Out of the mouths of babes ... :)

BRT has often talked about bloviating and pundits, the self appointed "experts" on all things politic, economic and governance, with particular emphasis on their "knowing" how to predict the future with great accuracy even though quantum mechanics and the 2nd law of thermodynamics (entropy), along with Gödel's incompleteness theorem, prove otherwise without question. With this in mind, their take on the unquestioned demise of THE DONALD is quite illuminating and humorous when you see the tally of wrong predictions made by these self appointed geniuses, courtesy The Intercept. :)

TRYING TO PREDICT the future can be fun, which is why — from office sports pools to stock market speculation — many do it. Generally, though, people make such predictions with at least some humility: with the knowledge that they do not actually know what the future holds.

But not America’s beloved political pundits. When they pronounce what the future has in store for us, it comes in the form of definitive decrees, shaped with the tone of authoritative certainty. With a few exceptions, those who purported to see the future of the 2016 GOP nomination process spent many months categorically assuring everyone that, polls notwithstanding, Donald Trump simply could not, would not, become the GOP nominee; one could spend all day posting humiliating examples, so a representative sampling will have to suffice:

Gotta love it. :)
