Nate Silver was the latest guest on "Serious Jibber-Jabber," Conan O'Brien's chat show that turns the comedian into a Charlie Rose-like inquisitor. And if anyone doubted the unorthodox nature of Silver's punditry, he wore a Cookie Monster shirt throughout the whole thing.

Silver, whose fame reached new heights after he accurately predicted how the 2012 election would out on his FiveThirtyEight blog, has a 50-minute chat with O'Brien, a civics and history buff in his private life. The two men discuss at length polling's role in this election, and the various X factors that can't be predicted that will provide for exciting election nights in the future.

Check out the video above for some good, long weekend watching.
