Nate Silver Gets His Own Memes

For your dose of Friday journo-geek fun, we have Nate Silver and more Nate Silver.

If you’ve been living under a rock, you may have missed that The New York Times’ blogger and statistician Nate Silver accurately predicted the outcome of the election in all 50 states through impeccable data analysis.
