Stories to Watch: 12/22/10

Pre-holiday week is rolling right along. Is it Wednesday already? Why, yes it is. Get crackin' on those Christmas cookies, buddy, or you're going to be out of time in a hurry. Now here's the news...

Every returning Democratic Senator supports filibuster reform. Way to get right on that while it matters, people.

Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Asshole) has a very bad and embarrassing day. He makes a few fake -- but face-saving -- concessions and finally caves on blocking the 9/11 first responders' bill, which then passes unanimously.

A Christian News Service reporter makes the mistake of believing he's smarter than Barney Frank. It doesn't go well.

Further proof that Democrats should've been this badass all along: 56% approve of the lame duck session of Congress, 44% approve of Republicans.

Mike Huckabee calls out Sarah Palin on her pointless Michelle Obama bashing. Countless wingnut heads explode.

If you're still hoping Joe Miller will be the next senator from Alaska, then this will come as terrible news.

Banks begin to branch out into other industries -- like burglary.

Finally, Fox & Friends once again proves my motto for them; "Such amazing bullshit that you wish there were a stronger word for bullshit." During an interview with Holocaust survivor and human rights advocate Elie Weisel, F&F puts "ELIE WEISEL: HOLOCAUST WINNER" on the chyron underneath him. Guess he got the lucky scratch-off.
