Contact Sen. Kennedy to thank him for his work on the Judiciary Committee last week and ask him to filibuster Alito confirmation whether he has the votes or not and whether Frist threatens the nuclear option or not.

Tell him to forget the Gang of 14. If this is not worth going to the wall for, what is? If not now, when?

People didn't think we could defeat Bork either, and we did. We can do the same now with Alito.

Two free numbers to the Capitol switchboard:1-866-340-9281 or 1-866-340-9279
Kennedy,Direct line: 202-224-4543

Please also call, Feingold (Who is saying he is going to run for President and who voted FOR Roberts.)
Feingold, Direct Line: 202-224-5323

One last call if you can: Inouye from Hawaii is the only Democratic Senator from the gang of 14 who did not vote for Roberts.
Inouye, Direct Line: 202-224-3934

Seventy% of the people in the USA do not want to overturn Roe.

You might want to remind Kennedy of the vote in MA several years ago, when one member of the state legislature changed his vote unexpectedly and unknown until he did it - and we were saved from bringing back the death penalty in MA by this one surprise and changed vote at the actual time of the vote, not before. If they had not held the vote because they did not have enough votes to defeat the push for death penalty, we would be stuck with the death penalty in MA
