i suppose i am having a difficult time believing that the Reps could gain seats in the Senate but lose at a minimum 18 seats for the dems to gain control of the house ...

rich

and thanks for the clean up efforts TM.

sbw

I’ve advised the newsroom not to run any polls between now and the election.

one of the best things about 2016 was watching the Hillary meter losing pressure all through the evening.

Hard to believe Roberts just got his bullpen up. This is an elimination game. He should be throwing ballast overboard and pumping out the fresh water at this point.

Also that Cora had Price hit instead of having Moreland hit. Chance to lock it down. But he's hit all the right buttons so far. Who am I to question?

While I cannot disclose the information publicly, it’s a fact that both me and congress know who the SPY within the campaign was. Congress will likely include it in a report later on. Eyes were everywhere during 2016.

Congrats, Dave, Rocco, boatbuilder, jane, and all the other Sox fans.

Yes, Machado is a punk who deserved to lose. On the other hand, the Red Sox need to show Curt Shilling some respect. And they just about lost me having James Taylor doing "You've Got a Friend" the National Anthem for the opening game.

Large amounts of stock pledged as collateral for loans. Shadow lending is going down as the government is still trying to shrink that sector.

The Chinese FED equivalent lowered the amount of reserves the banks have to keep which frees up funds for loans, but I sense the banks aren't making that money available for lending.

From what I've been reading it sounds like liquidity is tightening.

I would suspect that the smaller companies there are having a harder time financing their firms.

From Ext's link at 06:48 on James Carville's comments:

"Kavanaugh is going to be an issue in 2018. He's going to be an issue in 2020. The Democrats are going to keep digging up stuff. The press is not going to stop all of the things that they're working on about Kavanaugh," he (Carville) said.

Rhetorical, but proves the point about Press Bias. Could you imagine this phrase ever coming out of Carville's mouth:

"The press is not going to stop all of the things that they're working on about _________."

Obama

Susan Rice
Brennen

Of course not.

The JT national anthem was indeed a low point. The owners are liberal doofuses--hell, John Henry owns the Globe. But they are my team and I am very happy.

JMHanes

Loved the Tintorettos, Dave, especially "The Miracle of the Slave." Wow. I was really interested to discover that he came from a family of dyers, because his color palettes really are luscious. It's fun to rediscover painters now, so long after first seeing their works. There are a lot that I never paid much attention to, but I find my tastes have also changed somewhat over the years.

And, as daddy might way, Woot, Woot, Woot!

116 days until Spring Training starts for the Sox.

Captain Hate

Is there a particular reason why we hate the dodgers.

In 1966, the Baltimore Orioles snookered the Reds into trading Frank Robinson for pitcher Milt Pappas, who used to be good but went right in the toilet. Frank Robby won the Triple Crown and was the only player to ever be the MVP of both leagues. He turned the Os, perpetual underachievers with good pitching, into a destruction machine. Even Father Hate and I, Washington Senators fans, were impressed with how they laid waste to the American League, usually jumping out to early leads by mashing the other teams pitching and just coasting the rest of the way.

They played the Dodgers in the World Series and all the experts were saying that with Sandy Koufax and Don Drysdale the Dodgers would roll. Even in high school I said "fuck the experts; they don't know dick". The Os swept them.

The Dodgers have historically been good but get fluffed more than a lot of other teams.

Dave (in MA)

I had Koufax and Drysdale cards when I was in kindergarten. And some black & white Batman cards. They probably ended up as noisemakers clothespinned to my bike spokes.

Captain Hate

On the other hand, the Red Sox need to show Curt Shilling some respect.

Doris Kearns Goodwin tried vainly to get moist over that.

Dave Seville

--One of my favorite baseball clips, DS--

His genius, Dave, was to turn a great clip of a ball bouncing off his head into an epic one by turning around and looking for it after he launched it with his cranium.

Dave Seville

Tommy Lasorda did just the opposite to Jose's 88 A's.
I learned a great lesson listening to him puffing the A's up before the series, letting everyone know he wasn't sure the lowly Dodgers would even be able to hang with the mighty Bash Brothers and the A's gobbled it up.
Crafty old SOB.
Just another reason to hate the stinking Dodgers.

Tom Maguire

Congratulations to Red Sox Nation. That roster and front office are really clicking.

However, presumably the 100 year cycle starts up again. That means you sell us Mookie Betts in a few years, but it also means the Yankees have to wait until 2023 to resume our rightful place on top of the heap.

Pinandpuller

Not quite sure of the reference, but I believe Tree of Life is a Conservative synagogue. The Conservative movement is indeed a sort of compromise between the Orthodox and the Reform, and consequently is dwindling, at least from what I understand.

Dave:

Here's a high res version of Christ among the Doctors which, strangely, wouldn't open from clicking the National Review article, even the image has a NR URL. Gorgeous.

There are several alternative Wikimedia/Wikipedia hi-res images of the Miracle of the Slave, but the others look like they've had a bit of Photoshop brightening up, and in the resulting color shift, the colors lost their depth and subtle relationships.

Part of why I look for downloadable pix is to be able to control the zoom levels.

Do you have a favorite Tintoretto?

Captain Hate

Canseco was a goof but he hit the hardest ball I ever saw hit in the old Cleveland Municipal Stadium. A neighbor of mine was an attorney for a local S&L and a title company used to give him a couple tickets a few times a year right by the corner of the home dugout. You had to pay constant attention to the action because foul balls would come screaming by us. Greg "The Flounder" Swindell was on the mound for the Tribe against the As and, for a welcome change, had everything working for him except for one mistake against Jose. He leaned into that sucker so hard the sound of the contact wasn't the usual sharp crack but more like a splat sound. I know this is highly unlikely but it seemed like it was still going up when it landed in the upper left field deck. If it had been more to center it may have landed in the bleachers which nobody ever did.

Bernardi started it, Rich, with the Powerline video!

I'm afraid I can't remember who posted the Mythology of the Dolphin video, which I tabbed awhile ago. It was great fun watching the dolphins watching themselves in the mirror, particularly the later sequences when they were really playing around. Strange to think that chromosome-wise were closer to dolphins than pigs.

Dave Seville

--Do you have a favorite Tintoretto?--

No. As an erstwhile artist myself I have always been most pleased with sketches that capture the essence of something. Finishing a sketch [or cartoon as they used to call them] with perfect lines to me ruins the beauty of it.
That's why I like Tintoretto; he often used bold almost reckless strokes which left many of his paintings seeming almost incomplete or unfinished but capturing the essence of what he was trying to convey better than had he been more precise or disciplined.

Anything that features large dark or negative blocks [like The Last Supper 1570] accentuates his amazing, effortless use of color [he even makes earth tones seem to glow somehow] and still demonstrates he could do the dramatic light thing with the best of them.

Police shot a black guy in Portland for no reason whatsoever. That was the narrative. He was just trying to break up a fight. Sure, he had a gun but he was helping his friend and the police gunned him down.

Oh wait, his drunk friend was carrying a gun and decided to fist fight a guy so the black guy held the gun for the friend who got his ass kicked right before the police showed up and the black guy had the gun in his hand when he was shot by police.

But whatever.

I see what you mean about glowing in the dark, so to speak. His Annunciation also makes wonderfully creative use of darks/lights.

Reps retain House majority by 5-15 seats, increase Senate majority by 3-7 seats. Pickup another 5-10 House seats in 2020, another 1-4 Senate seats.

Redistricting in 2022 will likely not count non-citizens, which will take as few as five or as many as fifteen representatives away from California. This means Republicans will likely gain 10-25 more House seats in 2022, and will be unlikely to lose the Senate (though they may lose a few seats).

Reapportionment also impacts the electoral college- California, New York, Florida and other immigrant-heavy states losing electoral votes to states like Kentucky, Montana and Ohio means that the 2024 electoral college would favor Republicans.

Effectively the Democrats are looking at losing the next 4 elections as a real possibility.
