The CNN lines are going heavily for PBO.

Rmoney has been close to flat as he parrots our President. PBO is also doing especially well with women.

Is that the tenor section of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir over on the side?

Who are those glum white men and why are there no women in that group?

CNN is doing fact checking!

And they're doing it straight. They actually may be less depressing than MSNBC. I think I'll try it for a bit and see if it continues.

OMFG!! The stage is an almost exact copy of an Aztec step pyramid.

It just hit me when the cameras pulled back to a wide shot of the whole edifice. They've either rolled in a new step pyramidal rostrum in front of the main stage for the high priest's speech or that view hasn't been shown before (that I've noticed.) Did anybody else notice this or am I losing it?

Must see! Fantastic adaptation of Les Miz theme

Cross-posted from Video and Multimedia forum because it's too good to miss!

Please watch this. It's SO great and not from the campaign -- but driven by the fantastic talent. There's also a captioned/subtitled version at http://www.onetermmore.com/video_subtitles.html that explains why the video was produced and more. It's vimeo, though, and I don't know how to post that here.

Is anybody watching Frank Luntz "special" on Faux?

I can't deal with him now but if anybody has the stomach to watch and report back, DUers should (I hope) find out what he's up to. This could be one of his focus groups where he tests the memes that move Indies thoughts about Obama.

omg! rMoney's doing a presser! nt

WTF??? Did anyone else notice on Mrs Greenspan's show?

She had Douglas Holtz Eakins and Ron somebody discussing the ACA decision tomorrow. Eakins said "people are angry about losing their private HC if SCOTUS lets the bill stand. "Ron" the Dem policy guy didn't correct him and nor did Mrs G. He just answered the next question. Then, Eakins repeated this lie in his next talking point. And again there was no rebuttal.

Study reveals psychopaths have significant differences in brain structure -- grey matter.

http://www.abc.net.au/worldtoday/content/2012/s3498036.htm?site=perth

Scientists at King's College London scanned the brains of 66 prisoners who had been diagnosed as psychopaths, and found significantly less. grey matter than normal in major areas of their brains.


MEREDITH GRIFFITHS: So this work that's just been published how significant do you think it is that the people who had the antisocial personality disorderliness and psychopathy, that their brains actually had less grey matter in certain areas than the other men that were studied? How significant is it to actually have less grey matter in a part or parts of your brain?

ADRIAN KELLER: The significance is that the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain are critical for the development of judgement and moral reasoning and our capacity to understand the emotional experiences of other people. Therefore you might expect that a reduced grey matter in these areas could reflect a reduced capacity to develop these critical emotional skills.
...

It's certainly very powerful evidence that psychopathy is distinct from the more poorly defined anti-social personality disorder, as a more discreet clinical entity. And I think that tallies with clinical experience that the psychopathy construct is a better defined construct, it's more useful clinically, and therefore can be identified biologically in a way that anti-social personality disorder as a more global, perhaps more amorphous clinical entity cannot be defined.
