  •  If I thought it would accomplish anything... (none)
    ...I would both call and write to my representative and senators. My Rep, JoAnn Davis, is in lockstep with the Bush administration along with Sen. George Allen. Sen. John Warner is a little better, but only by milimeters.

    Sadly, I have no Congressional representation.

    •  Call anyway. (none)
      I'm in the same situation in PA

      I have Specter (not entirely terrible), Santorum (eww), and Charles Dent (R) as Rep.

      I'll call Dent at least. I'm going to say, along with the basics:

      "I heard Democrats were excluded from negotiations. Why? Did you discuss this with your Democratic colleagues? Also, why was the Justice Department involved when the ACLU wasn't? Don't you think that was one-sided?"

      I'm going to ask him to send me a letter responding to this. He's up for election in 06. Responses to these questions might help as ammo against him in a campaign, if it turns out he helped exclude democrats and was otherwise one-sided. So far there isn't a serious challenger, but I'm doing what I can to change that.

      When you stop being paranoid, that's when they get you.
