Progressive politics, news & talk hosted by David Waldman
Kagro in the Morning - August 11, 2014

Gotta discuss the unrest in Ferguson, but the only part of it that's even close to being in my wheelhouse is the contrast between how police approach First Amendment protests versus Second Amendment ones. Which brings us back to the Ohio WalMart shooting, which for better or for worse, even gun rights advocates are catching on to. James O'Keefe is still alive, and he thinks you don't know Osama bin Laden is dead. Sarah Palin channel begins serving up the dumb-vomit. Via Twitter, Stacy Cox suggests we make fun of Tucker Carlson, and I oblige. Lisa asks how many kids have had fatal gun accidents this month, so we count it up. Bill in Portland Maine pointed us to a story worthy of wider notice: Gov. LePage won't bother looking into or trying to recover half a million dollars swiped by a crony. And BallerinaX recalls a link between the Maine story and Utah politics.
