Stories to Watch: 2/9/11

It. Is. Cold... Period. Now here's the news...

That didn't take long. Hours after a scandal broke involving Craigslist, photos, personal ads, and his own marriage, Rep. Christopher Lee -- a NY Republican -- has resigned. It's kind of weird, because it sounded like it was embarrassing, but survivable. You wonder if there's more to it or whether Lee just didn't have the guts to face constituents after the story broke.

Meanwhile, Sen. Jim Webb announces he won't seek reelection.

House GOP suffer another embarrassing loss. This time, in trying to take back money paid to the UN. On their previous loss, Adam Serwer largely agrees with me -- the influence of the Tea Party on the final vote count is being wildly overstated.

House Republicans who took the dare and swore off the commie, gummint-controlled health insurance offered to members are starting to get what all that reform stuff was all about. Welcome to the real world, mad tea partiers.

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is regaining her powers of speech.

Finally, labor joins in with protests in Egypt by staging a general strike.
