No, my point is that your overwhelming faith in 538 and the way YOU use it is silly. Yes, I know what he is, you claim to know but yet you beat people about the head with his numbers as if they are predictive.. they aren't. So stop it, you look silly.
You can't have it both ways. You can't crow about his numbers and act as if they are meaningful then when asked for numbers on the accuracy of his work at this point in time in past elections say "no no, it isn't meant to be predictive."
Do you get it now?
