Nate Silver’s model predicts only 25% chance of Romney victory; Twitter predicts 100% chance of mockery

There is nothing like a good Nate Silver drubbing. And Ace of Spades does so in swoon-worthy fashion. As Twitchy reported, the latest Pew poll has Mitt Romney up by four among likely voters. And it’s not just Andrew Sullivan who is bursting into tears.

Indeed. Nate Silver of The New York Times is smoking something wacky, clearly, as he swiftly clutched his pearls over the Pew poll last night.

Breitbart.com does an amazing job of destroying Mr. Silver’s attempt at a spot as captain of the Obama propaganda cheerleading squad.

And it doesn’t matter that today Nate Silver jumped the shark with his ridiculous 25.2% prediction of a Romney victory. Because Silver doesn’t exist in order to give anyone intelligent analysis. He’s there to make Obama boosterism look intelligent and thoughtful and fact-based, no matter how ridiculous and counter-intuitive and fantastic the end result.

Seriously, read the whole thing.

Snake oil salesman Silver continued today.

Oh, cupcake. Aren’t you just precious? Put down the stats and stuff and hold onto that ledge.

Ace of Spades gave Silver, and his “models” the business, as only he can. With lines like “my model indicates Obama is The Batman,”Ace of Spades pounds Nate Silver and his sad Pew poll spin.

Oh, my! We are gasping for breath. Other Twitter users can’t resist joining in the parody fun.

Ace of Spades continues with his trouncing.

Bonus points for the “Saved by the Bell” reference!

But it is the right time to giggle-swoon. Keep the hits coming, Twitter. We are sure you will have ample opportunity as the hilarious meltdowns and freak-outs continue.

Bless their hearts.

    I’ve never trusted Nate Silver, lol. He weights PPP as his most reliable poll.

    Nate Silver is trying furiously to knit some new clothes for his naked emperor.

    What model is this, exactly? We’re pretty sure it’s not Jenna Jameson. Do you think Nate Silver’s model is Brianna Banks? If so, is he prepared to explain the details of this model to the public? With illustrations?

    I suspect that 50% of this is silly. +/- 51%

    Who got my Obama fone!

    Silver used to blog for the DailyKos.. I think that says all we need to know.

    There is a fascinating pattern in the left wing priesthood. The intellectuals have the appearance of good education; they are able to speak well, use big words, and in Nate’s case, to analyze data rigorously.

    But often, and unexpectedly, there is something “off” about them. Like a verbal tic or something. They’re talking and sounding in full command, and all of a sudden you hear a garbled phrase, like one of those television anchors who has a mini-stroke on camera. You sense something is terribly wrong. You’re saying, wow this guy basically has it together, what’s he doing? He’s losing it.

    That’s Nate Silver. He passes as an intellectual of sorts. But then he flings something and you say, did he just throw feces at us? OMG.

    It’s surreal.

    So is this supposed to be what passes for “humor” among liberals? Bless their sad little hearts.

    • orringtonmom (D)

      uh, no… i passes as humor among conservatives. re-read with that perspective.

    The tweet regarding Jim Hansen makes a good point. No matter what data you feed Hansen’s model, random noise, 100 years of constant 100 deg. days, or whatever, after Hansen’s ‘adjustments’, you get the hockey stick.
    Got tickets for Mitt this week. Contemplating making up a button with Big Bird’s image on it, saying, “I’m Voting For Mitt”

    I wonder if the Obama is still feeding him with internal polls or if that stopped the day after the debate.
