I was wondering if there is such a thing as attention addiction. I don't mean attention deficit disorder, I mean grown adults who crave attention and are addicted to getting positive or negative attention (like drama). Is there a true disorder where a supposedly mature adult can be addicted to drama and attention from other people to the point of doing weird behavioral things to get attention? And, if theres a disorder, what are the signs and symptoms? Is a diagnosis required for the individual to attend therapy to help him/her stop?
attention-seeking suggests that people with dramatic, emotional, or erratic behavior and thoughts that interfere markedly with day-to-day functioning might be suffering from a personality disorder.
To be more specific, someone who seems to crave and create drama and attention might be experiencing symptoms of histrionic personality disorder (HPD). Only mental health professionals can diagnose this when there is clear evidence that five of the following symptoms occur in various contexts and seem to have begun in early adulthood:
experiences discomfort when not the center of attention
often interacts in inappropriately sexual or seductive way
displays shallow and rapidly shifting emotions
places extreme value on personal appearance and uses appearance to draw attention to self
speaks with little detail while conveying vague ideas
displays dramatic and theatrical expression of emotion
Is easily influenced by others and seems suggestible
thinks interpersonal relationships are more intimate than they really are

Rand Paul is sinking fast but hopes we wont notice
Attacked for plagiarism, he takes his column to the Breitbart fringe and pummels Chris Christie as a distraction
If youre wondering why Sen. Rand Paul is doing Democrats dirty work for them, attacking Gov. Chris Christies self-promoting $25 million post-Sandy advertising campaign, its simple. Hes hoping he can get reporters to cover the intra-party feud as an early sign of GOP titans warming up for 2016, so they stop Googling his old speeches and columns and books for more evidence of plagiarism.
Paul flatters himself. Hes no longer Christies peer in the top tier of likely 2016 candidates.
Not only has he faced at least four separate charges of plagiarism in eight short days, hes shown himself incapable of mounting a serious presidential candidacy with his whiny, entitled, self-righteous response.
First he bizarrely suggested he would like to challenge his critics to a duel. Then he told the New York Times hell start footnoting and fact-checking if it will make people leave me the hell alone. What a baby. Eventually hell get what he wants, and hell be left alone when it comes to 2016 coverage. This man would never survive the rigors of a national campaign.
The best evidence of Pauls stature-slide is his new home as a writer. After he was terminated by the Washington Times after multiple examples of plagiarism unearthed by Rachel Maddow, BuzzFeed and Politico, Paul was picked up by that bastion of journalism ethics and achievement, Breitbart.com , which of course peddled the phony Shirley Sherrod is a racist story as well as the hoax that former Sen. Chuck Hagel had been paid by a nonexistent group called Friends of Hamas.
We are pleased to add Senator Paul to our lineup of fearless, original thought leaders, Breitbart CEO Larry Sokolov said in a statement, indicating hes as unfamiliar with the concept of original as Paul seems to be about the meaning of plagiarism.
It remains unclear if Paul is truly dumb or just incredibly brazen when he denies to this day that he ever plagiarized anyone. He insists that by crediting the source of the original works hes describing whether the movies Gattaca and Stand and Deliver, or think tank reports he is inoculated from criticism for stealing the words of other people who summarized those works so he or his speechwriters didnt have to.
Still, with his stubborn defensiveness, Paul also shows his contempt for both the written word and ideas themselves. He told the New York Times that he was maybe a little sloppy with footnotes because of the crushing workload of a busy freshman senator. Obviously hes too busy and important doing real stuff to worry about the writing of his speeches, books or opinion pieces, and all the ink-stained wretches who care are just haters.
Paul displays contempt for normal standards of truth and fairness in other ways. Jill Lawrence examined the record last month in a piece headlined The Truthiness of Rand Paul. Lawrence recounted an episode that got relatively little attention maybe because it was followed so quickly by the plagiarism scandal in which Paul told a group of medical school students at his alma mater that he never cheated on tests, but he did spread misinformation to other students designed to make them study the wrong topics and thus do poorly. Heres what he said when asked if he had any advice about handling exams.
Actually, I do, said the ophthalmologist-turned-senator , who stays sharp (and keeps his license) by doing pro bono eye surgeries during congressional breaks.I never, ever cheated. I dont condone cheating. But I would sometimes spread misinformation. This is a great tactic. Misinformation can be very important.
RIP TEABAGGER GOP CONS
#133597 Nov 8, 2013
He went on to describe studying for a pathology test with friends in the library.We spread the rumor that we knew what was on the test and it was definitely going to be all about the liver, he said.We tried to trick all of our competing students into over-studying for the liver and not studying much else.
So, thats my advice, he concluded.Misinformation works.
Misinformation works. Lawrence went on to outline the half-truths, cherry-picked factoids, and outright errors that Paul seems steadfastly unwilling to relinquish. And that was before the documented cases of plagiarism.
Called on his truthiness, Paul responds not by taking responsibility but by attacking his critics. The pampered son of former Rep. Ron Paul gave the New York Times the rejoinder of spoiled kids everywhere: If the haters keep it up, hell just take his ball and go home.To tell you the truth, people can think what they want, I can go back to being a doctor anytime, if theyre tired of me. Ill go back to being a doctor, and Ill be perfectly content.
Thats another lie. The preening junior senator wouldnt be content just being a doctor anymore.
So now hes attacking Christie, one of the top-tier 2016 candidates, hoping he can jump in that ring and leave his troubles behind. But Pauls plagiarism scuffles, and even worse, his response to them, will consign him to the fringe. What the folks at Breitbart are to actual journalists, Paul is becoming to actual 2016 candidates. Christie will ignore him, and so, soon, will most other people.
hahaha, old GRANDrand is sinking fast. haha

Rachel Maddow: Rand Paul melting down
Rachel Maddow says Sen. Rand Paul is melting down in the face of plagiarism accusations against him.
The MSNBC host, who was the first to report on instances of plagiarism in Pauls speeches last week before multiple media outlets uncovered other examples, read on her show Wednesday night scathing editorials criticizing the Kentucky Republican in his home-state newspapers.
The terrible hometown press that Rand Paul is getting right now might explain why the senator is melting down over this issue, Maddow said.Now hes come to the point where he is threatening to quit and leave politics altogether unless people stop criticizing him over his plagiarism problems and reporting on them.
Maddow read from interviews that Paul gave to The New York Times (which she called exasperated, emotional, sweary) and National Review, in which he discussed going back to being a doctor if necessary and asked if he would have to be in detention for the rest of his career.
One thing that is maybe under-appreciated about this stressful episode for Sen. Paul is that it is happening for him at a key time in his career,
Maddow said, mentioning POLITICOs report that Paul met with News Corp Chairman Rupert Murdoch and Fox News chief Roger Ailes.Obviously two of the kingmakers you need on your side if youre a Republican running for president. This is the time when these guys are trying to establish themselves as viable candidates.
But in the face of that pressure, Maddow said, the possible 2016 presidential candidate is cracking.
Paul is all but breaking down in these interviews, Maddow said.Not only can he apparently not handle the rigors of the difficult workload of being a freshman senator, which was his excuse for plagiarizing an article for an op-ed, not only can he not handle the workload of being a senator, he apparently cant handle criticism of things hes has done wrong. If this is the way he handles pressure, that is probably a good thing to know about him now.
Pauls office has admitted some material in the senators speeches and writing wasnt properly vetted and has pledged a new process moving forward. He has also slammed the accusations as politically motivated and the footnote police.

GOP seeks to tamp down tea party clout
Senate Republicans are spoiling for a fight this primary season as they try to take back control of the party from conservative activists.
The strategy: prop up the most electable candidates even if they are more moderate than ones demanded by tea party activists and punish those who get in their way.
After witnessing the business community help save the candidacy of Bradley Byrne, an establishment-backed candidate in a GOP runoff Tuesday for a House seat in Alabama, Republican senators are calling for the same type of support from well-funded GOP groups in Senate primaries next year.
If you have an unlevel playing field, then you get predictable results, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who faces a primary challenge next year, said Wednesday.The people who want to support a more traditional, Ronald Reagan-like Republican also need to get in the game.
The fight between the establishment and the tea party has been brewing since 2010, but it has taken on new urgency in the aftermath of the Tuesday elections and as the midterm elections draw near. Many congressional Republicans were quick to argue that the 2013 elections bolster the case theyve been making for the past three years: Candidates matter.
Gov. Chris Christie romped to reelection in New Jersey by positioning himself as a deal-cutting pragmatic Republican who did not adhere to strict conservative orthodoxy. But to his south, Ken Cuccinelli lost his bid for the Virginia governors mansion in part because Democrats seized on his hard-line conservative credentials.
And even further south in Alabama, Byrne beat back Dean Young, a staunch conservative who likened himself to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.
Republicans said they must replicate the tactics by choosing the best candidates in 2014 regardless of the demands of tea party-aligned groups.
If super PACs are going to get involved in primaries, there has to be some other people involved in primaries who are interested in actually winning the election in November and not just purifying the party in the primary, said Texas Sen. John Cornyn, who ran the National Republican Senatorial Committee in the past two cycles and faces reelection next year.
With the blessing of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, the hardball plan is already beginning to take shape. Senior Republican officials are privately warning GOP consultants and firms who continue to work with one of their main foes the Senate Conservatives Fund and another GOP ad firm that they wont get contracts from the NRSC. Theyll also be frozen out of McConnells network if they remain hired by their right-wing rival.

Look at old turtleman straddling the fence, begging for teabagger support one minute and hoping to destroy them the next. It is fun to see who they will eat next. Either way, they still won't be able to buy an election. They will never get the women, blacks, Hispanic, LGBT, youth's vote. They can't help themselves every single day not to offend any of the voters they need to win. There aren't enough OLD WHITE MEN to get them elected. hahaha bye, bye teabaggers

Anti-gay bigots are getting their clocks cleaned
Today's vote on LGBT workplace protections showed Democrats using it as a wedge issue. And the right hiding in fear
By their actions today, Democrats and Republicans both made clear that they agree on something significant: Gay rights are currently a winning issue for Democrats and a losing one for the GOP.
So winning, in fact, that as the Senate approached a Thursday vote on workplace protections for gay and transgender workers, Majority Leader Harry Reid asserted that the GOP-controlled House of Representatives was going to have to capitulate, if they have any hope of nominating a viable candidate for president or want to hang onto the House.
Apparently, the GOP firebrands agree. When it came time for Senate Republicans to voice their objections to the bill before the procedural vote Monday: crickets. No Green Eggs and Ham from Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas. No showboating by the usual suspects. None of them wanted to take the floor against an anti-discrimination law that nearly 70 percent of Americans support and 90 percent believe already exists.
On the House side, an aide for Speaker John Boehner strenuously objected when the Huffington Post reported Monday that Boehners stated opposition to the Employment Nondiscrimination Act (ENDA) dealt a blow to the bills chances of reaching the presidents desk.
We have always believed this is covered by existing law, the aide told Huffington Post, refuting the notion that Boehners position strayed from anything he had said in the past.Its a longstanding position, and, frankly, not news at all.
Now thats an aide who doesnt want headlines. And he doesnt want headlines because he doesnt want attention brought to the fact that Speaker Boehner now stands in the way of passing the legislation.
Why so scared?
Partly because the bills got so much popular support that, following the government shutdown, Boehners desperate to avoid whipping up another wave of public pressure.
And partly because Washington has finally caught on to the fact that being pro-LGBT isnt just about winning over gay voters and donors, its about winning the youth vote. Simply put: supporting equality for LGBT Americans has now become a basic question of modernity a litmus test of sorts for millennial voters.
Even New York Sen. Chuck Schumer who declined to include same-sex couples in immigration reform earlier this year for fear that they would tank the bill was bullish on the optics of the employment nondiscrimination bill.
The times they are a-changing, Schumer told Politico, earlier this week.If you want to alienate young voters, opposing this is a good way to do it. And they know that.
And Democrats werent about to let Boehner off the hook as they addressed reporters Thursday just before the final vote on ENDA, which sailed through 64-32.
Sen. Tom Harkin of Iowa called on Boehner to bring the bill to the floor, saying,Im convinced, if the House votes on this, it will pass the House and go to the president for his signature.
An impassioned Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois said it was unconscionable that when given an opportunity to right one of these last remaining civil rights issues of our time, Speaker Boehner and those who follow his lead in the House of Representatives are turning their backs.
Schumer piled on:Everyone talks about gridlock in Washington, it rests with one man: Speaker Boehner.
Yes, gay rights have officially become a wedge issue that Democrats leverage against Republicans.
Racist and bigots = GOP/Teabaggers

Despite the GOPs Best Efforts, Poll Shows Approval Rating for Obamacare Rising
In a bit of good news for the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) a recent poll done by Reuters/Ipsos showed that interest and favorability from the uninsured rose fairly significantly despite all the issues HealthCare.gov has experienced since it launched.
According to the poll, 44 percent of the uninsured view the law favorably, up from 37 percent in September. Even the numbers of those who oppose the law have improved, dropping from 63 percent in September to 56 percent now.
This is just one poll, but it also goes along with a belief Ive had for a while about the law. That is, the issues going on have been completely overblown. Yes, the website itself has been a disaster and every bit the embarrassment its been made out to be. But aside from that, people often resist changeespecially when that change has a rocky start. Yet what happens frequently with change? The more people get to actually know about it and see benefits, the more they tend to like it.
Even many Americans who are losing their current health insurance and were originally upset, are finding that their new plans will offer much better health coverage. Even if, for some, it comes at a slightly higher price.
Also, according to the poll, approval of the law by the general public rose from 44 percent to 47 percent.
A fact Americans need to understand and it seems the media fails to mention is that Obamacare impacts a very low percentage of overall Americans. Even after all the right-wing doom and gloom over the millions of Americans who arent going to be able to keep their current insurance, the numbers come out to around 5 percent of Americans with health insurance being forced to change plans.
For the vast majority of Americans,Obamacare wont have any impact on their lives. They already had health insurance and their insurance already covered what Obamacare requires.
So, once HealthCare.gov is up and fixed (which it will be soon) what are Republicans going to have? The answer is, not much. Like with most big changes, people adapt, realize their fears werent warranted and often the change is embraced by many who once opposed it.
I fully believe that is what well see with Obamacare. Sure, there will always be Americans who are negatively impacted by the law. There will always be individuals Republicans can put on Fox News to tell the country their horror stories of paying more or whatever issues theyre having.
But I firmly believe once everything settles down and people let the law work (after the site is fixed, of course), this uproar were currently seeing will recede back to mostly the far-right reaches of the Republican party, where its been since before the law was even passed.
Which is something I believe this recent poll by Reuters is actually showing us.
By NOV 2014, it will be a success and CONS will suffer again at the polls for all their lies, gloom and doom. Watch for it.

George W. Bush Fundraising for Group that Seeks to Save Jews for Second Coming of Christ
When I first read this story, I had to look over it twice just to understand what I had just read. The story of which I am speaking, first reported by Mother Jones, shares the news that former President George W. Bush will be a keynote speaker at a fundraising event for the Messianic Jewish Bible Institute.
Now, why is this a story? Because the Messianic Jewish Bible Institute is a group that seeks to restore Israel and Jewish peopleoh, and bring about the second coming of Jesus Christ.
To show just how radical of a group this is, their big keynote speaker last year was none other than Glenn Beck. That tells you the kind of people they attract and what sort of radical message theyre spreading.
According to the Messianic Jewish Bible Institutes website, their mission is to,Educate Christians in their role to provoke the Jewish people to jealousy and thus save some of them.
When hearing of the news that Bush would be speaking at a fundraising event for this group, Mother Jones reported that Rabbi David Saperstein, the director of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, said,Its disappointing that he would give his stamp of approval to a group whose program is an express effort to convert Jews and not to accept the validity of the Jewish covenant.
Now mind you, its one thing for someone like Glenn Beck or Rick Santorum (someone who has also spoken for groups such as these) to give these types of fundraising speeches for a group so radicalbut a former United States President?
Bush was just president a handful of years ago and now hes speaking to a group thats a borderline cult (if its not an outright one), with a goal to discredit the Jewish religion in an effort to convert them for salvation in anticipation of the second coming of Jesus Christ.
A group that most all credible Jewish organizations condemn.
Just let that sink in for a moment.
Oh, and when Beck spoke there, he was apparently introduced as a prophetyes, that happened.
Then one of their board members claims that the reason why money is so important to their cause is so that they can properly convert enough Jews to believe that Jesus Christ is their savior. Why is that so important one might wonder? Well, thats the best part. Because when there are enough Jewish people that believe in Jesus Christ, this board member claims,some sort of a trigger will go off in heaven, and our father in heaven will say,Okay, son, its time to get your bride.
Yeah, those are comments from a board member for this group. A group which is hosting a fundraiser to raise money for this cause that former President Bush will be speaking at.
What the hell is wrong with these people? Why do they feel the need to try to force their warped religious views on others?
But like I said, its one thing when someone like the prophet Glenn Beck speaks at one of these events. Hes nothing more than some sensationalized right-wing clown whos out to make money profiting off the ignorance of people who are gullible enough to believe this kind of nonsense. However, for a man who was President of the United States just 5 years agoits pathetic and downright embarrassing.
Just when I thought I couldnt be any more embarrassed that George W. Bush was actually our president, I guess he felt the need to prove me wrong.
PRICELESS....he should stick with painting pictures of dogs and enjoying his retirement on the ranch. It is downright embarrassing. You can see idiots like beck doing this but an ex-President?
