On my great steed Sabermetric, I venture forth to distant shores. From the innumerate roar of stadiums shall the Signal be found once more.

I grasp from the beak of a silver dove a laurel wreath of finely-wrought permutations. The Signal has come at last.

Molten variables hiss and roar. On my mind-forge, I hammer them into the greatsword Epistemology. Many are my foes this night.

The Forecast and the Nowcast meet. I glimpse boundless realms in their penumbra. Meta-Romney holds a strong lead in the infrared states.

The Noise circles my camp - teeth bared, haunches raised. I toss the final Gallup poll onto the fire. Dawn approaches.

Florida is now our last toss-up state. I shall not rest until its dead-alive citizens are freed from their quantum hell.

Interview your nearest tree. Extrapolate the forest's views on Afghanistan from the answers you receive.

A pundit asks me for the state of the race. I chant Bayes' theorem until his writings crumble into dust. The Noise fades - for now.

A man boasts to me of Momentum, his greatest invention. "To victory," he cries, taking flight. I light a candle from the wax of his wings.
