Will the Dems unite against Alito? They just might, and you can help.

It's good to see that just a week after the filibuster was declared dead, Democratic senators are now starting to act against the nomination. Hopefully part of it was the recent Supreme Court ruling that pitted Scalia, Roberts and Thomas against the others in a case they should have been behind-- limiting federal power over state governments. But they went the other way on this one, demonstrating their committment to ideology rather than the Constitution.

John Kerry has just posted an online petition that he means to circulate among the senators. Follow the link above and sign on. And contact your own senators. I have, but they're both publically against Alito at this point.
