OK, we need to get on this on quickly

I missed it, but A Keyboard and a .45 didn't. The confirmation hearing of Eric Holder, the Big O's choice for Attorney General, starts tomorrow.

This is big. Holder has a history of anti-gun activities, and allowing him in this position will be a big blow to gun owners nationwide. The amount of damage he could do is staggering.

A Keyboard and a .45 has a handy post with the contact links for all the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee. He billed it as "making it easy for you". I'm going to make it even easier--here's something you can use on the form:

Dear Sen. [so-and-so]:

I'll be up front--I can't vote for you. I don't live in [your state].

However, I, along with millions of other law-abiding American gun owners, are counting on your help. We're asking you to oppose the nomination of Eric Holder for Attorney General.

Holder has a long record of opposition of gun ownership, a right guaranteed by the Second Amendment. On the eve of what will be the most anti-gun owner administration in our history, we can not allow a man with the views espoused by Mr. Holder in a position of such power.

Please oppose the nomination of Eric Holder. Thanks.
I've sent this one to all of the Republican members of the committee. Feel free to modify it as you see fit. I added a little parenthetical note after the part about not living there for senators from states I have visited.

My evil twin sent this one to all of the Democrat members of the committee:

Dear Sen. [Leftist SOB]:

I'll be up front--I can't vote for you. I don't live in [your Socialist-leaning state].

However, I, along with millions of other Americans who value justice under the law, are counting on your help. We're asking you to oppose the nomination of Eric Holder for Attorney General.

Mr. Holder was instrumental in obtaining a presidential pardon for Marc Rich, a commodities trader who fled the country in 1983 rather than face trial on charges of tax evasion, racketeering and trading with the enemy. In these days where it is of critical importance that we bring criminals in our financial system to justice, this single act alone should disqualify him from holding this important office.

Please oppose the nomination of Eric Holder. Thanks.
Ya'll have at it.
