Stories to Watch: 9/17/10

It's Constitution Day! Hey Teabaggers, why don't you bother to read it for once? Now here's the news...

Primaried-out Alaska Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski announces that she'll run a write-in campaign. Democrats are exceedingly pleased... Until they check out FiveThirtyEight.
