I said that Nate Silver once said that Derek Jeter was all washed up. He did. I said that he gave Sharron Angle an 83.4% chance of beating Harry Reid. He did. I said that he royally screwed up the UK Parliamentary elections. He did. I said that Nate Silver predicted that Joe Miller would become the Senator from Alaska. He did. Would you like some more of his fvck ups? The guy is not a god. Let him set up a book and take odds and then I'll consider him willing to put his money where his mouth is (and not a measly $1,000 either).

I have to admit, RWM, I have heard a lot of blathery nonsense about Nate Silver hatred from the Right. You're among the first to show actual examples of his predicting things incorrectly, as a substantive rebuttal. Impressive. As long as you recognize that he got all 50 states correct, all but two Senate races, and will be correct within 1 point of the popular vote totals, thus making his model clearly more accurate than just lucky, we've got something. BTW, I think the entire media was judging his model, so he kinda was "putting up his money" (his career) on those stats, and he IS going to make a killing off of that "wager."

On Tuesday only one precinct had less than 113% turnout. “The Unofficial vote count is 175,554 registered voters 247,713 vote cards cast (141.10% ). The National SEAL Museum, a St. Lucie county polling place, had 158.85% voter turn out, the highest in the county.”

The Supervisor of Elections, Gertrude Walker, had this to say concerning the 141% voter turnout: “They may have had something like that in Palm Beach County, but we’ve never seen that here.”

So maybe Allen West wasn’t crazy to ask for a lock-down on the ballot boxes and machines in this county. According to...
