Drunk Nate Silver Tweets

(CNN) "Silver has received a flood of acclaim since his blog, FiveThirtyEight.com, correctly predicted who would win all 50 states in Tuesday's presidential election, even as pundits were saying the race was "too close to call."


"He's really good at math. And predicting things.

"Now the jokesters of Twitter are paying homage with a #DrunkNateSilver hashtag that re-imagines him as a belligerent, know-it-all prognosticator.

Here are some of our favorites:

1. I am savoring the Nate Silver triumph!

Joe Scarborough's little quip about him being a joke should be replayed over and over and over again for its sheer dumbfuckedness!

3. I want to send these to my RW friends, but they will never get any of this


These are just great.

Folks, do not underestimate the power of a creative mind and a sharp sense of humor. There was a lot of that during the campaign, and that stood up to Adelson's millions in teevee advertising. Intellect is our unfair advantage.

Intellect, and our willingness to look at reality even when it isn't what we want to see. Those are our advantages. You see none of either from the GOP today.
