Is Random Predictable?

As described in the Daily Caller | KausFiles today and quoted below, another close friend and associate of Barack Obama, maybe his closest friend, was "randomly" selected from a large pool of applicants for a huge government grant. It is amazing how random is defined by this administration.

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has awarded a $5.9 million grant to a University of Chicago Medical Center program run by one of President Barack Obama’s closest friends.
Obama’s longtime friend, Eric Whitaker, runs the Urban Health Initiative (UHI), which was founded as a means of connecting low-income patients with health clinics in their own communities.
The UHI was one of only 26 programs — out of 3,000 applications — to receive a slice of the $1 billion in taxpayer money from the executive’s “We Can’t Wait” initiative, which is aimed at spurring job growth via executive action, reported Keith Koffler at White House Dossier.

I wonder how many of the disappointed 2,974 applicants visited the White House, played golf with the President, have flown on Air Force One or bundled large sums of campaign funds on his behalf. This would be a great project for an enterprising reporter to delve into how many of the "random 26" have some connection to the administration? Just curious. Random thought.

It seems that if you are a regular visitor to the White House, a large dollar bundler for the re-election campaign or play golf with the President it boosts your "randomness odds" tremendously.  An amazing number of people close to this President have received grants, loans and other largesse. History will not be kind in this regard.
