Stories to Watch: 8/1/12

A slew of new polling shows Obama ahead in swing states, so the right does what they always do -- pick apart the polling. Ed Kilgore explains why the right isn't debunking polling as much as disputing reality, while I'll point out that swing state polling has almost always shown Obama ahead -- why expect anything different today and why especially after a string of bad headlines for Romney?

You know how Republican economic plans always have tax cuts for the rich, paid for by the middle and lower classes? Mittens' is no exception. Seriously, if you plan on voting Republican and you aren't among the very richest of the very rich, you're a Grade-A chump -- a point the Obama campaign wasted no time making (although, not so bluntly).

If Mitt Romney's immigration advisers are any indication, his recent racist comments were no accident. Consider especially Russell Pearce.

Today's Second Amendment Hero.

Rep. Steve King is a boob.

The pro-Obama Super PAC Priorities USA Action makes a $30 million airtime buy.

Finally, it looks like we're backing the Syrian rebels -- behind the scenes, of course.
