Stories to Watch: 11/9/12

Republican sore-loserism knows no boundaries. This is proven as middle-aged toddler and Murray Energy CEO Robert Murray lays off 156 employees in a tantrum over Obama's reelection. Jonathon Turley notes that this is the same jackass who forced employees to stand around as props -- without pay -- at a Romney rally.

Oh look, another whining GOP sore loser. This one doesn't seem to know what "amicable" means.

Wisconsin Senator-elect Tammy Baldwin does not take kindly to Sen. Ron Johnson offering to mansplain to her how the federal budget works. She's gonna be so awesome.

Trust me, conservatives are going to latch onto this story of Romney incompetence and use it as an excuse not to change a bit -- after all, it was all Mitt's fault! Gays, minorities, and women don't hate them after all! Then 2016 will roll around and they'll all be crying, "How could this have happened?!" again.

David Petraeus' resignation from the CIA predictably spawns a new rightwing conspiracy theory -- the "Obama mafia" framed him somehow so he wouldn't testify to congress about Benghazi. What a terrifying world of backstabbing and intrigue wingnut paranoiacs think they live in.

This is one of those things that could go very, very bad: SCOTUS revisits the Voting Rights Act.

Republican activists accidentally prove that there's no need for voter ID laws.

Happy birthday Carl Sagan. He would've been a youthful and spritely 78 years old.

Pres. Obama takes a hard line on tax cuts for the wealthy; the White House says he'd veto any bill to extend them.

Finally, Hurricane Sandy exposed some infrastructural weaknesses along the east coast -- our tunnels are not well protected.
