There Goes My Invite to the NRO Cruise 2006

In other news, Crooks and Liars has video where you can watch Katie Couric school Howard Dean about the fact that Democrats received $1.5 million in donations from Jack Abramoff. Because the Center for Responsive Politics told her so. Except they didn’t.

Let’s see if NBC has a functional ombudsman. His name is David McCornick:

Meanwhile, reports are circulating that John Kerry will lead a filibuster of Alito — reader LHM writes to say this has been confirmed with Kerry’s office.

Sounds like this feisty thing might be contagious, huh??

Update: Kerry’s office says they are working on the 41 Senators needed for a filibuster and they want people to call their Senators and tell them to support it. The main Senate number is 888-355-3588.

If there was ever a moment worthy of working yourself into a good case of carpal tunnel syndrome, this would be it.

Update II: Sean-Paul Kelley reports that Lieberman will vote yes on filibuster and Byrd will vote no.

Update III: DeWine is citing the Washington Post editorial in favor of confirming Alito. The New York Times this morning supports filibuster.
