I love when this happens:
In the beginning of the month, I jokingly referred to the market correction as The John McCain Market Selloff. I was — rather sarcastically, I thought — pre-empting the usual poor analysis that comes from partisan quarters.
Statements such as these are actually "tells;" They reveal a profound misunderstanding of how markets operate, and only serve to alert you to a persons political preferences. They provide no insight into the "preferences" of the markets.

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
