Nice


  • More tragedy in the world--this time in Nice, France. [NY Times]
  • Zohra Bakhtary wants her contempt charge thrown out. [RJ]
  • Misconduct allegations against school district police investigator to remain in excessive force case. [RJ
  • Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg apologized for her comments about Donald Trump--but should she have to? Do judges lose their free speech? [LA Times]
  • @realDonaldTrump announced via Twitter that his VP pick is Mike Pence.
  • In the comments, someone mentioned a lawyer telling a judge they don't have to stand in court because it's a security risk...  Anyone have more details or opinions on standing in court?

  2. Outrageous. Another innocent follower of the religion of peace shot dead in his vehicle by trigger happy cops.

  3. Rumor has it that Trump was trying to back out of picking Pence last night. But for some reason, he we went forward with it. I think it's a horrible pick and is just going to alienate more of the undecideds/moderates who were unlikely to vote Trump in the first place. Now the question is Hillary or Gary Johnson....

    2. I'm all for making fun of Trump, but this is a reach. Lots of logos have interlocking letters. The Minnesota Twins' TC hat comes to mind. Only elementary school kinds and rabid Trump haters can turn it into something sexual.

    3. Does kind of look like Pence is hugging Trump around the waist though...

  5. Stephen Stubbs is on Facebook saying Biden should force the Senate to vote on Obama's judicial nominee. (He is also advocating Biden should attack the Senate with a cane).
