    to take on the media, too.   Going to have to defend the dems - how?   If everyone sounds like "rebel without a cause", they'll just use it against them.  Kennedy and Kerry must have thought about this along with the rest who agreed to do it - don't you think?

    If it talks like an R, VOTES like an R, it is an R - even if it has a D after its name.

    •  The $64 question (4.00)
      We don't have access to the trad media. Our only way to communicate is with each other and directly to our elected officials, along with a LTE here and there.

      On the other side are people like Jan LaRue, chief counsel for Concerned Women for America, who do have access to the media. LaRue, who helped shoot down Miers and is a strong supporter of Alito, "...says, with a playful smirk, she would like to see the Supreme Court put Roe v. Wade through a paper shredder and then set it afire with a blowtorch."

      Maybe we have to provide them (our Senators and their staffs) with the arguments with which they can really reach through the noise and mobilize the rest of their base and those Americans who don't agree with Ms. LaRue.

      "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about the things that matter." Dr. ML King, from a jail cell in Birmingham, Alabama in 1963.
