Obama Taunts Cuccinelli on Mann and Climate

President Obama, campaigning in Virginia for Terry McAuliffe, gives a shout out to Michael Mann:
"It doesn't create jobs when you go after scientists, and you try to offer your own alternative theories of how things work -- (laughter) -- and engage in litigation around stuff that isn't political.  It has to do with what's true.  It has to do with facts.  You don't argue with facts.  (Applause.)"
The race has tightened a little in recent days (ruining the hockey stick), but it still looks like McAuliffe is going to win easily. A few points of that win may well be due to Cuccinelli's campaign against Mann and climate science, which is a win (for both) no matter how you look at it.
