Wictory Wednesday: April 27, 2005

Today, instead of money, the Wictory Wednesday bloggers are asking for your time and effort in lobbying the Senate to help end these ridiculous, unprecedented judicial filibusters holding our Federal Appellate Courts hostage to the whims of the minority party and their absurd far-left financiers!

You can find the necessary contact information for your Senators as well as any other Senators you feel it may be worthwhile to contact here.

Just remember, please, to be polite and courteous. It makes all of us, especially you, look a whole lot better and tends to elicit a more desirable response.

You may want to concentrate your effort on those GOP Senators who may be on the fence on this issue and need to be reminded by their constituents, election volunteers and donors what it is we expect in return for our money, our efforts on their behalf and our votes! (And that is, of course, representation for our views and loyalty to our party and our President on key issues such as this.)

Among the GOP Senators who could use your encouragement the most (BE NICE):

Sen. Lincoln Chafee, RI
Sen. Susan Collins, ME
Sen. Mike DeWine, OH
Sen. Chuck Hagel, NE
Sen. Gordon Smith, OR
Sen Olympia Snowe, ME
Sen. Arlen Specter, PA
Sen. John Sununu, NH
Sen. George Voinovich, OH
Sen. John Warner, VA

Please note that AZ Sen. John McCain is likely a lost cause on this issue, but you may still want to contact him with your opinion, particularly if you reside in Arizona!

It may also be worth your while to signal your support for John Bolton to be confirmed as U.N. Ambassador to Sen. Voinovich, Sen. Hagel & Sen. Chafee at the same time.

Contacting a reasonable Democrat or two or those Democrats representing red states may not hurt either:

Sen. Max Baucus, MT
Sen. Evan Bayh, IN
Sen. Jeff Bingaman, NM
Sen. Thomas Carper, DE
Sen. Kent Conrad, ND
Sen. Byron Dorgan, ND
Sen. Tim Johnson, SD
Sen. Mary Landrieu, LA
Sen. Joseph Lieberman, CT
Sen. Blanche Lincoln, AR
Sen. Ben Nelson, NE
Sen. Bill Nelson, FL
Sen. Mark Pryor, AR
Sen. Ken Salazar, CO
