These 18 Democrats voted “Yes” on cloture, thus paving the way for Samuel Alito’s elevation to the Supreme Court.

Akaka (HI), Baucus (MT), Bingaman (NM), Byrd (WV), Cantwell (WA), Carper (DE), Dorgan (ND), Inouye (HI), Johnson (SD), Kohl (WI), Landrieu (LA), Lieberman (CT), Lincoln (AR), Nelson (FL), Nelson (NE), Pryor (AR), Rockefeller (WV), Salazar (CO)

Do you live in one of these states? Did you vote for one of these Democrats? Call and tell them (nicely, please) how disappointed you are in their unprincipled approach to our country’s future. (888-355-3588 or 888-818-6641) And, for those who will claim that they don’t support Alito, tell them voting “No” on Tuesday after voting “Yes” on Monday is the kind of triangulation real Democrats won’t stomach.

If you are lucky enough to have supported one or two of the 25 Democrats who tried to sustain a filibuster, you can call, too. Say “thank you,” because it’s nice to be noticed.
