It really is fortunate that he's always on the side of angels because even Nate Silver can be a stupid fucking moron.
For example Mr. 538 - remember Question 3 of 20?
3. Where is the evidence that the plan, as constructed, would substantially increase insurance industry profit margins, particularly when it is funded in part via a tax on insurers?
I checked in with a source that is really very good at reading the tea leaves.
As of 11 AM Eastern time, stocks for the six largest publicly-traded health insurance companies have risen by an average 4.49 percent, as weighted by their market capitalization.
Stock prices? What's that got to do with a Senate bill designed to optimized Health Insurance gouging?
Favorable developments for health care reform have been met with decreases in the prices of these stocks, and unfavorable developments with improved valuations.
Normally at this point I'd go into your rationalizations as to why this doesn't mean the Senate bill shouldn't have two or three shit sandwiches added to its score but I wouldn't want to accuse you of picking and choosing evidence and spinning it to support your arguments. After all when you make mistakes, "they're honest ones" and it's just anybody who disagrees with you that's being a dishonest hack.
P.S. FUCK YOU NATE SILVER.
