Judiciary Democrats Unite Against Gonzales

The unanimity among Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee is very encouraging. Boxer's courage on Foreign Relations and on the Senate floor vis-a-vis the Rice nomination is perhaps contagious. I would never have advised a filibuster against Rice, however. This one is different.

Obstructionism in defense of sanity, and the very reputation of our nation, is no vice! Call your senators regardless of their party! Call the leading moderate Republicans [McCain, Hagel, Chafee, Snowe, Collins, Lugar, Specter] as well. If enough see the potential damage to our country of this ill-advised choice for Attorney General, maybe we won't even have to filibuster.
