MoveOn.org sent out a mass e-mail today urging its members to put pressure on Sen. John Warner (R.-Va.) to join with Sens. Kerry and Kennedy in an attempt to filibuster the nomination of Judge Alito to the Supreme Court on Monday.
Too bad Sen. Warner declared yesterday on the Senate floor that he would support Alito’s nomination:
"In my view, Judge Alitos strong record and experience, coupled with his appearance before the Judiciary Committee, eliminate any question of the existence of extraordinary circumstances that would justify denying him an up or down vote.
"Judge Alito is an outstanding judicial nominee who I am proud to support for confirmation. I believe he will serve on the United States Supreme Court with distinction, and I commend our President on making such a fine nomination."
Now what part of that did MoveOn.org not understand?
