If you want to jump on board and tell your Senators we do care, very much, who they put in the Supreme Court — and show that we’ll support them if they refuse to confirm unacceptable candidates — consider signing this petition at moveon.org and volunteering to call your Senators.
Here’s the little cut and paste message thing they sent out:
Subject: O’Connor is retiring. Take action to protect our rights.
As you probably heard, Sandra Day O’Connor just resigned from the
Supreme Court. This is an extremely important time for our senators
to hear from us. They need to know that we are counting on them to
stand up to President Bush and protect our rights –- because with a
moderate like O’Connor stepping down and a far-right like Bush making
the nomination, well, the stakes couldn’t be higher. The Terri Shiavo
tragedy showed us all just how far these people are willing to go.
MoveOn PAC has already started an emergency petition, and we’re
looking to get 250,000 signatures and comments to the Senate before
Tuesday –- which is when rumor has it Bush will announce his nomination.
I hope you can take a minute to join me in signing this petition, so
our senators know that, in what might be the fight of our lives, we
are need them to do what it takes to protect our rights.
