Monday Open Thread
I spent all my blogging time last night and this morning weeding out objectionable comments on the Zimmerman threads. I'm still not done.
Big Tent Democrat is very busy the next few days with the pre-relaunch of Daily Kos radio, whose official relaunch comes at Netroots Nation next week.
The Supreme Court has ruled Dick Cheney's secret service agents have immunity in a 2006 Colorado lawsuit filed by a protester who was arrested. The Tenth Circuit had ruled the lawsuit could proceed.
“This court,” Justice Thomas wrote for six justices, “has never recognized a First Amendment right to be free from a retaliatory arrest that is supported by probable cause; nor was such a right otherwise clearly established at the time of Howards’s arrest.”
Another example of how much it matters who gets appointed to lifetime positions on the federal courts and Supreme Court.
This is an open thread, all topics welcome.
