Makes you think.

As we continue to hurtle toward an election that could tear a hole in the fabric of political space-time as we know it, everyone is crunching the numbers and trying to predict exactly how it might go down. Or, in the case of data wonk Nate Silver, what would happen in purely hypothetical cases.

OK, well, sure, technically, but that doesn’t have any bearing on—

Very cute, although we should be focusing on—

Oh come on.

I just… help…

No more. Please, no more.
