Number 285, Why We Love Nate Silver

Nate_Silver_art_160_20080602070623.jpg
Wicked smart numbers dude Nate Silver interviewed our local ex-KFI blowhard John Ziegler about his new project…something about how everyone is wrong but him and people who agree with him.

Anyway, the whole interview is worth a read but here’s our favorite:

NS: Well, since you’re running a website calling people misinformed, I’d like to see if – there are certain things you’ve said that I would consider misinformed.

JZ: Misinformed? You’re a piece of work! You are never going to have the guts to post a representative transcript on your website! I thought you actually ran a legitimate website!

NS: Thank you, have a good day.

JZ: Go fuck yourself.
