    went to UNLV.  Our statistics professors main income was writing casino and casino statistics programs.  In fact, the entire department did.  Twice a week I had to listen to not only math but economics geeks debate C++ code for some stat shit that you would never need, but makes sure they can figure out if Sex and the City 4 has a possibility of funding, and if so would it make a profit with the change of the average age of the female demographic who originally watched the show.

    Anyway, when I started attending again I made sure to check the box for perfect attendance everyday.  And they made tons of money because the boxing match they were really trying to figure out did happen and the casinos made a ton of money based off the particular program.  Apparently this is how they forecast specific profits for specific events.  

    The only statistics I know is from two unrelated freshman accounting classes.  

    Imagine 7 overweight Nate Silvers taking about Baseball all day.  And all they have to do is change a few lines of code for the event.  They charge and take the same amount of time as if each program is individual.  It's tweaked.

    Why would they send McCain up against the Clinton machine?  Internal polling doesn't lie.  Ratings and advertising is big business for the media and marketing every four years.  I doubt McCain ever has to fund raise again just because of his former nomination.

    O'Reilly watchers, meet next spring's Sarah Palin replacement.
