  •  This is not a sporting event (none)
    Let's no think about the betting propositions and focus on what we can do, assuming you agree with us on this.

    The SCOTUS is extraordinary.

    •  Obviously I agree... (4.00)
      ..just read my posts. And I'm contacting my congressmen, writing editorials, and donating what money I can to the causes of Democrats who I think may do something.

      None of that means I trust them. I don't. They must earn trust by action, not by words. And their words are spectacularly uncomforting to begin with.

      •  I'd love to see the editorials you've written (none)
        Could you post one right now? (Or the drafts you've got lying around if they haven't been published right now?)

        If scAlito is mainstream, why lie about his record? Anyone? Bueller? scAlito?

        •  My last one.. (none)
          ..was to the Indianapolis Star, where I asked if they would ask Bush to resign. I hope this link works:

          Before that I wrote one about the "Intelligent Design" issue.

          The only time they ever published one of mine was my pro-Kerry editorial just before the election.

          I'm still working on something to send them this week. If you really want to see it, I'll show you when I'm done.

          •  Thanks. You don't need my judgment (none)
            ... but I'm all for posting LTEs and/or Op-Eds to keep people's real voices coming through the fog machine.

            •  My editorial (none)
              Not saying it's any good, but here's what I sent to the Indianapolis Star this morning:

              Samuel Alito should not be confirmed. First, he is obviously lying about the CAP membership, and thus cannot be trusted. Second, he seems to disrespect a proper concept of privacy and will strip hard-won rights away from women. Third, he decides far too often against the little guy and in favor of the powerfully wealthy. Finally, he is too eager to put too much power in the hands of the President, thus tying the hands of the Legislature and Judicial system.

              To those Republicans who support Alito: Will you be so happy when a Democrat becomes President and has nearly unlimited power, thanks in part to Alito?
