— While everyone else is in a post-convention glow, Dave at Rather Than Working proposes that the Dems missed a sure bet when they didn't go after the Bush Administration for all their assaults on the Constitution. Like Guantanamo, warrantless wiretapping, and the political firings and hirings at the Justice Department.
— In honor of Obama's presidential nomination, Shelbinator takes us on a photographic trip through Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s old neighborhood.
— And Chicken Fat reminds us it's the anniversary of one of the defining moments of the don't-let-the-door-hit-you-on-the-ass Bush presidency. One hint: Brownie.
