And finally, an article about kneejerk, childish reactions to the election wouldn't be complete without mentioning the latest gibberish from Dean Chambers, the founder of Unskewed Polls. Immediately after the election, Chambers blamed me for his homophobic rant against Nate Silver. Yes, really. He blamed me. You know, because Republicans are all about personal responsibility. Evidently, Chambers objected to an article in which I described him as "portly" in an attempt to visually and professionally contrast him with Silver. Chambers is the "Bizarro Nate Silver," I wrote. The exact opposite of Silver in every way, including the fact that Silver is "thin" while Chambers is "portly." So naturally Chambers lashed out against... Silver. Odd.

But that's not the worst of it. Chambers launched a new site called "Barack O'Fraudo." I'm not making that up. Barack O'Fraudo. First of all, what's the deal with the name? Chambers seems to have combined the president's first name with an Irish version of the word "fraud" and tossed in a random "o" at the end -- the president's actual last name ends with an "a."

The mission, as I predicted weeks ago, is to unskew the results of the election by smoking out cases of voter fraud orchestrated by Obama campaign. Chambers is back to doing what he does best: drawing wild conclusions from numbers he doesn't fully understand. He's pinpointed cases of alleged fraud in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Florida, and has therefore stripped 80 electoral votes away from the president. But, strangely, he doesn't give those electoral votes to Romney -- yet.

Four years ago, when the president won the first time, fringy Republicans merely threatened to "Go Galt," in reference to the John Galt character in Atlas Shrugged who accumulates a group of wealthy disciples to stop contributing to the economy, thus bringing it to its knees. This time around it seems as if this conservative whiny freak-out is a futile extension of that initial effort. It won't work and, in the final analysis, it will only serve to further embarrass and discredit a conservative movement that's already in serious trouble. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
