Stories to Watch: 1/17/12

It was a wonderful day in Wisconsin (see below). Now here's the news...

It was a big day in my little city. Recall petitions were delivered to the capital -- a literal ton of them and accounting for more than one million signatures. A reporter for the Wisconsin State Journal says that the head of the Government Accountability Board (GAB) is having trouble finding workers to check the signatures, because one of the requirements is that the temps can't have signed the petition. That's how successful this petition drive has been. There are more such nuggets of info at WSJ's live blog of the filing, as well as a photo gallery here.

Handy tip: when you're trying to convince people you're not a hate group, it helps to refrain from acting exactly like a hate group.

Rick Perry sparks an international incident by being stupid on the teevee. His campaign tries to clean up the mess, but it's pretty hopeless.

After realizing that not releasing his tax records created a bigger problem than it solved (i.e., the "Streisand Effect"), Mittens reveals his taxes are a ridiculously low 15% and says he'll release his records this spring.

Finally, Young Lee -- the co-founder of the Pinkberry yogurt chain -- is an awful, awful person.
