Monday: tens of thousands of people across the country march for immigrant rights.

Tuesday: Dick Cheney, whose party faithful we can thank for the recent attacks on immigrants*, throws out the world's lamest first pitch in America's pasttime, the game of baseball, which then is played brilliantly by numerous Latino players, many of them immigrants.

*Yes, the Bush administration is trying to take a position somewhat more moderate than the "let's instantly make every undocumented person a felon" approach. But I guess when you make your political bed, you have to lie with those bedfellows.
