The Net Neutrality whip count

Talking Points Memo has produced a useful whip count listing where the various senators stand/don't stand. And so far, there are 12 good apples, four very bad ones, 31 who have made indecipherable pronouncements about where they stand, and 54 who have no known or stated position.

This is one of those times where it's extremely valuable to call your senator and ask for their position -- almost certainly it will push the undecideds to make the right choice. Public whip counts like these have a way of whipping politicians into one direction or another.

Save the Internet has a very nifty search tool for finding the contact info for your senator. Use it.
