FiveThirtyEight blogger, modern-day Nostradamus and possible "witch," Nate Silver, had political pundits up in arms last week at his very favorable view of President Barack Obama's Election Day chances. Now that Silver's near-perfect predictions have been validated -- he correctly called all 50 states -- the numbers wizard is enjoying unprecedented adulation, garnering titles like "The David Blaine of Political Science" and "Lord and god of the algorithm." It finally came to a head on Thursday when America's biggest math-geek-turned-rock-star earned himself a Twitter meme, "Drunk Nate Silver." Because what's more hilarious than a drunk statistician? Nothing.
