Science has been thoroughly Saganized. The vast majority of research papers are wrong, their results cannot be replicated. The researchers writing them often don’t even understand what they’re doing wrong and don’t care. Research is increasingly indistinguishable from politics. Studies are framed in ways that prove a political premise, whether it’s that the world will end without a carbon tax or that racism causes obesity. If they prove the premise, the research is useful to the progressive non-profits and politicians who always claim to have science in their corner. If it doesn’t, then it isn’t funded.” – Sultan Knish

“Certainly, in close races operations, targeting, and get out the vote operations (GOTV) matter a great deal. But if it ain’t close, it doesn’t matter as much.

If voters don’t like him, they won’t vote for him.” – Erick Erickson/RedState
