Stories to Watch: 11/18/11

Since I started beta testing Firefox 4, I decided to revisit Google Chrome. Chrome's a lot less memory intensive, but I'm not as big a fan of the extensions. I'm writing this with Chrome's version of Scribefire and, I've got to say, it doesn't measure up. Still, it's nice to not be bottoming out on RAM a lot. Pluses and minuses, I guess. Now here's the news...


Lieberman decides that the Joementum has been used up. Word is he'll retire in 2012. A grateful Democratic Party rejoices. Also retiring, Kent Conrad.


Something to consider while pundits are laughing at the idea that violent rhetoric and gun fetishism caused the shootings in Tucson; a CNN poll shows that 54% believe it will result in violence eventually.


It begins. Barack Obama buys into the bullshit idea that there's too much regulation of Wall Street.


HHS study says that about half of Americans have pre-existing conditions. Good thing the GOP's reform repeal effort is political theater, huh? Former Republican Senate majority leader Bill Frist --himself a doctor -- says the party ought to jsut give up on repeal and instead, build on it.


Alabama's new Republican governor has a big "fuck you!" for people who aren't Christian.


America's media crisis gets a little worse.


Finally, Republicans lie. A shocker, I know.
