I've been very amused by the various attacks of late on 538 by statisticians criticizing his methodology. Part of it is his smugness, for which he deserves to eat crow, and the rage of entitlement he displays towards his critics. Yeah, past successes are acknowledged and all that, but some humility, no-chin.

His insane bunker mentality is one of the few worthwhile cherries on this shit sundae.

Did these fragile flowers really think he was going to be nice to them on an "off-the-record" meeting? Oh, wait, I know the answer to that:

They're so used to being able to sit at the big kid's table that they thought they were part of the club.

“I went into journalism because I love being a translator from English to English,” he asserts in his opening paragraph, and interpreted literally what he is saying is that he enjoys doing work that is wholly unnecessary.

Sexual harassment is abhorrent in the abstract, but the thought of that jowly light-bulb head proposition women is nauseating. I suppose that really does emphasize his power—I am utterly unattractive and have a nasty personality, but I can still do this to you. Wonder what role he'll have in the White House in a month or so?

I'll never get the power as a turn on thing. Give me looks over power any day! (And of course looks and kindness).

The most disgusting thing I have ever heard is when sexting messages came out from a relationship between the former MO house leader (state level) and an intern. He wrote something to the effect of "I can't wait to make you quiver." He is pictured below. I am dry heaving just thinking about it.

Makes me think of a description of Steve Bannon that I came across months ago: He looks like the guy your mom fucks for a week right after the divorce.
