Justice Sunday: the Skinny

We could hardly bear the disappointment of not watching our favorite clerics decry the treason of the American judiciary and raise the battlecry against it from the Virgin Megachurch in Kentucky. But we'll settle for what we can get. Crooks and Liars has the links to the Frist and Donahue portions of the show, and Reuters has a rundown of the event. I feel so sorry for Senators' receptionists tomorrow, cuz there's a tropical shitstorm brewin' in the Gulf:
Dr. Al Mohler, president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, portrayed minority Democrats and "about six or eight very squishy Republicans" as obstructionists to judicial appointments.

Mohler said those senators need to hear from conservatives who are concerned about the courts and blocked judicial appointments.

"Let them know that you don't want them to delay and you don't want them to postpone," Mohler said. "Tell them that you care and that you will remember how they vote."
So it begins.

UPDATE: Justice Sunday Dobson video (also via Crooks and Liars—keep checking them for more segments).

UPDATE (fun and games edition): The Family Research Council has a list of Democratic luminaries calling for up-and-down votes on judicial nominees and fussing about blocking nominees with fillibusters. You know, back when the Republicans didn't want certain nominees of a Democratic president to get to the floor....
