Every Call Counts

Time to use those cell phone minutes...

John Warner, Arlen Specter, Chuck Hagel and Mike Dewine are on the fence about voting against the nuclear option. Please take a moment to make a call to let them know they are being watched.

If you live in their states - Virginia, Pennsylvania, Nebraska and Ohio - your call will carry even more weight! Please call the phone numbers given below.

From jmhm.

"According to today's Roll Call (as quoted in ABC's "the Note"), Reid has 49 votes to maintain the filibuster (including Snowe, Chafee, McCain, and Collins.)

He needs 2 more votes. Roll Call identifies Warner, Specter, Hagel, and Dewine as the "swing" votes.

If you go over to Free Republic, they are organizing telephone campaigns to contact the affected senators.

We need to be calling as well, and making sure that the right-wing noise machine doesn't drown us out.

Expect to be asked where you are calling from. And be sure to sound reasonable. I try to sound like a "moderate" voter who might pull the lever for a Republican under the right circumstances.

Tip: remember that *67 blocks caller id to most offices.

And don't forget to remind Mike Dewine that he's up for reelection in 2006.

These people care very little about the issues if they believe their seats are at stake, and they're already running scared of the corporations (which are very unhappy about the Congress not doing their business in a timely fashion)

Don't let the phone banks on the right stampede them.

Hell, for all of me, make the phone banks on the right waste a lot of expensive time listening to busy signals.

No kidding. This is court packing, and it's court packing by the most extreme judicial activists Karl Rove could find.

Don't let them do it."

I can't really talk because I am at work but I did use the e-mail form for each senator to send the message below. I changed it up for each of them.

Dear Senator Dewine,

Even though I do not live in Ohio, I have always respected you as a voice of moderation and reason in the Senate. I hope you will stand with John McCain and Olympia Snowe and vote AGAINST the nuclear option. The judicial filibuster is not just a Democratic tool and is one that may be needed by Republicans in the future to oppose judicial nominees supported by Democratic presidents.

Many moderate voters in your state and across the USA look to you to protect the traditions of the Senate during this critical time. And moderate citizens of Ohio will remember your actions during your upcoming run for re-election.

Thank you,
Kenner, LA
