  •  From a West Virginian... (4.00)
    I just sent a rather scathing message to Senator Byrd's office via his Senate website. From this point on, I will abandon my mentor, Senator Byrd, and will actively work for his defeat in 2006. I am absolutely outraged and very saddened to see such a great man fall from grace. This West Virginian will no longer tolerate what appears to be empty rhetoric in Byrd's defense of the Constitution. For shame, Senator Byrd. Even Lieberman is voting against Scalito!

    Senator Byrd has become a rallying point for Republicans over the last 5 years. Now that he is old and feeble, the GOP uses him as a joke. Now, Senator Byrd comes out in support of Alito. Additionally, Senator Byrd knowingly opposes abortion rights and frequently votes against issues that are in the best interest of the LGBT community. I am disgusted that MY Mountaineer name will be used as a "yes" vote for Scalito. It's time for Byrd to go, and I will contact the local party about it. There are very few liberals/Democrats left in the Northern Panhandle of West Virginia. This pretty much seals it. Welcome to Jesusland, folks.
