"Call Your Senators"...

It's bad enough that both of my Senators - Chris Dodd (D) and Joe Lieberman (D) have committed to voting against Samuel Alito, one of the most eminently qualified candidates for SCOTUS in the entire country. But MoveOn.org is emailing me and begging me to write both of them to join Tweedledee (D) and Tweedledum (D) of Mass. to try and push a futile filibuster despite knowing that they don't have the votes to maintain it.

From MoveOn.org's e-mail: "Filibustering the Alito nomination isn't just the right policy for the country, it's good politics for progressives."

Nice, not only do they not have the balls to call themselves Liberals, but they're admitting flat out that this is nothing more than what they consider to be "good politics".

Fortunately, the people in charge understand that there are some things more important than "good politics" and a good man and prudent jurist will soon be seated on the highest court of the land.

Allow me to quote Willy Wonka on this one. "You get NOTHING! You LOSE! Good day, sir."

Try winning an election once in a while and maybe your party wouldn't be so impotent.
