View Diary: Nate Silver's data sourcing leaves me speechless (121 comments)

  •  Many of us here know Nate (4+ / 0-)

    as "poblano" who just nailed the primaries and general election results for 2008.  He is a person who will go along with the data wherever it leads him and if it leads him to oppose liberal orthodoxy then so be it.

    Of course, that doesn't sit well with some here and, as this thread indicates, if he doesn't bow down to orthodoxy he can be labeled as a "teabagger".    It's a sick joke, of course, but for some of the true believers it is their twisted reality.

    Nate, it goes without saying, is not infallible but much of the commentary against his analysis is laughable because most of it (whether from the right or left) is merely based on the commenters pre-conceived notions and has little to do with the data presented.
