Nate Silver’s Tie

I don’t know if you saw this web extra, but Nate was on Rachel’s show and apparently he had to buy a tie at the last minute. Well the tie was so ugly that they had to remove it right before Nate was going live. Hilarity ensued. See video here:


In other news, I’d like to welcome Abigail Jean Pugh into the world. She is the daughter of my best friend and was born last night. I lobbied hard for the middle name of Lynn since Abby Lynn had a nice ring to it. But her Father’s middle name is Lynn, Her mother’s middle name is Lynn and her Grandmother’s middle name is Lynn so there was a preponderance of Lynn already in place. Jean is her Grandmother’s first name. So I guess that will do.

My friend is a little worried. He’s 47 and already has an adult child. This is a little late in the game for guys our age. He’s also a conservative. He worked with Sean Hannity back in the radio days. That we’ve remained friends is a testament to our mutual loyalty. Hopefully, I can get him to contribute an article or two to the website.

I just heard Abigail screaming over the phone. It was a lovely, musical sound. I can already tell she’s going to be a force to be dealt with. Welcome to the world, little one.

    I have been teaching human development the last few days and this sort of thing does nothing to diminish the sense of wonder and miracle I feel when I see a perfect human life emerge fully formed from the womb.

    Aw give Nate a break. Geeks generally do not know how to dress themselves. Networks have departments for that.

    Nicolle Wallace, former communication chief for Bush, was on Real Time w/Bill Maher and said, Obama’s approval ratings will go up 15 pts. in the first (6) months if Reps take over the House …Again, the yin and yang of politics.
