"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

"TURN THOSE MACHINES BACK ON! TURN THOSE MACHINES BACK ON!!!"


One of the favorite tropes of the more insane Sanders supporters is that the media is promoting a narrative that favors Clinton.  You know, like the new poll from California that shows Sanders and Clinton tied for the primary race (the margin of error is 5-7%).

Funny nobody is writing stories about the other recent California poll that puts Hillary ahead of Sanders by 18 points.   The PPIC polled 550 likely voters; the SurveyUSA polled over 800 likely voters.  And a somewhat older poll polled over 1600 likely voters, and gave Clinton a 10 point victory.  538 is giving much greater weight to the SurveyUSA poll than the PPIC poll, for reasons which I’m sure have do with the patriarchy and rigged primaries and being generally undemocratic.

Then again, the 538 analysis is not driving the narrative.
