Get out of here you dirty papist.

I know that I should lay off the Trump stuff.  I know that giving him attention is making it worse.  But look at it this way: I'm sure some perfectly mediocre movies came out on the same weekend as Pixels, but we spent all of our time talking about how terrible Pixels was and ignored the rest.  Anyway, more Nate Silver.

Is anyone else tired of the election coverage yet?

I'm sure glad that there's only a few months until the November election.

I almost missed this.  C-SPAN had a republican candidates' forum tonight.

Candidates come on stage at about 27 minutes in.

Sorry I vanished on you last night, Ink. All that lack of sleep caught up with me yesterday.

Usually? You mean there are times when it isn't empty?

Eh, I wonder if it's actually him trying to help expose the ridiculousness of the GOP or if he was just phoning a former president for campaign advice
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

I see this being spun a few different ways.

- The mostly harmless phone call, looking for advice from the former president he's thrown money at in the past.

- Trump and the Clintons are working together in a vast conspiracy to sink the GOP.

- Trump is getting played by the Clintons to sink the GOP.

- The Clintons are getting played by Trump.  He makes it look like the Clintons wanted to collude with him to sink the GOP, therefore sinking Hillary.

I'd go with the simpler answer.  Trump's people are a collection of the greatest asswipes in all of the NYC and New Jersey area, and someone is trying to destroy the boss for personal profit by leaking this story.  As for why the actual call was made and it's content, I have no idea.
