As expected, Nate Silver was acceptably modest. It even got to the point where when John Stewart started his liberal jackoff of suggesting the republicans were toast for a generation, Nate recoiled and said something like "well no, you look at what gay marriage and abortion may have cost them, and how close this election is, the message of reducing debt is very appealing to many voters. If the republicans can just get their act together, they can win". He doesn't sound like a wild-eyed lefty to me. More like a libertarian. Like almost every other intelligent voter who is repulsed by the tea party but not excited about voting for democrats.
<WarMoose> Think about how stupid the average person is. Now realize that half of them are dumber than that.
<Chunda> Why half?
