    Alito Action Alert

    From the DailyKos:

    This is a follow-up to Armando's great posts this morning on the filibuster. Improbable? Yeah. Impossible? Never. Take 15 minutes out of your weekend for democracy's sake. Track the updates on the cloture count here. Here is the latest update:

    NO on cloture (announced support for a filibuster):


    1. Barbara Boxer (D- CA)
    2. Dianne Feinstein (D- CA)
    3. Christopher J. Dodd (D- CT)
    4. Richard J. Durbin (D- IL)
    5. John F. Kerry (D- MA)
    6. Edward M. Kennedy (D- MA)
    7. Paul S. Sarbanes (D- MD)
    8. Debbie A. Stabenow (D- MI)
    9. Harry Reid (D- NV)
    10. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D- NY)
    11. Charles Schumer (D- NY)
    12. Ron Wyden (D- OR)
    13. Russell D. Feingold (D- WI)
    14. Barack Obama (D-IL)
    15. Joe Biden (D-DE)
    15. Robert Menendez (D-NJ)


    Also: Durbin says he has 37 votes. If your senators are not both listed above, call, fax, and email and let them know their constituents are afraid of what Alito could do. If your senator is on the list, let them know that you wholeheartedly support them.

    Some motivation from Ted Kennedy:

    Senator Kennedy just had a conference call with a number of bloggers to update us on his and Senator Kerry's filibuster effort, and to encourage the netroots and the grassroots to keep up our efforts. He's very excited by what he's seeing here and throughout the blogosphere, and gave a great pep talk.

    He is encouraging you to contact your Democratic Senators, regardless of what they might have said so far, but specifically mentioned Senators Pryor, Lincoln, Cantwell, Murray, Baucus, Harkin, Levin, Bayh, Lautenberg, Menendez, and Lieberman. In addition, he said to keep the pressure on Republican Senators Snowe, Collins, Chaffee, and Stevens.

    Senator Kennedy talked in particular about one thing that I think is critical to keep in mind as we approach our Senators, and for them to keep in mind as they are considering this vote. We need to overcome the media noise machine by letting our Senators know that in voting their conscience, and making it clear that they are voting on principle, on conscience, they will overcome the media noise machine calling them obstructionists. We can help them realize this by letting them know that we've got their backs. That they are voting our conscience as well, and that we will not forget their courage. ...
