  •  Everybody Can Feel It (4.00)
    Listening to Kerry on the floor of the Senate yesterday, I almost, almost started to cry.  Corny?

    Some say it's grandstanding, a publicity stunt, a waste of time, a disgrace, etc...  It's an opportunity to reason with blockheads.  The more we think about Alito, the worse he looks, let's face it.

    It would be worse than a mistake to install him.  Yeah, he's brilliant.  Yeah, he's a good man.  But he's also somebody with a very narrow, defended outlook, and I wonder at times if he is still human, or whether he has morphed into some kind of machine.

    He's a home-grown catastrophe.

    Plus, look who nominated him!  That alone makes it virtually impossible to allow his confirmation to succeed.

    The more people hear about it, the more they will understand.  Now we all are beginning to see that this is the defining moment, when the unthinkable is rejected because everybody acted like real Americans and reasoned together.

    The so-called, "Global War On Terror" IS Terrorism!

    •  "look who nominated him!" (none)
      Being nominated by the un-President makes you the un-Justice (or is that IN-Justice?)  Right?

      It's probably not in the Constitution, but I'm thinking "ROLLBACK" a lot lately.

      And I'm thinking the American people may be especially amenable to rolling back a lot of Bush's damage, whatever it takes...

      If a thousand men were not to pay their tax bills this year, that would not be a violent and bloody measure, as it would be to pay them, and enable the State...

    •  If they hear about him (4.00)
      NBC Nightly News didn't even mention Alito last night.

      Our concerted efforts, a mass of tens of thousands, probably more than a hundred thousand, are united against him, and we are letting our party know that although the traditional media may gloss over Alito, we are most definitely not. And these are the reasons.

      This fight is getting more and more winnable every hour. This weekend let's burn all of the paper out of their fax machines with our message. And early Monday morning, it's back to the phones. Not with loud, angry yells--with steady, well-reasoned arguments backed by real passion. Let them know there are enough of us out here, ignored by the trad media, that we've got there back, that they can go to the mat on Alito.
