Every. Single. Word

Rebecca Traister nails it. There are too many money quotes to quote, but the punchline is especially perfect -- that Trump's campaign is to "make America hate again."

The hits... - updated

... just... keep... on... comin'. And comin'. And comin'.

Update: Nate Silver's polls-only odds have gone up, like, a point an hour today (Oct. 3)! On July 30, their chances were separated by two-tenths of a percentage point. Today, Hillary's chances of winning are 71.8% to Trump's 28.2%... with the second debate still to come, and Trump is full meltdown mode. Nice.

Update 2: Keeps on keepin' on. 76.2 on Oct. 5. And the prospects are delicious.

Update 3: Another day, another bump -- and the promise of more. Now 78.4 on Oct. 6.

Update 4: 79.3 on Oct. 7. Can't wait for the debate to harden this trajectory.

Update 5: Cracks 80 -- and this is before the grope video and Sunday's debate are factored in. Is this the start of a landslide?

Update 6: Could well be.

Update 7: On Oct. 11, it's now 84%.

Update 8: Maybe this is wishful thinking... but when you wish upon a star -- including those who can grab pussy anytime they want -- sometimes your dreams come true.

And yes, by the way, who the hell grabs pussy?

Update 9: Thursday morning, Oct. 13 -- 86.8%, with a bullet.

However, this.

Update 10: Also, I'm confused. A poll comes in showing Hillary up by 10 in Oregon... and the 538 average drops by a percent? The mysteries of algorithms...

Update 11: It keeps not being the blowout one wishes, but with every passing day, it also becomes clearer this is in the bag. Oct. 19: 87.4%. And the Senate is now shaping up very nicely. If this holds, she'll have a real majority there.

Says what needs to be said

This is spot on.

Please be true - updated

Nate rates.

Update: The resurge continues.


This analysis is amazingly sophomoric. Remember these names: Michael Barbaro and Matt Flegenheimer.

The fall of our discontent - updated

I feel obligated to record here how close to despair I feel right now. It is incomprehensible to me that this monster may actually get power. It's beyond belief. I don't know what country I'm living in. God willing, by November this dread will be gone, and Trump will be history.

Update: Today's fear and loathing index.

Update 2: The descent into the heart of darkness continues. The horror, the horror.

Update 3: Beyond words. It's down to 51.8%.

Update 4: Has the worm turned? Please please.
