Stories to Watch: 1/19/12

I'm going to try using the word "socialist" the way conservatives do -- simply as a synonym for "bad": we're expecting a socialist snowstorm tomorrow and if it gets too socialist, I may not get a lot of blogging done. Not only will it keep me digging, but socialist weather tends to interrupt my internet connection. I'll probably make some hot cocoa -- from scratch, the real stuff -- so I probably won't have it too socialist, when all is said and done. Now here's the news...

If Newt Gingrich becomes president, he'll exercise dictatorial power -- he promises.

Hey look, yet another of the endless stream of GOP debates I won't waste my time watching.

Rick Perry drops out of the GOP primaries, leaving a hole in much the same way a stone dropped into water might. The campaign world is not rocked.

Santorum wins Iowa -- far too late for it to make any difference. The media narrative is already written out and they'll be damned if they're going to change the "momentum" plot line.

We're reminded that payday lenders make a killing ripping off the poor. And I'll remind you that these things sprouted up like mushrooms after Clinton signed welfare "reform." How many straight years of failure does that make? Doesn't matter. No one's counting.

After the FBI raids the online filehosting site Megaupload for alleged copyright violations, Anonymous stages a raid of their own and crashes the Justice Department's website.

No one has ever accused Sarah Palin of having a keen political mind and her finger on the pulse of the American people. There's a reason for that.

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker's plan to create a quarter of a million new jobs while drastically undercutting consumer demand is going about as well as you'd imagine.

Finally, that auto industry bailout was sure an awful, awful thing, huh?
