After this weeks election Nate Silver has become our favorite self-described gay geek and political  math nerd stud.

Nate, the founder of FiveThirtyEight, which is now part of the New York Times. correctly predicted the popular vote in 2008 within one percentage point, correctly predicted the outcome in 49 out of 50 states (except Indiana) and this year Grand Slammed it with a 100% correct prediction.

Richard Lawson wrote in an Out essay that Silver “sets many gay (and straight, probably) hearts aflutter with his eerie prescience and rumpled-yet-sharp geeky aesthetic.”

And he does.  And his intellegence and wit is also a huge geeky turn on.

ALL HAIL NATE SILVER!  The gay geek who made math sexy again!

He can crunch our numbers anyday.
