This Nate Silver post eviscerating John Lott is pretty damned funny:
This possibility appears not to have crossed Lott’s mind. Faced with two alternatives…
1. The Canvassing Board somehow determined that this was a Franken ballot;
2. The Star Tribune screwed up.
…Lott took Occam’s Razor and cut himself with it, and concluded that the former must be true, using it as his primary piece of evidence to allege the recount was slanted in Al Franken’s favor.
LIEBERAL MEDIA! Presumably, this is the same John Lott who is responsible for all the gun research we hear quoted all the time in NRO and elsewhere.
