Eightieth Percentile

Remember how proud of your kid you were when he/she hit the "80th-percentile?"  

Nate Silver, prognosticator of the stars [of some renown] -- loathed by paycheck-cashing-news-media-idiots-everywhere -- has bumped Barack Obama's chances of winning re-election to over 80%.  

You know, World News Tonight and The Nightly News and FOX and those overpaid political reporters at the Washington Post and the New York Times and who knows where else, may want you to think this is a horse-race but, even supposing they are right, our horse is ahead by two lengths with two lengths to go.  

Citizens: This race is over.

Now get out there and VOTE!
