Response to MineralMan (Original post)

93. He hasn't been confirmed yet. Yes, Grassley will pass it out of committee on

a straight party line vote, but then it goes to the floor. Yes, Flake is now saying he will vote yea.

BUT...

It ain't over til it's over.

My wife and I together called my state's republican senator Cory Gardner. His DC office - leave a message. His offices all over Colorado - sorry this voicemail box is full.

We finally got through to Jack in Yuma, which is a little one-horse town out on Colorado's eastern plains, and we registered our displeasure. Jack assured us he'd pass it on.

But look at what happened. Gardner's mailboxes were all full. My whole state is basically against this pasty-faced privileged prep-school guy who acted like a five-year-old throwing a tantrum while being questioned. I mean, it's not like we're calling for the guy's head - but he clearly doesn't deserve a lifetime job at a quarter mil a year with great benefits on the highest court in the land. He isn't good enough. He doesn't cut the mustard.

Let's all keep the pressure up on this thing, and as you say, MineralMan, let us also get downright angry and work hard on getting people to vote.

Most Americans don't even know we're in a constitutional crisis. Lots of work to do this next five weeks. Lots of work.
