Nate Silver now saying if the election was today, Trump would win.  And he's the least doom-y of anyone right now.

I told you so.

Post-convention bump right now, polls mean nothing until the DNC's finished.

DNC is devouring itself.  DNC is sinking into the swamp.  It's all over.  Abandon ship.

So, more than Mario Batali or Alain Ducasse, but less than Gordon Ramsay, Rachael Ray, Wolfgang Puck, and Paula Deen.

Sorry, didn't know what else to compare him to except TV chefs, I am kind of out of the reality-tv loop.

Fair enough comparison. It turns out I really have no idea how much money is floating around TV. At least it's not likely to survive in this fashion in another 10-15 years.

The Bernie Bros are booing Michelle Obama.

They can kiss my entire ass until it blisters up.

And warren.  And they shouted "Black Lives Matter" over Booker while he was trying to speak.

Oddly enough, he is Black and they are almost without exception white.

At this point, I'm thinking about writing in Ralph Nader in the hopes that that somehow will magically cause G.W. Bush to be president again.

Because, hey, when you're falling off a cliff, WHY NOT flap your arms? Maybe you WILL fly!

Also, suspect this is the first article in question:
https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/donald-trumps-most-enduring--and-unbefitting--trait/2016/07/15/f5684848-488b-11e6-acbc-4d4870a079da_story.html

Quote
Plenty of financial and real estate players got carried away in the go-go 1980s. But Trump was in a class by himself.

He ended up presiding over six — count ’em, six — bankruptcies because he kept making business decisions with his gut rather than with his brain.

Edit to add:
Quote
“The Apprentice” was a pivotal event for Trump. It made him into a truly national figure, and he says the show paid him more than $200 million during its run.

Even in the strange world of TV payments and salaries, this seems like an extraordinary sum. The most likely explanations here are either lying, mentally ill or he's actually been paid this amount. With his past, I'm leaning to two of the three.

That's about $140k per episode, or $14m/year for the 14 years it ran.

It seriously ran 14 years!?

It is an unfortunate fact that every man who seeks to disseminate knowledge must contend not only against ignorance itself, but against false instruction as well.

Want to take a bet on when the first actual cannibalisation of a candidate occurs? I'm thinking something along the lines of the ending scene from Perfume within the next couple of cycles.

In case anyone feels like making some memes, here's a bunch of photos of Sanders supporters wailing and gnashing their teeth at the DNC.
