Two more Democrat Senators — Robert Byrd (WV) and Tim Johnson (SD) have announced their support for Judge Alito. Funny — in this Washington Post story, you have to go all the way to the 9th paragraph to find that stunning news. The headline is about how a few Democrats still foolishly — and dangerously — hold out hope of a filibuster.
It’s pretty simple. The Senate’s job is to provide advice and consent, not obstruction. They asked this man over 600 questions over some 18 hours of questioning. The number of Americans who support Judge Alito increased during the hearings. Some of the Senators embarrassed themselves and were seen as being too mean-spirited.
Kudos to Sens. Byrd and Johnson for heeding the Constitution ad understanding their role. As for the rest, we provide this helpful link.
Please write to your two Senators and urge them to support the good Judge, get this thing done. We sent our Key Vote Card up there today, letting every Senator know that the vote on Judge Alito will be considered a Key Manufacturing Vote. Legal reform begins at the top.
