The O'Connor disaster

Assuming that your stomach must be experiencing the same gravity-induced free-fall as mine, here are some great ideas on what we can do -- other than assuming the foetal position -- from Daily Kos.


If you have a cell phone, sign up for People at the American Way's Mass Immediate Response site. This way, you'll be able to receive text message action items instantly as events break. (If you signed up during the nuclear option fight, you'll need to re-sign up.)
Also sign up with the Save the Court, another PFAW website devoted specifically to this issue.
Recruit family and friends to the cause.
Write to the President, telling him he should choose a consensus candidate to replace O'Connor.
Contact your senators to tell them the same thing.
Will any of this work in the face rightwing extremism? We won't know until we try it -- and lord knows there aren't any better options out there right now.
