The Humorous Downfall Of Nate Silver: Booze, Drugs And Fame (NSFW VIDEO)

Author: November 9, 2012 1:53 pm

If you don’t know the name Nate Silver by now, you either live under a rock or watch Fox News almost exclusively. Attacked from both the left and the right (but mostly the right), Silver didn’t just call the results of the election, he nailed it like an underage intern on a GOP jaunt to Thailand.

This year, when people thought, “Ohio Predictive Analytical Models,” they thought, “Nate Fucking Silver.”

From Joe Scarborough making an ass of himself on MSNBC and Twitter by declaring Silver an “ideologue” and then backing down in the face of a friendly wager, to Dean Chambers, the clown who “unskewed the polls” and insisted that Silver was wrong (and possibly gay), pundits all over the country fell before Silver’s prowess.


But fame and power come with a price. Silver is now a celebrity on the Lohan Curve. In no time at all, he will be in and out of rehab and is a shoe-in for a guest spot on “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” One does not simply party with Chris Hayes and walk away unscathed. One does not simply have a bar stocked by Rachel Maddow and not require a liver transplant. See how fame can destroy a man like an imaginary number can destroy a sixth grade quadratic equation:
