Sir Humphrey Appleby: Oh is that you Norman? ‘Walkies’.

Yes Prime Minister One of Us 1986

As a rule I don’t like posts with question marks in the title as it means people are guessing but something hit me in the middle of work that made a lot of sense.

A lot of people were shocked at the VERY early Fox call in fact I recall reading how at the time of the call the 8-1 betting odds favoring Trump suddenly plunged to 2-1 which got a lot of bookies thinking something was up.

That’s when I remembered the 1919 World Series.

In the first game of the 1919 World Series, Eddie Cicotte of the Chicago White Sox went to the mound and promptly hit the first batter he faced, Cincinnati’s Morrie Rath, square in the back.

Too much adrenaline, most in the crowd thought, or perhaps a case of butterflies.

But for others more decidedly and deviously in the know, the 35-year old’s first delivery was deadly accurate.

It was a signal that the World Series was on its way to being fixed.

Cicotte’s beanball was the public signal that the game was on and when I remembered it it struck me that if you were going to have that meeting I speculated about a while back where everyone agreed to get blood on their hands

No each of them had to have blood on their hands so to speak. Each of them had to be sure that the other bosses necks would be on the line. Each of the had to be sure that they would be all in on the steal (and I suspect each of them had to be sure that the media and the tech giants would back them up, I would not be surprised if there was coordination with those folks during the pause in the count.) and I suspect only when they agreed to hang together rather than risk hanging repeatedly did the counts resume.

…then you need a public signal to get the ball rolling. Something out in the open that everyone could see to be sure nobody backed out and of course something for the foot soldiers who would have to get the ballots ready, fill them out and ferry them to the various places knew things were on.

I submit and suggest that the most logical way to send such a signal would be through the media and the best type of signal would be a move that would be considered inexplicable from a source that would not be expected.

Even better the call of Arizona also fed the narrative that would be necessary to sell the fraud, although to be fair, the media would have been more than happy to buy it for any reason.

Again I am just speculating and have absolutely no proof of this, but if I was the guy in charge of getting the word out on election night that the fix was in, that’s how I’d do it.

The Big Picture is all a flutter with this headline:

Roger Ailes to be Indicted

OMG this is a story that will rock the nation! Let’s take a look at the basis for this incredible story:

Someone I spoke with claimed that Ailes was scheduled to speak at their event in March, but canceled. It appears that Roger’s people, ostensibly using a clause in his contract, said he “cannot appear for legal reasons.”

I asked “What, precisely, does that mean?”

The response: “Roger Ailes will be indicted — probably this week, maybe even Monday.”

That’s it? This is what makes a story a headline on Memeorandum?

Barry I don’t know you but C’mon!

I predict that the left will get all Fizsmasey over this nonsense and will be sadly disappointed when nothing comes of it.

You heard it here first.

Nuff said.

Update: Mika almost trumps it: “There will be firings but it won’t be miss Sherrot!”

Bazinga!

Here is he breakdown among democrats on a few questions in that poll:

Q: Do you think Arizona was right to take action by passing it’s new immigration law?

Yes 43% No 41%

Q: Who deserves to be targeted by demonstrations over the immigration issue. The US or Mexico?

Mexico 60%
US 17%

Q: Do you favor building a wall or fence across the border?

Yes 46% No 47%

Q: Do you favor using US troops to patrol the border?

Yes 53% No 41%

Q: Do you favor using the National Guard at the border?

Yes 73% No 22%

Q: Do you favor fines and criminal charges against employers who hire illegal immigrants?

Yes 71% No 23%

Remember these results are all among DEMOCRATS who were a plurality of those polled by a margin of 41% to 37% of republicans with 18% independents.

Democrats please please please keep bringing this up. Protesters please please please keep protesting this law. Rachel Maddow, earn more flowers!

Update: Glenn makes a very important point:

Forget the Arizona bill itself. What this poll says is that despite weeks of national-media coverage that was unrelentingly negative, calling the bill racist, drawing Nazi analogies, etc. — only 15 percent are really against it. Sorry guys — you’re still talking, but people aren’t listening.

When you only talk to yourself that’s all you ever hear.
