Nate (and of course I) was right
I'm not going to crow about Obama winning (I really do just want the country to come together and the political parties to reach some compromises) but I will crow about Nate Silver's PERFECT election predictions and call out all the idiots who attacked him and his methodology. This is a win for science and reason over mindless punditry and sophistry. Nate's model called all 50 states and the popular vote with, shocker, polling data and math. So fuck you unskewed polls guy, fuck you joe scarborough, fuck you George Will and fuck you all the morons who reject science and reason in favor of "their gut". Sadly, Scarborough and the rest won't pay any price for their idiocy. They'll just keep babbling and keep getting paid.
