  1. Liek the first Christopher Nolan Batman movie. I thought that was pretty good, but I would be happier if Romney lost.

  2. The problem is the the NYT would hve given Nate the boot. Meanwhile, ten thousand professionally wrong pundits are still employed today, explaining away facts and reality.
