If Not Now, When?

During the 2000 election challenge in Florida:
Roberts traveled from his Washington office at Hogan & Hartson to Tallahassee to lend advice and help polish legal briefs. Later, Roberts participated in a dress rehearsal to prepare the Bush legal team for the U.S. Supreme Court.

A small miracle may be happening on Capitol Hill. The senate is getting so many calls to block the John Roberts SCOTUS nomination, they have already had to disconnect one hotline number. It's part of a Million Phone March, championed by radio host Thom Hartmann (and others) and since Friday, THOUSANDS of calls have been made.

If you think there is nothing you can do to change things, here's an easy, practical, and fast way to stop the man who helped George Bush illegally claim office in 2000 in Florida (see above).

Make 4 phone calls NOW:

Russell Feingold (D-WI) (202) 224-5323 e-mail: russell_feingold@feingold.senate.gov
Patrick Leahy (D-VT) (202) 224-4242 e-mail: senator_leahy@leahy.senate.gov
Don't forget Your Own Senators

There are lots of folks out there who favor appeasement. You know the argumen: if we accept Roberts now, we'll avoid an even WORSE candidate for the next vacancy. Yeah, try telling that to the Sudetenland. Here's a great response from Mark Crispin Miller.

So, what are you waiting for? Get off the internet and pick up that phone!
