Is There an Obama Assassin on Intrade?

With customary dignity and staggering restraint, Five Thirty Eight does an amazing job burying the lede in an otherwise wonky piece about online "predict whatever you want" market, Intrade. You see, it seems like some rogue trader is skewing the market by buying massive amounts of John McCain shares, dumping Obama shares and, here’s the kicker, buying up Hillary Clinton shares. As if this person knew something bad was going to happen to Hopey McHoperson.

It’s all the more the suspect in light of this good news, and this all too predictable news.

[Bonus: John Wilkes Booth was a dish, no? Especially considering he was kind of the Jim Belushi of his time.]
