Kerry wants a filibuster

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

From CNN:

Kerry said he told a group of Democratic senators Wednesday, and urged that they join him. Kerry said he has the support of fellow Massachusetts Sen. Edward Kennedy.

Some senior Democrats told CNN they are worried that the move could backfire.
Of course "senior Democrats" are worried the move could backfire...and then they go out and add fuel to that fire. God forbid the Democrats stand for something.

Make the GOP say what they want: a justice who will overturn Roe v. Wade. Make them defend it. They never say it. Make them.

And I love Mary Landrieu's concern:
"Because we have such a full plate of pressing issues before Congress, a filibuster at this time would be, in my view, very counterproductive," said Landrieu, who is pushing the Senate to focus on the rebuilding of the Gulf Coast in the wake of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
Landrieu's constituents have been completely screwed over by Bush and the GOP since Katrina struck. If she had a spine, she'd be filibustering everything til Congress paid attention to the mess that still exists in Lousiana. She's pathetic.
