“Just spell my name right.” That is the one and only consideration of the showman.

The graph above shows that a candidate’s standing in polls is pretty close to his percentage of daily news coverage. That is, Walker’s ten percent in the polls correlates to his ten percent of the political news coverage.

Trump has reached critical mass. People can’t stop talking about him. He’s on the surface of the sun now. His mere continued existence is self-reinforcing. He’s like me; I can’t take a crap without someone noticing, but on the other hand, not a single word of mine goes unscrutinized. And now the Future People are well aware, for example, that the federal personal income tax is a color-of-law fraud, and that there was incompatible engine hardware on Murray Street.

Maybe I’ll make allodial title my next hobby horse.
