  •  Called Boxer (none)
    in DC office. Could not get through so they must be getting swamped. I did call San Diego office and the staffer I talked with was very sympathetic and listened to me. I asked how they convey to her what people are calling about. He said they do a tally sheet and send it to her at the end of the week. I told him that this was a little more urgent and he agreed and said he already had three pages on Alito. I don't know how many on each sheet but people are calling here in San Diego. Just wanted to let you know.

    Next, on to The presidential hopefuls.

      My feeling is that a quick sentence ("I'd like to encourage the Senator to fillibuster Judge Alito") probably has the same weight as making a whole speech.  Saves a lot of time too.
      •  Guess I refuse (none)
        to live in the 30 second soundbite world. If I have something to say that includes more than one sentence to the person I am paying(or their staffers)to represent me that is what I will do. I just don't agree that this is a one sentence issue. I believe this is the future of our country at stake.

        •  yes, but... (none)
          I would agree that it's worth 20 minutes or more.  But think of it this way- the shorter your calls, the more you can make.  Why waste your breath?
