This is a hella short diary; forgive me. I’m just not feeling all eloquent and loquacious and this is just too important.
John Kerry has a new anti-Alito petition and will be entering the gathered signatures into the Congressional Record! Please sign it and share it far and wide.
I’ve studied Judge Alito’s legal record. I met with him one-on-one. After all this, I am left with one simple conclusion: if Judge Alito becomes Supreme Court Justice Alito, he will move the Court backwards.
I will vote against Judge Alito’s confirmation, and I hope a majority of Senators choose to join us on the Senate floor, voting and speaking out against him. I know we face tough odds, but this is an important fight.
The bottom line is Judge Alito cannot be trusted on the Supreme Court. We can’t trust him to stand up to government abuse of power. We can’t trust him to ensure all citizens enjoy equal protection under the law. We can’t trust him to protect our right to privacy. We can’t trust him to defend mainstream American values.
To muster enough Senators to defeat Judge Alito, the American people have to make it clear that they are against his nomination. That’s where you come in. By speaking out, you will help us convince other Senators to join our fight.
We can do this!
