; the chapter above was written several months prior to the event). The election of Trump was so absurd to them and didn’t fit their worldview by such a large margin that they failed to find instructions in their textbook on how to react. It was exactly as on Candid Camera, imagine the characteristic look on someone’s face after they pull a trick on him, and the person is at a loss about how to react.

    Or, more interestingly, imagine the looks and reaction of someone who thought he was happily married making an unscheduled return home and hears his wife squealing in bed with a (huge) doorman.

    Pretty much everything forecasters, subforecasters, superforecasters, political “scientists”, psychologists, intellectuals, campaigners, “consultants”, big data scientists, everything they know was instantly shown to be a hoax. So my mischievous dream of putting a rat inside someone’s shirt (as expressed in The Black Swan) suddenly came true.

    Oh dear, and as a commenter mentioned, thank goodness it wasn’t a real news organization ….

    I love Lou Dobbs.

  10. I turned on my television and put it on Fox so I could watch the SCOTUS announcement and turned it off because of the insipid chatter. I’ll turn it back on at 5pm.

  11. Prediction:

    Trump will come out and make a short statement about Democrats delaying his Cabinet picks. Then he’ll make the announcement. Don’t be surprised if he does/says something unexpected.

    The only upside I can think of this is that fewer of these jackasses will be able to afford their giant vehicle penis pick-em-up trucks tailgating me with their lights in my mirror. If you own a pick-up truck and it doesn’t have farm use on it or a shitload of dents or something hitched to it, you’re just an asshole. There’s a lot of assholes out there. Soon to be driving Kia’s.

    A justice nominee in the mold of Scalia — check off another campaign promised kept by Trump.

    Who is it?

    Well I wonder if he is ‘mainstream’ enough for Schumer ?
    Let the games begin.

  18. Somebody says:

    OT observation, how many purple ties does Brett Baier have? He’s been wearing nothing but purple for weeks is he trying to send a message?
