Republican Vet posts at Crosses aCross America for people to lobby Sen. Schumer (D-NY) to give Judge Roberts the same consideration given to Justice Ginsburg in her confirmation hearing. In support of this effort, and being a constituent of Sen. Schumer, I emailed the following:
Dear Sen. Schumer:
Please remember "the Ginsburg standard" during the upcoming confirmation hearings of Judge Roberts. If you confront him over questions he cannot possibly answer, you will be seen as divisive, not to mention obstructionist. These are the very arguments you make against the Bush administration in general. Don't come off as a hypocrite; ask sensible questions, and then vote your concience. That's all I ask of you.
-FROM A CONCERNED NEW YORKER
Short, and to the point. Sen. Schumer doesn't even send automated form responses to his constituents, though Sen. Clinton does. Still, it's important to express this point of view to my elected representatives, especially when they lead the opposition to it.
UPDATE: Sen. Schumer auto-responds (sort of) in the comments section.
