Stories to Watch: 3/13/12

The GOP, in their own words... here's the news...

Sarah Palin challenges Pres. Obama to a debate. It's puffed-chested grandstanding, because she knows it'll never happen in a million years. Which is good for Sarah, because she'd get her ass beat.

From the "ain't learned Jack" department: 4 out of 19 of the US's largest banks are unprepared for an economic meltdown and wouldn't survive without a bailout. Just another example of why "too big to fail" is "too big to exist" -- i.e., they don't have to be prepared because if the worst happens again -- and it will -- we'll have to bail them out or blow a whole in our economy. It's free, taxpayer-funded profit insurance. Bust the trusts.

I'm not sure I'm 100% clear on what this means, but Rush Limbaugh's syndicator is suspending "barter ads" for two weeks. Apparently, this is bad for Rush.

Neil deGrasse Tyson says hyperpartisanship has broken NASA.

Rick Santorum's decides it's time to go to war with Fox News. No, really.

Allen West doesn't seem to understand how time works. Not the Einstein space/time stuff, but the basic concepts of "past," "present," and "future." Effect before cause? Cool with him.

Republicans aren't putting together a coherent message on Afghanistan.

Another round of GOP primaries tonight. The big winner is expected to be Jesus. And Mittens, but mostly by not losing any ground.

Finally, Catholic League president Bill Donohue cements his reputation as an inexcusably awful, awful person.
