6/28 Casual Friday: Cliff Schecter

June 28, 2013

Cliff Schecter, explained the politics of the Supreme Court, Scalia’s laughable dissent on DOMA, why tv has played a major role in the advancement of Gay Rights, the evolution of support for Marriage Equality and why women’s rights will continue to drive progressive politics.

On The Better Half: how Obama positioned himself on Keystone XL, the Pentagon blocks access to the Guardian, why art has been corrupted by an unending focus on money and your calls and IMs.

And keep the conversation going on our morning thread
