"What if, prior to the game, he assured the bullpen he would drive in 10 runs? What if he didn't but some 4D poster assured JOM he would drive in 10 runs? How much blame goes to the player vs the poster. That's the real question here as far as I'm concerned.

"Shouldn't those who are prepared to give Trump a share of the credit accept that the same metrics allow for him to get a share of the blame?" Not impossible but the logic is flawed. Trump could improve the odds of keeping the house by 10% and still not be enough. So no, there's no question in my mind that Trump is a net increase and therefore credit if win and no acceptance of any blame.

I said "our own side." If the analysis is "objective" side shouldn't matter.

"we didn't get Trump by being people that excluded our own side from objective analysis" To be fair, according to "objective analysis" Hillary should have been president. So ...

"Wait and See 4Ders" Not that I am keeping score or anything but so far Trump has played the game better than anything I've ever seen. That he is attaining mythical legendary status about whom stories of implausible feats of great renown will be told and retold for centuries to come ... does not bother me at all.

"people who voted for a clean sweep of the stables" Very small number compared to people who voted for:Not Hillary; The Wall; The Major Dude; Sanity. Dropping the hammer on "The Historic Heroes of Obama's 50%" without public support and against MFM outrage would have resulted in a leftist tantrum worse than Nam and Watergate put together. If that causes "loss of support" of the tiny number who want that ... well ... see ya ...

"It's TM's blog, his decision, but would it hurt to ask?" It's been a while (a few years I think) but TM did survey the regulars at the time about going to login for posting. Instead of a vote how about everyone who wants to go login just get a login? When almost all have logins either TM can make it login to post or maybe some coder here can make a version of killfile that only shows login comments and all non login comments are click to open. If not too busy I'd take a shot at it myself.

"Let's hear from ..." Let's hear what she sounds like lecturing a class. Or video hanging out with family or friends. Bet that would expose the baby talk put-on.

MR, Mueller's boss is RR, who may at this time be doing what Trump wants.

"Boris's version of RG's position" My recollection is RG stated words to the effect "even if I am wrong about [whoever], Trump will have them working for Trump no matter what color hat they wear"

"do you mean that he will start making that point now?" No

"that does not paint a good picture of Rosenstein" But it is consistent with what RG was saying early on, RR is going to be working for Trump no matter which side he thinks he's on. A point many in the skeptic group seemed to ignore.

"beat the Dhimmis smash mouth style ... then ... declassify and the massive Napoleonic style shelling will begin" That's what I think too.

Sub-optimal outcome Jonah? You can't always get what you want. But if you try sometimes, you might find, You get what you need. Getting what we needed is hardly a sub-optimal outcome compared to what you wanted.

"allowing the Leftists to define acceptable behavior" Define? yes ... adhere? no. Putting on a pretense of emotionless prim propriety is not only a straitjacket ... it also becomes white toga sanctimony against fighting back, for example NeverTrump.
