Time for Action on Judicial Nominations
(I meant to put this up yesterday but have had a difficult time posting. Something was wrong at Blogger.com.)
Blogfather Hugh Hewitt has a cogent and informative post today about the judicial nominations crisis and Democrat obstructionism. It's a must-read for all conservatives. So is this follow-up post by Hugh.
More important that reading the post and learning the issues is actually doing something about the matter. If you care about ending the Democrats' effort to stymie the popular will on judicial appointments, e-mail any senator (starting with Senator Frist); the e-mail links are here.
Just in case you're looking for inspiration, here's the rather terse text of my e-mail to the good Senate Majority Leader:
Senator Frist: Please don't back down on the "Constitutional option." Getting Bush-appointed judges confirmed was a major issue and rallying cry during the 2004 election. Support for the GOP on that very issue was a big factor in the growth of the Republican majority in the Senate. We need you all to stick to your guns! Thanks for listening.It would be a shame for the GOP to lose on this one. I think it falls into the category of "things worth fighting for loudly and tenaciously." So let's fight-- loudly and tenaciously!
UNRELATED UPDATE: You simply have to read TenNapel's post yesterday. The guy's a blogging genius.
ADDITIONAL UNRELATED UPDATE: This is a hilarious photo. Look closely at the reflection in the President's glasses. Can you tell what book he is looking at?
