Support the Alito Filibuster

Gilliard has coverage. Be warned: every Senate office number I called has the same message (this mailbox is full), so I had to resort to emailing as many Senators as I could. From Daily Kos, here is a great list of links to Senators' web forms. The main point to make, assuming this Senator is not your Senator: "My contributions of time and money to the DNC will depend on the outcome of the upcoming filibuster." Or words to that effect. Even if he or she is not your Senator, this message should still hit home. Update: here is the most recent action post from Daily Kos. We have 15 no votes for cloture -- up 3 votes from this morning. One easy thing you can do to help: sign the petition at SaveTheCourt.Org. D.

Yes, dear. (But Kate STILL has nothing to worry about, except with the tall nurse.)

Reinforcing email goes out a little later this morning. I got "boilerplate" replies about voting against the nomination, but nothing specific on supporting the filibuster. I think I detect the smell of "weasel."

Oops. Re the previous "This post has been removed by the author." Who's "the author?" You, or the originator of the comment? The ambiguity incites a response from the "how'd they do that" bump on the brain. I'll get the hang of this yet.

Re the antibot word: kahzdwi -- isn't that one of the guys we're after in Iraq or one of the -stans over there?

Now it's vbthud -- obviously what happens to a verb used as a noun? Damn fat fingers!

Don't worry, rof -- I posted my last comment twice by accident, so I'm the one who deleted that post ;o)
