      That's the problem.

      He "earned" credibility by accurate election poll analysis. Now he's taken that credibility and is spinning it into anti-science rightwing propaganda. Of course he doesn't care what the reality-based community thinks of him.

      •  This used to be a reality based community. (0+ / 0-)

        Which he was part of. He was on DKos when it mattered; before it went from an activist site to a debate society. Nate Silver is still Nate Silver. It's Dkos that has changed.

          deniers like Pielke and other purveyors of rightwing junk-"science" bullshit and creationism and stuff, and now poor beleaguered dKos has joined the 97% of climate scientists who "get it" and is committed to real science? But we used to be rightwing shills like Silver and now we're not? Really?

          Who knew?
