Alito Nomination May Bring Long-Anticipated Judiciary Fight
Just hours after President Bush nominated federal Judge Samuel Alito (search) to the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday, partisan warriors on Capitol Hill began preparing for a looming dogfight over the conservative jurist.
Those partisan warriors? That's us.
I've already received my breathless email from Planned Parenthood where they assured me that unless I send them money all of our sacred rights will go right out the window.
PFAW is hard at work painting Alito as an "out of touch extremist" who will probably bring back slavery and arranged marriage. Oh, and send them money or all our cherished rights will be destroyed...
The other side is active. The other side is loony. What about us? We need to make sure our senators know how that we want Justice Alito confirmed!!!
For those of us who were upset, outraged, or just ho-hum about the Miers nomination, now's our chance to get behind a worthy candidate. There's no excuse for not writing a letter a day. Whether it's to your senators, to the editor of a Fishwrapper, or to the President to thank him for this nomination. Start now.
