Stories to Watch: 8/13/12

I know the Ryan pick is big news, but surely something else has happened that's worthy of a mention from the punditry.

On that Ryan news front, it looks like Paul's been "palling around with terrorists" -- although, in Ryan's defense, Kamal Saleem is almost certainly a bullshit artist and no terrorist. But given the context, that's really not much of a defense.

Someone save us from centrist fools.

CNN Candy Crowley will host a presidential debate -- the first time in twenty years a woman has done so.

A Politico/George Washington University Battleground poll taken before Romney chose Ryan shows the race a dead heat. This disagrees with other recent polling, so take it with a grain of salt until it's confirmed by other surveys. It's hard to believe Romney would've chose Ryan if he weren't in trouble.

RIP Helen Gurley Brown.

The growing threat of hate groups in the US military.

An old Romney pander comes back to haunt him.

The return of robo-signing.

Finally, Republican Governor of Texas and ex-frontrunner for the GOP presidential nomination Rick Perry is secretly a communist, like Hitler.
