Read Matt Lewis’ excellent take on useless trivia. I’m so tired of hearing these rubrics like “no candidate who has taken South Carolina and New Hampshire has ever not taken the nomination.” Whatever.
And the Cubs have never won the World Series. Until they do (one day). And the Patriots had never won the Super Bowl, until they did–again and again and again. I have a term for that kind of disconnected thinking: if dog, rabbit.
This is a pretty good analogy to the NH + SC = RNC theory. It’s something that sounds good — and is true … until it’s not.
Anyway, read it.
