on an ezra klein article about his prediction. An undergrad from texas posted how all his friends voted for romney, and "so much for antidotal [sic] evidence".

I hope he doesn't post which school, I'd hate for their reputation to suffer.

Posting your school's name would have a similar effect.

Your OP assumes we know who Ezra Klein is; you do not fill out the prediction the comment references so the comment hangs there pointing to a null; and you fail to capitalize proper nouns.

1. Especially lulzworthy.

2. My OP assumes you know what google is, but it is irrelevant.

3. Given that the election is tomorrow and this is PandN, it should also be readily obvious (and yet still irrelevant)

4. This is a forum, not a dissertation (and another irrelevant point).

This is a bad thread, and you should feel bad for making it.
This.
The humor relies on the juxtaposition, yet when you repeated it you failed to give us the first element. So you gave us the punchline without the rest of the joke.

You're an idiot.
