Time for a Nate Silver Fix

Nate has become a combination blankie/pint of Haagen Daz for me.

He’s projecting that Obama will get 299 electoral votes on November 6, and Mitt will get 239.

He gives Obama a 77.4% chance of winning, and Mitt a 22.6% chance.

The right is so infuriated with Nate that they’ve labelled him with the worst insult they can think of — they’re not challenging his mathematical model, they’re calling him gay.  This comes from the paranoid nut job who started UnSkewedPolls.com.
