My new phantom husband, Nate Silver, was on the Colbert Report last night. He says he wore the purple tie to be politically neutral but really it was his coded way of saying how much he loves me, since purple is my favourite color. It was like Carol Burnett's ear tug to say hi to her mom or whatnot. He's so adorable. All shifty and nervous but still manages to be funny and smart...Hmm...Ah love.
