sid: Jeff, can you re-post Cecil's science analysis that Porch and Mayrose are referencing? I didn't read (much of) it the first time it was written. I'm afraid I don't have the stomach to go back and find it now. Here's the last dedicated Brady thread: http://justoneminute.typepad.com/main/2015/08/breaking-news-in-the-brady-case.html The one before that: http://justoneminute.typepad.com/main/2015/07/go-tom-brady.html The one before that: http://justoneminute.typepad.com/main/2015/06/sorta-kinda-clearing-tom-brady.html And the original monster Brady thread: http://justoneminute.typepad.com/main/2015/05/friday-night-late-night-open-thread.html (Porch won)

Porch: NFL ball tampering regs are in place; the teams know the regs. What are the regs about ball tampering?

Is that a burrito in your gym shorts, or are you just happy to see me? If it's a burrito, I'm happy to see you. I hope it's a burrito.
What happens when Carson has a break out, putting him in the top tier of Republican candidates? Trump takes notice... Asked by TheDC whether being a doctor provides the necessary experience to be president, Trump said while Carson is “a wonderful guy,” he thinks it would be “very tough” for someone who spent his life as a surgeon to handle the job. “I think it’s a very difficult situation that he’d be placed in. He’s really a friend of mine, I just think it’s a very difficult situation that he puts himself into, to have a doctor who wasn’t creating jobs and would have a nurse or maybe two nurses. It’s such a different world. I’ve created tens of thousands of jobs over the years.” Anyway, the link takes you to the Tatler, who is relaying the story from the Daily Caller. The sentence before the one quoted above in the original piece is.... But despite the rising threat of Carson in Iowa, Trump has not yet attacked the world-renowned neurosurgeon. In other words, the Daily Caller thought to itself, "self, I notice Trump hasn't attacked Carson. I wonder if we can get him to do so. Sure would be good for clicks....." and voila, the sausage gets made.

What’s not helping: the document review platform the department uses can't ingest most forms of electronic data. Because of that, "most potentially responsive documents must first be printed and then scanned into the system, even if documents are received electronically,” the department states. Here we see the State Department's "Document Review Platform" and the process by which document are fed into it:

maryrose: Both you and Jane are getting the wrong impression of my opinion of allot this My opinion is that your arguments are based on emotion not fact. You yourself just said you were relying on "a gut feeling". Facts will not sway your gut. I don't think I'm wrong at all.

maryrose: How come he was willing to take a one game suspension I think you are more emotionally involved in this than any actual Patriots fan.

I have to say - a response to and comment on the Brady thing is funny from a sockpuppet designed expressly to express reinforce displeasure at TC wanting to talk about Brady. Like ha ha funny and everything. Brady is innocent.

Dayspring went to work for Walker's Superpac. If Dayspring had any direct contact with Walker or the campaign, both broke election laws. Walker has been advised by neither Schmidt nor Dayspring. There's an answer for his slump, and it isn't some prominent kampaign kunsultant we don't like.

Heh, narc tried to get there before me... Now that was daestrom, nearly as bad. Posted by: narciso | September 03, 2015 at 07:33 PM daestrom = Dayspring Brad Dayspring. Schmidt went after Walker when he got in the race.

CH: Walker screwed himself by hiring that idiot Schmidt. I don't think Walker hired Schmidt.

maryrose: I would be interested in your take on this Brady decision This is the greatest decision since that time I chose decaf for my after lunch coffee an hour ago. No, wait. I forgot that time I decided to plug my phone in before the battery died 10 minutes ago. Best decision since then, definitely.

The important thing here is... The 2015 Grand Slam of golf featuring the year's major champions has been canceled as the PGA of America found it too complicated to move it from Donald Trump's Los Angeles course. ...I can't wait for Trump's tweet response.

I have to admit, when the news said that Obama stared down a glacier yesterday, my first thought was Hillary and my second thought was Jeb.

Paul at Powerline asks, HAS HILLARY CLINTON CREATED A NATIONAL SECURITY DISASTER? Well, if we want to go back to the source, I think Hillary's parents created the national security disaster.

Quick look at the polls as it relates to the CNN debate... Using RCP - and using the original CNN debate rules - Carly would be in 11th at 2.9% in the polls, with Christie edging her out with 3.2% Using the new rules - only poll since the 1st debate, Carly moves up to 7th place - passing Kasich, Huckabee, Paul, and Christie - all of whom would still be on the main stage if the decision were made today (we'd have 11 on the main stage, no one will be kicked off for not being in the top 10 since the first debate if they are still in the top 10 since 7/16). However, using CNN's reason for altering their rules - that there just have not been enough post 1st debate polls - if we assume there were 3x as many polls (putting it roughly close to what CNN said happened in 2007 and 2011), and assuming those polls mirrored the ones that have come out since the first debate, Carly would be in 10th and Christie would be kicked off the main stage. FWIW, no matter how you slice the polls, Christie comes in with 3.2%
