Stories to Watch: 3/4/11

Right-leaning pollster Rasmussen has more bad news for Wisconsin Republicans -- Gov. Walker's approvals are dropping like a stone. This has the rightwing blogosphere in a despair worthy of Goethe. It's quite a feat to strike them spinless.

Mike Huckabee criticizes Natalie Portman for being pregnant and single, realizes this sounds a lot like Bristol Palin, and tries to jam the words back in his mouth. Mike's been trying to play to the GOP base, while at the same time trying not to sound completely insane. Turns out, it can't be done.

The US added 192,000 jobs last month, making it the best jobs report in three years. Of course Republicans, who haven't actually gotten much of anything passed, take all the credit.

Meanwhile, Krugman points out that Republicans are doing everything in their power to choke off job growth and kill economic recovery.

Scott Walker isn't Hitler... But Hitler is very disappointed in Scott Walker.

Speaking of Hitler, Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown says something that's undeniably true -- that Hitler oppressed unions. So, of course, it's the worst thing ever! Breitbart's Big Government claims that Hitler was a big fan of unions -- which might be believable, if it weren't so famously untrue.

Finally, the Obama administration rolls up its sleeves and joins in on the growing labor fight in the states -- behind the scenes, of course. I can understand them wanting to test the waters first, but you really wish someone would just shove them in.
