It is a shame that even while Rush was reading this today, there was an article already on the web by Byron York on NRO saying that the Fox story was baseless and that the White House is even more involved than ever in getting Big E confirmed.
We will win this one.

I really liked what Rush had to say here......
I know they say there are new rules making a filibuster harder, but so what? And don't tell me that it's not "practical" anymore, because people have to go to the bathroom. That's nothing new.
Force them to get out there and filibuster this eminently qualified man, as rated unanimously by the American Bar Association. Miguel Estrada is just a name to us, but his life is being destroyed here. It's not because he's unqualified; it's because Democrats don't like how he might think. Read George Will's column. Chuck Schumer didn't bother to ask Estrada a single question. He claims not to know any less qualified judge, when in fact he knows less qualified judges who went to the Supreme Court! Just this week, President Bush pledged to stand by Estrada until he was sworn in. We know no other nominee has been asked to give nor should give opinions on issues that may come before the court. Their job is to apply the law, not to make law or let their opinions get in the way of rulings.

Well, while Rush was on, I was reading the posts here, and there were a couple quoting that article.
Needless to say, I placed calls. To Hatch, Frist, and my own Senators.
All said they're gonna see this through. Twenty minutes after talking to Hatch staffer, Rush says he's getting calls from Hatch office, saying story's wrong.
Oh well. Gave me a chance to suggest the 'shun linda dashle strategy.' Guy at my senator's office said a couple people had suggested that. Who knows?
