Rain Man Map Man

"you are the Rain Man of politics", says, Anderson Cooper to John King while discussing the dem primaries tonight on CNN.  All the while John King stands, totally concentrating on the dark blue areas that represent counties of Indiana and he is stretching, pulling, playing, twisting, and tweaking his. . . map.  No...you potty heads...this is not another name for pulling the pud.  One almost feels dizzy from the constant movement of the map.  We saw sparsely populated counties, we zoomed into suburban counties with snap together ranch style homes positioned near baseball fields and parking lots.  John put us into the living rooms of Lake county citizens.  all the while he has this dazed yet happy look on his face.  He has a tool people and he isn't afraid to use it!
