Stories to Watch: 4/10/12

All right. Starting to get back on track here. The roundup should be back any day now. Now here's the news...

Sign that Gingrich is as done as Santorum: the $500 check that Gingrich 2012 wrote to cover the filing fee for Utah's primary bounced. No, I didn't leave out the comma. Gingrich stiffed Utah for the huge sum of five hundred bones.

And what does it mean when a candidate "suspends" their campaign? It's mostly face-saving weasel words to avoid saying, "We lost." But there are some real world ramifications, as well.

Meanwhile, Ron Paul (remember him?) says he's still in it for the long haul.

George Zimmerman's lawyers fire him. It seems he can't be bothered to give his attorneys the time of day -- he's too busy chasing celebrity with Sean Hannity. No, really.

There's a mole at Fox News, leaking what's basically celebrity gossip about the on-air talent. I guess they're not high up enough to get the skinny on the execs. But the insight into Fox Nation is pretty good; Mole says it's "like an unholy mashup of the Drudge Report, the Huffington Post and a Klan meeting." Maybe we can get someone in the media to notice that Fox Nation commenters are really racist and, more importantly, that the site goes out of their way to attract racists.

Santorum 2012 in memoriam; ThinkProgress collects a sampling of all the crazy-assed stuff Rick's said.

Paul Ryan makes a comically ridiculous claim.

In related news, Ryna's budget is hard to defend. Ask Republican Rep. Dan Benishek.

It's not over yet; Limbaugh loses another station. This time, in the big Philadelphia market.

Finally, if this is the kind of "help" Republicans can expect from Herman Cain in trying to dispel the silly notion of a War on Women, Democrats should encourage him to help more.
