Pseudo-Random Thoughts

Nate Silver Doesn't Know What Is Happening In Alabama:  (Neither do I.)

And he is rather peevish about it, judging by the title of this post:   "What The Hell Is Happening With These Alabama Polls?".
What we’re seeing in Alabama goes beyond the usual warnings about minding the margin of error, however.  There’s a massive spread in results from poll to poll — with surveys on Monday morning showing everything from a 9-point lead for Moore to a 10-point advantage for Democrat Doug Jones — and they reflect two highly different approaches to polling.
When the pollsters are being honest, their results should differ — but not by that much.

What do the British bettors think?  As I write, that Roy Moore has a 68.5 percent chance of winning.
- 8:28 AM, 12 December 2017   [link]


Since It Is Election Day In Alabama, it's a good time to recycle a very old election joke:
A little Protestant boy in East Belfast was standing in the street, crying his eyes out.  A lady stopped to console him.
'What's the matter, little boy?'
Between sobs, the child replied:
'My father doesn't love me.'
'Of course he does,' she tried to reassure him, 'What makes you say such a thing?'
''He's been back to vote three times since he died, but he's never come to see me once.' (p. 85)
If I were telling that joke here in the United States, I'd change it, making the location Chicago or Louisiana, or some other place famous for vote fraud.

I'm not sure where that joke originated, though I wouldn't be surprised if I learned that similar jokes were told in ancient Athens.

(For some audiences, especially younger audiences, you might have to mention the vote fraud before telling the joke.)

Judging By The Size Of That Settlement, Alcee Hastings Has Been A Very Bad Boy:  Again.

Or perhaps we should say as usual, considering his record.
It appears yet another elected official on Capitol Hill has been exposed for inappropriate behavior.

Democratic Congressman Alcee Hastings of Florida reportedly settled a sexual harassment case back in 2014.  His accuser was rewarded $220,000 from the Treasury Department.   In other words, it was funded by taxpayers.
For the record:  Hastings denies both the harassment and the settlement.

So far, I haven't seen any reaction from Nancy Pelosi.

(Alcee Hastings)

This Latest Terrorist Doesn't Appear To Be Competent:  For which we may be grateful.
An ISIS-inspired would-be suicide bomber set off a homemade explosive device at the Port Authority Bus Terminal subway station Monday morning, seriously wounding himself and injuring three others, law enforcement sources said.

The man — a 27-year-old Brooklyn man identified by high ranking police sources as Akayed Ullah — had wires attached to him and a 5-inch metal pipe bomb and battery pack strapped to his midsection as he walked through the Manhattan transit hub.
According to the police, Ullah has been in the United States for seven years, which suggests to me that he may have become radicalized here.

As I have said from time to time, to know us isn't necessarily to love us.

So far, I haven't seen anything on his immigration status, or why he was permitted to come here originally, though I would guess that he didn't come on an H1-B visa.

It's Foggy Down Here, But Clear Above The Fog:  So the Mt. Rainier cameras are showing some lovely scenes.  (And the Mt. St. Helens cameras may do the same later this afternoon.)

As I write, you can see a good view of Mt. Adams from the Muir camera.

The weather forecasters are predicting that this inversion, unusual for Decembers here, will last a few more days.

Today's "Pepper . . . And Salt" is amusing.

It Is Probably Just A Coincidence:  But in recent weeks, local TV stations have run these three movies:   All the King's Men (2006 version), The Caine Mutiny, and The Manchurian Candidate.

In order, a movie about a corrupt demagogue with strong appeal to poor Southern whites, a movie about a leader who cracks up under pressure, and a movie about an American who is a Russian agent.

As I said, it is probably just a coincidence.

Dour George Will Finds Reasons For Hilarity in this last year's events.

For instance.
Washington's subway banned a civil liberties group's ad consisting entirely of the text of the First Amendment, which ostensibly violated the rule against ads "intended to influence members of the public regarding an issue on which there are varying opinions."
Now that is almost too perfect.

(Will has reasons to be dour.)

This Week's Collection Of Political Cartoons from Politico.

My favorites:  Gustavo Rodriguez's Kim, Michael Ramirez's Kim, and Ramirez's Palestinian.

(The fourth cartoon, by Jeff Danziger, comes awfully close to bigotry.)

These Three Questions Aren't Illegal:  (As far as I know.)

But I haven't seen any journalists asking them:
  1. Could better federal and state policies have made California's wild fires this year less devastating?
  2. Are any elected officials partly to blame for the size of the fires?
  3. Has the Democratic governor, Jerry Brown, responded effectively to the fires?
Though I have my suspicions, I don't know the answers to any of those questions — but I do wish some of our journalists would ask them.

(In particular, I suspect that adherents to the Green religion may have encouraged Democratic officials to set rules for forest management that make massive fires more likely.

Jerry Brown)

Chris Matthews Just Told an excellent joke.
MSNBC "Hardball" host Chris Matthews said Thursday night that "the worst you can say about Democrats is that they're too pure" in light of recent resignation announcements made by Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) and Sen. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) amid sexual harassment allegations.
(Yes, I know Conyers was a congressman, not a senator — and so does The Hill.  They just slipped, as we all do from time to time.)

It is possible that Matthews did not intend that as a joke — but an unintended joke can still be funny.

What Do British Bettors Think, Now?  That Roy Moore is likely to win the Alabama Senate race (76.2%), and that Donald Trump may be forced out early (51.6%).

The bettors give him just a 27.8 percent chance of winning the 2020 election.

As usual, I remind you that the odds are updated every 5 minutes, and so may be different by the time you click on that link.

(I think the bettors over-estimate the chance (31.0%) that Trump will be forced out in 2018, but have no strong opinions on any of the other odds.)

Worth Reading:  Bella DePaulo's op-ed:
I spent the first two decades of my career as a social scientist studying liars and their lies.  I thought I had developed a sense of what to expect from them.  Then along came President Trump.  His lies are both more frequent and more malicious than ordinary people’s.
Here's an unhappy thought:  Some, let me repeat, some, Trumpistas love Trump's malicious falsehoods — as long as they are directed against people the Trumpistas dislike, or even hate.

This Twist On An Old Saying made me laugh out loud.

And then learn a little more about this problem in cognitive bias.

Another Pawn Sacrificed?  Yesterday, I argued that Nancy Pelosi's abandonment of John Conyers is most likely part of preparation for an attack on Donald Trump.

And I think the resignation of Democratic Senator Al Franken can be seen as part of the same preparation — which is why Newt Gingrich and Laura Ingraham were defending Franken.
On Wednesday night, Fox News made a rather shocking defense of Sen. Al Franken (D-MN). In her opening monologue, Laura Ingraham cautioned her viewers before they joined the pile-on with dozens of Senate Democrats who have called on Franken to resign because it is all a “political calculation” in order to take down President Trump in the long run.
That the nation would be better off if both Franken and Trump were out of office is probably not an idea that has occurred to Ingraham.

Israel Drives Much Of The World Nutty:  It is constantly held to much higher standards than other nations — and receives attention all out of proportion to its actual importance.

So I was not surprised by the reaction to Donald Trump's announcement that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, and that the United States would begin acting on that fact — though not in a way that would hinder any possible peace agreement.

Incidentally this has been American policy for many years, and successive presidents have had to waive acting on it, every six months, as Trump did in June.

Right now, his statement of the obvious is the biggest story at the BBC, though even they don't seem to be able to explain why it is more important than, for instance, the ongoing war in central Africa, or the Rohingya refugee crisis.

The BBC can't plead temporary insanity because they have been nutty about Israel for so many years.  In 2004, for instance, they commissioned a report examining "allegations of anti-Israel bias" — and then fought expensive legal battles in order to keep the report secret.

I think it fair to conclude that the report is not entirely complimentary.

(For the record:  I would not have issued that Trump statement.  Sometimes when you are surrounded by nutty people, it is best not to provoke them, unless you have something to gain from that provocation.

This is not because I think his statement will do anything to hinder the nonexistent peace "process", sacred to diplomats and journalists all over the world.  It is obvious, or at least it should be obvious, that no peace agreement can be negotiated while the Palestinians are split into two warring factions, the PLO and Hamas.

There is currently no one for the Israelis to negotiate with, and I see no reason to think that will change, any time soon.)

Worth Reading:  Andrew McCarthy's article, "On Strzok, Let’s Wait for the Evidence".
The fact that an FBI agent involved in the Clinton emails investigation was reportedly a partisan Democrat is not in itself damning.

I’m taking a “wait and see” attitude on FBI agent Peter Strzok, who is now enmeshed in a political storm involving both the Clinton and the Trump investigations.  You know why?  Well . . . it’s because I can’t stand the Clintons.
But McCarthy nonetheless failed to prosecute them when he had the chance.

I'm not a fan of the Clintons — or the Trumps — but I believe I could be a fair juror were I on a jury that was deciding whether the evidence of their guilt met the high standards our laws require.  And I think most of you could, too, regardless of your views on either family.

(There is a practical political advantage to having partisans on the other side making such decisions.  When McCarthy decided not to prosecute, no one assumed he had done so because he was a Clinton crony.

His decision was more credible because of his political views.)

76 Years After Pearl Harbor:  This year, as I have before, I will recycle three of my four posts from 2011: the complete failure of the first phase of the Japanese attack, why we were surprised, and Roosevelt's "day of infamy" speech.

(I particularly recommend the surprise post, since I think it has relevance today.)

This year, as usual, Bing has an appropriate picture; this year, as usual, Google is ignoring the anniversary.  (Google did commemorate it — barely — last year.)

Did Nancy Pelosi Sacrifice A Pawn To Clear The Way For An Attack On The King?  Specifically, did Minority Leader Pelosi abandon Congressman (and "icon") John Conyers in order to clear the way for an attack on Trump?

I think so, though I will admit, immediately, that I have no direct evidence to support that tentative conclusion.

In the past, Pelosi has been remarkably forgiving, shall we say, of past misdeeds by her supporters in the House.  (You can see two of the many examples here and here.)

It is possible she has changed her heart, at least on sexual harassment, but I think it more likely that she believes she may again be Speaker, after the 2018 election, and so in a position to preside over an impeachment inquiry and, possibly, vote.

Which would be harder to do if Conyers were still in the House.

Now, That is an impressive Rolodex.

I assume a series of executive secretaries did much of the work, but it is still impressive.
