The Why Not Guy: randomjsa: I do think its funny that people seem to put so much stock in Nate Silver because he predicted 49 out of 50 states in 2008.Ah, I needed that laugh. Thanks random.

Riche: Frederick: Osomatic: Frederick: log_jammin: Yeah. If Obama wins, they'll wake up the next day angry at the world but will never consider the possibility they were lied to and lied to them selves. I don't get how people go through life like that.It's a baffling phenomenon to me; the people who can successfully lie to themselves. In my experience there is a correlation between those people and early life religious indoctrination.You may have something there, but... what about people who get no religious indoctrination? We've been raising our child as, basically, "nothing." We're not religious, but we don't say religious people are bad. We tell him that it's up to him what to believe without telling him what we (his mom and I) believe, which is, well, nothing. When he came back from his pre-school filled with ideas about God, we said "well, that's what some people believe." I like to think we're raising him to create his own beliefs, but... sometimes I wonder. We've also tried to show him and talk to him about what science says, without being dogmatic about it. I fear we may have been a bit dogmatic about stuff like psychics and astrology, though. But I feel okay about that, really. That stuff is just stupid - I don't think anybody would consider us to be "indoctrinating" him if we warned him off of false advertising, for instance. Still, we've done our very best to be hands-off with religion.And I guess I wonder... this is a *really* smart kid, but one who has been actually diagnosed with at least mild ADD or ADHD... what is he going to end up believing? I wish I knew. We tried so hard to just leave it open but I'm not sure we succeeded.When as a kid I began to question obvious flaws in the Christian bible and other seemingly bright kids around me were not, I made note of it. I never understood how they could reconcile logical flaws with religious dogma.I was raised in a similar environment to your son. Both my parents grew up in the church and then had a falling out (mother = Italian Catholic / father = German Lutheran). Religion was always by my choice only. I attended a Christian bible school by choice, and quit going by my choice. I attended mass sometimes and youth group because I liked the kids who went to that church. Ultimately I chose to eschew religion and I claim agnostic.But I can tell you there are cons to being agnostic or religiously void. I feel I am by nature a spiritual person, and I never found a satisfactory outlet for that spirituality. And the older I get the more I feel like I'm missing that outlet.\I'm sure what I've said was less then helpful -sorryCheck out the Unitarian-Universalists. With them you get the church-like community and spirituality without the dogma.Or look into Buddhism. You don't have to buy into the reincarnation or other stuff like that to benefit.
mediablitz: Empty Matchbook: Wondering why the author is so obsessed with Nate Silver's physical attributes...Reminds him of the twink sites he regularly visits?

TV's Vinnie: Oh man. WHEN Obama wins his second term, the WHARRGARBL from these rightards is gonna be downright Apocalyptic. I better stock up on paper towels and Jergens to enjoy that moment for as long as I can.
log_jammin: I have a feeling we will never hear anything else about "UnSkewedPolls.com" after November.
aaronx: If Nate Silver was listed in Out magazine's 2010 Out 100, my guess is that he's actually gay. With which, as we all know, there is nothing wrong.
ArcadianRefugee: Nate Silver is a man of very small stature, a thin and effeminate man with a soft-sounding voiceIt's fun to watch the Right flailing like this.
He's not even closeted? You mean, he's going out, having all sorts of sexy man-sex, and doesn't even feel bad about it afterwards? IT'S NOT FAIR!!!!
Three Crooked Squirrels: Waxing_Chewbacca: Does anyone recall what is was just before the first debate?It peaked out at 86.1% on the forecast and 98.1% on the Nowcast.
simplicimus: Regardless of the attack on Nate Silver, I am astounded that Dick Morris has any credibility with anyone.

theinsultabot9000: not that I MrBallou: eraser8: MrBallou: On a slight tangent, it looks like Team Obama may have played it right in terms of letting Rmoney peak early.[i49.tinypic.com image 433x302] The reservoir tip broke and probably won't close up again.No.If Team Obama had played it right, they wouldn't have crashed and burned in the first presidential debate and the election would be OVER now.I wonder. If Rmoney had been the big underdog, his strategy would have been very different and there's no telling what would have happened. Voters are weird. At least the momentum is in the right direction right now, near the end.Let me preface the following with saying that I have no belief that Obama sleeping through the debate was some kind of long game, it was a disaster that caused severe damage to his presidential race, and even if he wins, will still have been the thing that damn near cost him the white house.now, having said that, lets say Obama makes his odds and wins, if that happens, that craptastic debate may have been the single best thing to happen to team Obama this cycle. Romney's cash reserves are huge right now, he is on track for an October worth almost 220 million and that has a LOT to do with the debate showing he had a shot. if he spends all that money and still looses, that's a fortune that might have propped up republicans in the house and senate they didn't get. I mean, they might get some up ticket, but still, I bet they probably would have preferred having those millions themselves. And that ignores all the superpacs that might have otherwise gone balls deep into the house and senate that started putting their money back into the presidential election.Think about the difference hundreds of millions going into the republican house and senate coffers for a moment, the house and senate landscape could look a lot different then dems picking up in the house and keeping the senate
