FiveThirtyEight.com’s Nate Silver is still (more than a month later) trying to explain away how Hillary Clinton was upended by Donald Trump in a presidential election result that shocked the beltway media and rendered political punditry obsolete. His latest effort is to fantasize about the election being held on October 27th.

As with most so-called experts, Silver is less concerned about justice or what the Comey letter was actually about than he is with the outcome it might have produced.

Shh! That goes against their narrative.

Even Ron Fournier was not amused.

Besides, why should we take the word of a guy who published a piece on Election Day saying that Hillary Clinton had a greater than 70 percent chance of winning regarding any hypothetical outcome?
