So DNC, sure was a good idea to back Clinton over Sanders, eh? Clinton is just so much more electable.

[get prepped for some ramblings]    I get more depressed than scared.    Her voting record as a senator isn't good at all(in my opinion) with votes for the Iraq War(and not apologizing for it till

Not gonna lie, when I see shit like that where someone/some group has "predicted the last N elections correction" correctly, what runs through my head is:

"Did you hear that Blort's is predicting that the Indians will win the Series?"

"Who is Blort's and why should I care what they think?"

"They predicted the winners of the last TEN Super Bowls correctly!"

I feel this way about stock market oracles as well.

 

"Did you hear about this guy who has made good picks in the last five years?"

 

"Sure. Did you hear about the time half a million people rolled dice and one of them rolled six sixes in a row?"

A thought: 

 

America's 2016 election is actually normal, at least compared to the rest of the world. What's been weird is the ~150 years of a stable American government, where every other major country seems to be in political upheaval every so often. This is especially true if the outcome of the 2016 election turns out to be relatively tame, which I think is likely if Clinton is Obama 2.0 or if Trump turns out to be decent. 

 

Even compared to what's happening now, the 2016 election doesn't actually seem "worse" than what's happening in South Korea or not as impactful long term as Brexit will likely be and neither president is likely to get to Hollande's current level of approval in France (4% iirc) even if they are the most despised people in American politics.

Potential for actual nuclear holocaust.  No matter which way it goes.

 

That is what makes this serious bizness.

But what about the mystical Chinese Monkey that has predicted the election?  Do you not believe in that either?

I see Donald Trump has received the coveted Dave Chappelle vote.

 

Dave Chappelle Slams Clinton, Defends Most Gangsta Candidate Ever Donald Trump

 

And while this news might have been relevant were it still 2004, it's been apparent for a long time that Chappelle has always been at heart a core Trump supporter.

Edit: Boring.  Apparently all that happened was someone yelled something about this anti-trump guy having a gun.
