    Please be sure to use and disseminate these talking points:

    1. When the Rethugs claim that Alito is "entitled to an up-or-down vote", the answer is: Harriet Miers.
    The "up-or-down-vote" mantra has ZERO credibility in light of what happened to Harriet Miers--not to mention dozens of Clinton's court picks. The Rethugs who use that claim are LIARS and HYPOCRITES and need to be labled as such very strongly.

    1. The same applies to those who claim that Dems have no right to oppose Alito on idealogical or political grounds. Of course we can, must, should, will, and do. Those who claim to the contrary are LIARS and HYPOCRITES.

    2. The Rethugs love to say that winning elections gives Bush the right to choose whomever he likes, and we MUST defer to him. Reality check: Bush got 51% of the vote. 51%. This entitles him and the Rethugs to 100% of the gov't? 100% of power. Will they respect this creed when WE win 51%? Hhhhmmm...I think we answered that question during the Clinton years, no? Rethugs who claim that getting 51% of the vote entitles them to 100% of power are LIARS and HYPOCRITES.

    3. As stated before, the Rethug claim is that Bush is owed fawning deference to the majesty of his office. Let's just be sure to remind voters and the rest of the public that we've been rubber-stamping his appointees for 5 years now, and they're doin' a heckuvajob!

    Al Qeada is a faith-based initiative.
