    Brett Favre for President

    http://www.fannation.com/si_blogs/fo...oter-wanted-it

    Stat junkies know Nate Silver as the guy who invented and popularized PECOTA, a system for forecasting the performance of Major League Baseball players. But over the past year, the native Chicagoan expanded his cottage prognostication industry to the political realm with FiveThirtyEight.com, a blog which uses PECOTA-like methods for predicting election results.

    Silver's latest post is related to the ongoing Al Franken-Norm Coleman recount in Minnesota's U.S. Senate election.

    It seems somebody wrote in a vote for Brett Favre for president.

    "Yesterday, the Franken campaign challenged this ballot, claiming that 'Brett Favre' was an identifying mark," Silver writes. "The Canvassing Board rejected the challenge and awarded the vote to Coleman."

    Score one for the Republicans.
