All statistical models are approximations and are subject failure when stressed in unexpected ways.
 
What I got from this blog was that while Colby Cosh agrees with most of what Nate Silver has said, Nate has been wrong in the past so no one should listen to him now. This sounds petty and envious. Now I am no Nate Silver acolyte, but anyone who shuts up the idiotic pundits is okay with me; however, if you think that Nate Silver, or anyone else for that matter, is a modern day Cassandra, then you need to go back to astrology or phrenology lest you become like those who spent over $300 million on the last Cassandra, Karl Rove.
