Kevin Drum, Leaning Quasi-Correctly

November 14, 2008

It’s a mixed bag, correctness-wise, in this post:

ONE MORE FOR THE DEMS….It looks like Mark Begich is going to beat Ted Stevens in the Alaska senatorial race after all. Which begs the question: Is there anything that Nate Silver isn’t right about?

Yes, Kevin, Nate Silver is on top of his game, provided the game we are talking about is statistical analysis, and not appearing on TV without looking like a guy who spends way too much doing statistical analysis.

But no, Kevin, that is not what ‘begs the question’ means.
