Score one for the anti-Bush protesters

Anti-war protesters? No. Bunnies? Yes.

Do you remember this story? Back in the day, 2007, President Bush came to Albuquerque. Protesters for peace had to wave their signs out of view of the motorcade, while supporters were allowed front-row seats. Scenarios like this cropped up time and again around the country during Bush's presidency. FOX reported on it in 2003.

The American Civil Liberties Union sued the Bernalillo County Sheriff's Department and others for shuffling the anti-Bush and anti-war demonstrators off to the side. The defendants asked that the suit be thrown out. But today, a District Court judge ruled that it should move forward, and it will likely go before a jury.
