72-25?! Senate Dems Surrender...

I most of last week and all day today faxing and calling Senators to urge them to vote NO on Cloture and filibuster. It felt as if there was a groundswell in our behavior. But it wasn't even close. Only 25 Dem Senators had the guts to vote against Cloture. I will not donate any money or in anyway assist any of the TWENTY Democrats who betrayed us on this issue!
You realize that? Of our 45 Dem Senators TWENTY voted with the Republicans assuring that Alito will sit on the Supreme Court.
WE NEED A PROGRESSIVE THIRD PARTY!!
