Monday Morning Action Plan

I enjoy reading FireDogLake they have suggested an action plan that is short and simple.

Russ Feingold put himself on the line for progressives and the nation yesterday -- by announcing on This Week that he was going to introduce a Motion for Censure against President Bush for breaking the FISA laws.

Let's take a little time this morning, please, and phone your Senators. Let them know you were impressed by Russ Feingold -- and ask them to tell you what their position is on the censure proposal.

You can go here to find the phone numbers you need. While you're at it, go ahead and call your Representative in the U.S. House. They need to know what's brewing out here in the real world as well.

After you're finished, you can report back here and I will take our tally to Firedoglake and post it in their comments, or you can go there yourself and leave a post. I know we're all very busy people, but let's take just a few minutes to do this. It isn't necessarily the answer that's important. It's the message we send with each phone call.



Burr's phone answering person

said, "I'll let him know how you feel." I doubt that. To let Dick Burr know how I feel would require a five hour marathon session filled with more expletives than either of us would want to endure . . . because Dick Burr doesn't actually give a damn how I feel. He's never answered a single letter or email from me . . . and he's never voted for anything I support.

Burr & company

He has sent me a reply, incoherant and not on subject so I'm not sure he even reads my message, just excreates a tepid iane response.

Incoherent and Not on Subject

just about describes the entire Republican platform.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

That's what I got too...

was it the really enthusiastic, nice sounding woman?

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

Republicans are making a

Republicans are making a mistake on the censure resolution if they do not let it come to the floor. They should bring it to the floor for an up or down vote. Given that Democrats will have to vote against it, it will be seen as an overwhelming victory for the President when it is voted down 80-20. And the 20 Democrats that would vote for it commit political suicide unless they are from Massachusetts.

Hmmmm . . .

You must be one of those people who support the lawbreaker, not the law. Though goodness knows Dear Leader could use "an overwhelming victory" right about now . . . since everything he touches turns to crap.

The question is....

Would a hollow victory really help him now. The news about the call for censure barely made the front pages of any major least not on their web pages. If it was voted down it would be a bleep on the radar screen and probably wouldn't help the shrub's numbers at all.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.
