      It's too bad that the conservative media keeps spinning this as a win for Alito.

      Hah... conservative media.  How the worm turns.

      •  that the media has been saying he's a sure thing (none)
        would only heighten the drama (that may, in fact, be the reason they're doing that), and make our victory all the more sweet.

        It is too hard to believe the media really believes he's unfilibusterable, given his opposition to abortion.

        •  Dick Cheney (none)
          Also, by making it seem like a foregone conclusion, Dick Cheney stays in his undisclosed location and is unavailable to break the rules.

          That's right the UNCONSTITUTIONAL option BREAKS THE RULES...

          Bastards.

          •  IF YOUR SENATORS' LINES ARE BUSY, OTHER CONTACT #S (2.00)
            CALL YOUR SENATORS!

            If Repug, tell them "No" to Alito; if Democrat: FILIBUSTER!
            If the Washington lines are busy you can also call your Senators' home offices (for info, click here:) CALL YOUR SENATORS (Click here)

            Get the word out about why Alito needs to be filibustered:

            Write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper. (Click here)

            People for the American Way has collected nearly 65,000 signatures to send to the Senate, please add yours: Save the Court Petition

            John Kerry has endorsed this anti-Alito petition, signers' names will be read into the Congressional Record:

            And as thanks, some Alito jokes:

            "Supreme Court confirmation hearings are under way for Judge Samuel Alito. It's pretty interesting. Democrats want to know his position on privacy, while Republicans want to know his position on prison terms for bribery." --Jay Leno

            "The American Bar Association gave Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito their highest rating. President Bush gave Alito his highest rating, too, because he called him 'Super' and 'Duper.'" --Conan O'Brien

            "President Bush was asked how he came up with a conservative like Alito, and he said he got the idea over the weekend while turning the clocks back." --Jay Leno

            "Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito says he's embarrassed by some of the things he wrote in the 1980's. Yeah, apparently Alito wrote the song 'Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go.'" --Conan O'Brien

        •  heh heh heh (none)
          And the increased drama would be sure to draw tons more attention to Alito by our fellow countrymen. And the ONE THING the pukes don't want is for the average American to actually pay attention to what is going on in DC. That's the last thing they want. I saw, bring it on!

      •  It's not conservative (none)
        It's corporate. One thing that happened under BushCo is a loosening of the media rules on numbers of outlets owned, under Colin Powell's son Michael. It's showing now. In the things that are not covered more than anything. How much time did the Alito hearings get on the network news shows tonight? How much on the Sunday talk shows a few days ago?
