Stories to Watch: 1/16/14

West Virginia warns away pregnant women from drinking tap water, which kinds shakes your confidence in their assurances that everything's fine now.

The UN warns that the conflict in the Central African Republic threatens to devolve into genocide.

Handy tip: if you're a felon who isn't allowed to own guns, don't go on a national TV show to show off all the guns you own. And maybe don't disclose your plans to use them to rob your neighbors one day.

A frequent Sean Hannity guest calls for a military coup against President Obama. Remember, these are the guys who tell you they love America way more than you do -- the guys who'd overthrow the government and undo the results of democratic elections. Freedom!

A judge stops a deal to rejigger Detroit's finances, because the Republican appointee in charge of the negotiations wanted to give "just too much money" to banks. That's right, he wanted to take so much money from a bankrupt city and give it to banks that a federal judge determined it was illegal. Whose hand is that in your pocket again? A Republican's, every time.

Despite GOP resistance, Democrats aren't ready to give up on extending jobless benefits quite yet.

Finally, Republicans have convinced themselves that Chris Christie is America's favorite governor, Obamacare is imploding, and Hillary Clinton's 2016 chances have been completely destroyed by BENGHAZI!!! Most people need drugs to remove themselves so far from reality, but being conservative's some sort of natural high, I guess.
