Stories to Watch: 3/8/11

Not much going on here. March is the messiest month -- mud is everywhere. And our governor's a douche. Now here's the news...

For the first time, a General Society Survey poll finds that more Americans support same-sex marriage than oppose it. Still no majority though: 46%-40%. Still, even if everyone still on the fence went anti, the pros would still be ahead.

Southern Poverty Law Center's Mark Potok takes on Rep. Peter King's "let's all be afraid of the Muslims" hearings. Shorter version: you want hate-filled anti-American radicals calling for (and committing) violence? Look at the American right.

James O'Keefe's ambush shop is at it again. This time, he's "busted" someone at NPR hating on conservatives. LIBERAL MEDIA BIAS!! The problem: the guy they conned wasn't a journalist, he was a fundraiser -- and he thought he was talking to a potential donor. His views have zero influence on the editorial content. And, when they start saying they represent the Muslim Bortherhood (what O'Keefe had hoped to bust them on), he turned down their money. Otherwise, writes Dave Weigel, "His pandering to the group is actually sort of masterful."

A fundraiser kissing ass? Imagine my shock. Next you'll tell me the guy at the used car lot was only being nice to me because he wanted to unload that rusty '71 Impala.

The move to recall Republican state senators in Wisconsin is coming along nicely. "If these new numbers the Wisconsin Democratic Party shares with me are accurate," writes Greg Sargent, "it's already exceeding expectations in a big way."

Finally, is even Scott Walker beginning to crack?
