Count Me Skeptical

From alternet:

Kerry will filibuster

He said so.

Two quotes:

"As a Justice Department lawyer in the Reagan administration, Supreme Court nominee Samuel A. Alito Jr. helped devise a legal strategy to persuade the high court to restrict and eventually overturn Roe v. Wade , the historic decision legalizing abortion."
-- Page A01, Washington Post, 12/1/05

"I am prepared to filibuster, if necessary, any Supreme Court nominee who would turn back the clock on a woman's right to choose..."
-- Sen. John Kerry (D-MA), AP, 6/20/03

(Kerry quote via Buzzflash)

Evan Derkacz is a New York-based writer and contributor to AlterNet.

The King of Zembla writes Kerry a "Dear John" letter.

Dear Senator Kerry,


The one and only way to keep Alito from sitting on the Supreme Court for the rest of our natural lives is to filibuster his wack ass, and that means pulling your own party into line. Could you do us that little favor? Are you up to it?
