The Corner

The one and only.

Stay At It, Dan Hodges!

My homage to Dan Hodges, the Daily Telegraph’s Blairite blogger, for his dashingly reckless claims that Obama had already won the election, may have to be re-considered. Today Hodges has a blog post on the mathematical beauty of the U.S. electoral college that, in addition to being pretty interesting, seems to concede implicitly that Romney might have a chance, albeit a slim one, of passing the post first. I was saddened to read this. I pray he’s not losing his brio. So I make this appeal:

Don’t do it, Dan. Don’t join the massed ranks of desiccated calculating machines, of green-eye-shaded statisticians with liquid nitrogen in our veins. Keep swashing your buckle. Stay Cavalier!
