The Oracle Pooped

Yes, the Oracles pooped in FL a couple of days ago, which means there's been time for the pundits (and pollsters?) to do the usual post mortem to explain how they missed Gillum. It appears to be along the same line as 2016/Trump: ineffective stratification. Long time reader knows that one of the mantra of this quant is 'stratification is critical and it is haaahhd'. Getting to the moon was easier.

Given the typical size of such samples, ~1000, accuracy depends of either of two…

Stop Pickin On Me

[apologies to Warren Zevon]

I went home with a waitress the way I always do

How was I to know she was with the russians, too?

I was gambling in havana, I took a little risk

Send lawyers, guns, and money

Dad, get me out of this, hiyah!

An innocent bystander

Somehow I got stuck between a rock and a hard place

And I'm down on my luck

Yes, I'm down on my luck

Well, I'm down on my luck

I'm hiding in [Mar-a-Lago], I'm a…

Yes Ore No - part the second

The Manchurian President wants credit. Recall the first entry in what is now a series: the USofA has little iron ore and virtually no bauxite (in global resource terms).

IF YOU DON'T HAVE STEEL, YOU DON'T HAVE A COUNTRY!

Blues for Donald in D# Major

The most important news out of Tuesday, not widely discussed that I've seen, is that right-to-work got drowned by a blue tsunami in Missouri, the 'Show Me State'. It seems that lots o folks there have figured out that The Manchurian President has been lying all the time. As Rachel Maddow tells us, "watch what they do, not what they say".
