Stories to Watch: 10/14/10

Remember that guy Dick Cheney shot in the face? Yeah, his name's Harry Whittington and he says that Dick's never apologized for it. This strikes me as especially unfair, since Harry apologized to Dick for getting his face in the way of Dick's marksmanship. C'mon Cheney, can we get just a little class here?

Still, it's a good excuse to post this blast from the past:

Now here's the news...

Big debate in Nevada tonight pitting a crazy desert hobo against a dotty old majority leader. As they go into this, Sharron Angle and Harry Reid seem to be in a statistical dead heat. So, unlike most debates, this one could make a real difference. Here's hoping Angle shows up in fullblown crazy teabagger mode and scares the beejeezus out of undecided voters.

Bill O'Reilly pulls some bigoted anti-Muslim crap on The View. Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar walk off the set.

Today's completely insane polling result: 44% say Democrats are dominated by extremists, while 37% say the same of the GOP. Want an example of how badly the US media sucks? There you go.

The Justice Dept. has filed for a stay on the recent DADT ruling, pending an appeal. "Boneheaded and wrong" are the words you're looking for here. If there are extremists in the White House, they're wussypants extremists.

Republicans get a head start on impeaching Obama.

Could African-American voters pull Democrats' fat out of the fire?

Covering (almost) all the bases: a billboard in Colorado portrays Barack Obama as a gay terrorist mafioso Mexican bandit. They forgot the antichrist, but I suppose there was only so much room.

An "industrywide scheme designed to defraud homeowners" through foreclosure.

Finally, yet another poll shows that the punditry is wrong and voters give a crap about anonymous business groups funding attack ads. 84% -- including 80% of Republicans -- say "voters have a right to know who is paying for ads for a particular candidate." Not a preference, but a right. Republicans may be worried.
