    the diarist's title misleads.  I know he's being figurative when he says "Nate Silver tells him to take a hike", but a) NS didn't say anything and b) not responding to a request for interview (fairly standard in many news pieces I read) does not equate into some major sign of a diss to Byers.  You are imputing here, and I think that while it serves as schadenfreude for those of us who respect Nate for his work and think that the original Politico piece was a stupid hit job that got stats wrong to begin with...well, I guess the evidence does not support the claim.
