The bizarre victory of Trump the Improbable

It took all the stars to align for Trump the Improbable.  Everything had to break his way, and his improbability was essential to his win.  The Clinton campaign was lulled into making critical errors, and James Comey was so sure of her win that he could deliver her campaign a nasty October surprise without hurting her chances.  Nate Silver says Comey’s last minute intervention cost her the race, and the numbers bear him out.

I think Comey wanted to take a shot across her bow, to send a message:   we’ve got you any time we want to pull the trigger, so we’re as untouchable as J. Edgar Hoover was.

Oops.
