Last time we had such an embarrassment of embarrassments just in the Musk section, that we didn't have space for anything else. Here's what landed on the cutting room floor.
Notes on the new economy.
A few months ago we talked about the bezzle as economic stimulus (and its collapse as the opposite). Here's a footnote.

Only invest in the heavily hyped approach may have a subtle flaw.
So weird that we ended up with fast, bolt, pipe, bird, ftx et al in the past few years. No idea how that happened pic.twitter.com/8kMXueXwLw— Teddy Blank (@teddypowday) November 27, 2022
On a related note, remember all the great innovations (self-driving cars, hyperloops) where boosters argued the technological challenges were solved. The only things standing in the way were regulators.
Can't emphasize a point that @WallStCynic makes here enough: fear of "stifling innovation" has justified more regulatory inaction and enabled more fraud than anything else. It's a reasonable concern, but it's become an extremely lazy excuse for inaction.https://t.co/yyonM50oYa— E.W. Niedermeyer (@Tweetermeyer) November 23, 2022

I saw this a few days ago in LA and it reminded me of the conversation we've been having for at least five years now about the possible downsides of motivating the base by questioning elections.

Crazy stat here in Georgia-— Brent Peabody 🇺🇸🇺🇦 (@brent_peabody) November 26, 2022
As of 1:30pm today, *29,573* people have voted early in-person in blue counties
In red counties, that figure is just 2,857
Republicans really shooting themselves in the foot by not allowing Saturday voting *on their own turf*

Bonier is having a good year.
I can't think of a race where the GOP flooded the zone with garbage polls more than WA Sen. The 538 average had Murray up 4.7 pts. She's going to win by close to 15. pic.twitter.com/VmlwojJuED— Tom Bonier (@tbonier) November 23, 2022

I keep finding reasons to retweet this one.
On every issue with the possible exception of Jan 6, DeSantis is more far right than Trump. That doesn't tell us anything about Trump but it says loads about DeSantis (and about Musk). https://t.co/Icj6uAAI40— Mark Palko (@MarkPalko1) November 26, 2022

It still comes down to being insulted by a black man.

The rise of apocalyptic language and imagery in the Republican Party should have been getting more attention for a long time.

BP's statistical report is absolutely great/ an essential resource. I long have used it as an input to understanding petrodollar flows.
Would be a horrible decision to end the publication and lose all the great time series.
BP, don't do it! Costs small v the goodwill https://t.co/OFEfCOp8dv
