Stories to Watch: 5/5/12

I don't think I'm going to make that recall canvass today. Getting people out to the primary isn't exactly crucial, though. It's the work after Tuesday that's going to make the big difference. Now here's the news...

Arizona scores a victory for the bad guys in the War on Women.

And the War on Women is also being fought in Washington, as Republicans seemingly argue that it should be OK smack women who are undocumented immigrants around.

Romney's reactionary impulse serves him very poorly in the ongoing story of Chinese dissident Chen Guangcheng.

Rick Santorum offers Mitt Romney some really shitty campaign advice: run on the "economic and family issues" that Rick ran on -- because that worked out so well for him and all.

Why you're hearing a lot less complaining about gas prices from Republicans lately.

Think there's political juice left in the Cheney "brand?" Liz Cheney apparently does.

Bill Maher makes a good point. When people talk about all the money they give to charity, they always include any donations to their church. Why should what amounts to membership dues to a club count as charitable giving? If your God says you have to do it, isn't that more like a tax than anything?

Finally, can we just all agree that Republican complaints about Obama "politicizing" terrorism are either stupid or insane?
