We get results

As the Poor Man once said. Two days ago I called Senator Feinstein a "stalwart milquetoast" for her unwillingness to filibuster Alito. Yesterday she announced she would support the move.

I won't take credit. I can't even claim my calls to her office did it: I never got through because the line was constantly busy, which suggests how much pressure we collectively brought to bear.

But just in case:

Kerry and Kennedy are mounting this pointless filibuster in order to win political points with the far-left. Many prominent Democratic senators will not support a filibuster and some, including respected leftie Robert Bryd will vote to confirm Alito because they are smart enough to realize that attempting to block this nomination is blatant obstructionism.
