As Steve said, the NY Times has come out strongly against confirming Alito based on the damage he would do to the American Constitution and the balance of power. Furthermore, it looks like the Democrats are solidifying their opposition as they start to internalize what the impact of an Alito appointment would mean for the country. Now it's your turn to do your part in stopping this nomination by contacting your Senators and letting them know that you expect them to protect and defend the constitution by filibustering Alito. After all, the compromise to keep the filibuster was to save it so as to prevent exactly this type of destructive appointment. You can contact your Senators here: http://www.emailtocongress.com/.
So, what else is on your mind?
