KEEP CALLING - Repugs are calling, too!

I've been dialing my fingers off all morning and mostly having trouble getting through to Senate offices. But I did get through to Senator Feinstein's office and the office of Senator Mary Landrieu. In both contacts I discovered something obvious that I just hadn't thought of before: THE REPUGS ARE CALLING, TOO! I know that sounds silly and naive but I just hadn't thought about it.
Feinstein's office said they were "inundated" with calls and that the calls were running "fifty-fifty" on whether to filibuster. Landrieu's office said "our phones are ringing off the walls" but said that the calls were supportive of Landrieu's no filibuster position by about 75-25. So we need to keep calling!
