Stories to Watch: 7/31/12

Religion News Service's Sam Bahour rips Mitt Romney up one side and down the other for his racist comments in Israel.

The most terrifying words in any presidential election: "Florida is once again a sheer toss up."

Mitt Romney's tax breaks look nothing like your tax breaks.

An anti-Trayvon email going around proves once again that you have to be a total moron to fall for the bullshit in chain emails.

In my neck of the woods, Republicans have been beating the living shit out of each other to win a chance at the Senate seat Herb Kohl's vacating. Nice to see all it's gotten them is bloody. Go Tammy Baldwin!

Widespread blackout in India, 600 million people in the dark.

It's really unlikely that a marriage equality plank in the Democratic platform is going to cause a lot of dems to jump ship.

Mitt Romney said he'd have to "go back and look" to see if he's ever paid less than 13.9% of his income in taxes. Steve Benen wonders why the media isn't dogging him to go ahead and do just that.

Finally, if there's a major rightwing website more boobish than The Daily Caller, I can't think of it offhand.
