Just a sidebar note... I have personally called all the Republican Senators on the committee expressing my displeasure with Spector. The recurring response is "Thank you... You're not alone."
As a former resident of Texas, I took the addtional step of writing a letter to Cornyn. I've been attempting to fax it to his Washington office for over 24 hours, and have yet to receive anything but a busy signal on his fax line.
Reflecting what the switchboard operators conveyed, "I'm not alone" in attempting to fax the good Senator.
Frist has requested no one send him any more emails. He gets the message loud and clear.
I don't think Specter will get the job -- to say the least. Frist, et al, know what THEIR OBJECTIVES ARE and know the feelings of caring Americans.
Specter should not be pursuing this position with the vigor he is, given it is his last term. Again this smells of the far-left. IMHO, this is why it is SOOOOOO important this guy NOT get the job.
That means we should increase the pressure.
Sadly, these senators know that the people opposing Specter will still vote Republican in 2006 and 2008. So they won't act on their requests to remove the liberal chairman. Arlen is as secure in the post as a prince in his castle.
Specter wants the chairmanship to implement his own liberal agenda, and he plays to win. I cannot imagine the senators having the necessary backbone to stand up to Arlen. Maybe they will, but I can't see it. In fact, a backbone surgeon could make a fortune performing on certain Republican senators.
Just wondering, where are all the forces of darkness in the Specter controversy? Why haven't NARAL and People for the UnAmerican Way jumped in with their worthless two cents in this debate? Why aren't they circling the wagons around Specter?
They must be working furiously behind the scenes .....
It could be that NARAL has decided that it has no need to get involved because it expects the Republican senators to follow tradition and install the liberal Specter as chairman. And NARAL may believe in the old adage if one's enemy is fighting from within, then step back and let them self-destruct.
I and many others are witholding contributions to the Republicans pending the result of the Judiciary chair fight.
Signed and forwarded to others.
After seeing your tagline, I thought you would be interested in this.
Done and BUMPED!

Dumping Specter must be a non-starter. "The Capital Gang" on Saturday, the CNN weekly starring Mark Shields, had nothing on the conservative opposition to Shields. Instead, Shields focused on the possibility of IA's liberal Governor Vilsack becoming the DNC chairman.
Also they know that if they appear on the scene the protest from people who had supported the GOP in this election will be immense.
A little ironic considering Shields himself is a rare pro-life liberal.
Though he calls himself "prolife," I don't think Mark Sheilds ever rejected a pro-abortion liberal Democrat running for any office.
I can always count on a Marine to see the situation with crystal clarity.
That's the same thing they "knew" in 1996.
Pat Buchanan said on "The McLaughlin Group" this weekend that the campaign against Specter has no chance of success.
In the 1996 campaign, Pat and Arlen staged several one-on-one "debates" because they were the only candidates willing to stake out controversial stands among the GOP.
'Arlen the Aborter' the Specter of death hangs over OUR Supreme Court
I want no more taxes. I get the message loud and clear!
His vote in January will determine whether or not he really got the message.
