Best Line of the Day?

Brad DeLong channels Cosma Shalizi:

Haven’t you just constructed an enormous and pointless intellectual apparatus involving […], in increasing order of implausibility, speaking intelligent aquatic waterfowl, options pricing, Vulcans, teleportation, Bayesianism, and time-travel just in order to be able to say the obvious thing: “The probability of an HRC victory is uncertain: it might be as low as 0.45 or as high as 0.95, and we will be able to sharpen our estimate as election day comes closer”?

Well, I laughed. Maybe you just had to be there. Or read the whole thing. Note that the order of implausible events is nicely snarky.

Everyone Hates Cruz

Add John Boehner to the list:

“Lucifer in the flesh,” the former speaker said. “I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life.”

I don’t see it in the archives, but it’s hard to believe I haven’t blogged my favorite Ted Cruz joke yet:

Q: Why should people hate Ted Cruz on sight?

A: It saves time.

OK, it’s my only Ted Cruz joke so far, but comments are open.
