5. Republicans who suddenly have to force themselves to embrace the predictions of Nate Silver. Nate Silver's Five Thirty-Eight  website, which predicted the 2012 election without getting a single state wrong, just announced his prediction that the GOP is likely to retake the Senate in 2014. In the long leadup to 2012, Silver consistently predicted an Obama reelection, and pundits on the right consistently called him a charlatan who was manipulating stats to match his own leanings. Those same pundits will most likely be going on TV tonight, forcing themselves to tout Silver's genius and pretend they were always big fans. Just not of his "early stuff." (BP)
