- But I'm guessing the empty chair debacle got the most press:
You want a lock to win a barroom bet with your friends?
Bet them which speaker at the recent Republican and Democratic conventions drew the biggest audience. [...]
It was Joe Biden.
- And in other convention news, the brain trust behind the above mentioned chair debacle received bonuses from team Romney for their many failures:
At the same time, the campaign gave out about $200,000 in bonuses to senior employees just after the Republican National Convention, which ended with the candidate not getting much of a bounce in the polls.
- Comedy gold:

- They're kind of mean in Utah:
Senator Orrin Hatch’s Democratic opponent in his Senate race appears to have found a new messaging plan: focus on Hatch’s age.
On Sunday, Democrat Scott Howell, a Utah state senator, sent out a fundraising letter saying that Hatch “could die before his term was through.” Now, Howell is taking things a step further and calling on Hatch to release five years of medical records. [...]
Howell’s request came in response to criticism from another senior Republican figure in Utah, former senator Bob Bennett. In an interview with the Salt Lake City Tribune, Bennett, 79, said “Scott Howell may die before his term is up…Who knows.”
- Go figure:
Americans' distrust in the media hit a new high this year, with 60% saying they have little or no trust in the mass media to report the news fully, accurately, and fairly. Distrust is up from the past few years, when Americans were already more negative about the media than they had been in years prior to 2004.
- Be careful who you give to.
- Today's Kagro in the Morning show reviewed coverage from the Senate debates in MA & VA, and talked polling & punditry trends with Greg Dworkin. From there, it's another extended connect-the-dots session pulling in the "fiscal cliff," the old "Super Committee," Blue Dogs and their dwindling influence, the stimulus plan vote, and Kent Conrad's commitment to the Zombie Simpson-Bowles "report." Whew!
