Ha ha, that is not D.L. Hughley at all.Oh Nate Silver, how we long for your embrace! Spin us a tale of numbers and regressions, just like in the old days? Like that time you Internet-fought the Real Clear Politics guy when he wasn’t accurately weighing reputable polls… yes… just yes. Whoa what’s this, you’re writing a book. Two books! WANT. NOW. Please include sexy nude numbers pix. The numbers 5 and 8, 69ing. We don’t read for the words. [NY Observer]

  1. I gotta admit, that D.L. Hughley is doing some wack impersonations.

    It’s like he’s the thinking man’s Dave Chappelle…”I’m Nate Silver, bitch!”

  2. [re=176958]Gopherit[/re]:
    Do you imagine that Nate was the greatest mathlete ever when he was in high school? Like the Michael Jordan of mathletes?

  3. I was wondering what the hell is Jermaine from Flight of The Concords is doing on Wonkette.

    Good for Nate. There’s some hope for us maths and skienze guys to get some (assuming we can clean up a bit (okay, a lot) and go visit a fashion consultant.)

  4. Greetings, my friend. We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives. And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future. You are interested in the unknown… the mysterious. The unexplainable. That is why you are here.

  5. [re=176960]sanantonerose[/re]: There appears to be a disturbance among us. MUTINY IT SEEMS?
    The Bush years were better for this. It is so much easier to just expatriate someone and send their ass to Gitmo. What are we to do now? Do not fret, Texas rose.

  6. I saw him on Maddow last week. The man is a genius, but I’m surprised he was able to escape from being hung on his locker by his underwear to get out and make the talk show circuit. Should NOT interact directly with hu-mans.

  7. Nate is just selling out to the man. Oh for the day when math was free of the influence of the almighty dollar and poor but happy statisticians filled the tubes.

  8. I have no doubt that Nate is getting laid because of his math-induced celebrity. But I don’t understand the mechanics of it. I mean, where does one go to find math groupies? If you are an athlete or rapper, you go to the club or something. And are mathletes immune to swagger jacking?

  9. I have a friend who is a super smart math nerd, currently working for Google, and he opines that many of his colleagues have undiagnosed Asperger’s. Given Nate’s parents’ anecdote about him being a self-declared “numbers machine” counting into the thousands in preschool, I’d say probability is oh, about 97.3% that Nate is of similar ilk. Not that there’s anything wrong with that…

  10. I’m glad he’s writing books, because his TV presence sure sucks.

    Here’s a hint. When someone thanks you for being on their show, the correct response is not “yeah.” (He did this twice to Rachel Maddow, in the same segment.)

  11. The guy may have taught numbers how to fuck (as ontd_political will have me believe), but he is still an unrepentant nerd. Doesn’t mean I wouldn’t hit it, just means I’d be slightly ashamed about it afterwards.

  12. blackdontcrack: You don’t get it! It’s a FETISH. Like skinny, short white men who dig giant women of color, or people who have a thing for midgets. WE LOVES US SOME NERD ACTION.

    Rodney Badger: I met him on the casual encounters of Chicago Craigslist actually. If you take a look at his hands in this photo, you can tell why I am so madly in love.
