Stories to Watch: 2/8/11

Skipped the StW yesterday. Hope someone noticed. Now here's the news...

Republican Sen. Dick Lugar tells Tea Party to 'get real' about the START treaty. Good advice, but remember, these are 'baggers -- living in reality is not what they're all about.

Laurence Tribe talk sense about the Supreme Court and healthcare reform.

Meanwhile, Blue Dogs -- who, let's remember, did the worst in last election cycle -- won't take "you suck and no one likes you" for an answer.

Demonstrating the GOP's laser-like focus on creating jobs as promised, Eric Cantor announces that House Republicans will try to defund healthcare reform next week -- creating not one single job.

Amid continuing and massive protests, Egypt's transitional government begins rejiggering their constitution. Observers believe that the government hopes that such a long, complex, drawn-out process will cause the protesters to lose interest.

For the life of me, I can't figure out what Republicans have against high-speed rail. Does anyone remember the last time they went mental over new airports or seaports or highways? Yeah, me neither.

Finally, Rep. Fred Upton makes sure the Koch brothers get what they paid for.
