Stories to Watch: 12/6/11

Burgers tonight, because I can't think of anything else to make and I haven't had one in a while. Always nice to have an old standby. Now here's the news...

National Review senior editor Ramesh Ponnuru tries to talk sense into Republican voters flocking to Gingrich. It is, of course, a lost cause. Check the comment thread for the racist, idiotic, ignorant response from the base. One moron calls him a "non American," while another says he's a member of the "same biased media that brought us Obama." Trust me, the thread is full of this kind of stupidity. Rightwing blowhards like Ponnuru made these idiots -- now they get to live with them.

Rightwing hack Jennifer Rubin also gives a shot at dragging the base back to reality and away from Newt. I doubt she'll have any better luck.

BTW, Gallup confirms that the fools are running toward Gingrich like he's the second coming of Reagan.

I don't think I've ever come across the writing of Esquire's Charles P. Pierce before, but this is freakin' awesome.

The Pentagon advises Newt Gingrich to actually read the stuff he mouths off about.

Yahoo News gets invited (accidentally) to listen in on an RNC strategy call.

Obama talks income inequality.

Politico will give a "Health Care Policymaker of the Year" award to Rep. Paul Ryan. Steve Benen notes that this is insane.

Republicans filibuster the appointment of a judicial nominee. Caitlin Halligan would've been confirmed had it been an up-or-down vote. That's the Senate's version of democracy for you; the side with the least votes wins.

Finally, Mittens turns down The Donald's celebrity game show. So far, it's just Newt and Rick Santorum. Sounds like must-miss TV.
