Senators, vote NO on torture

I'm disappointed that Condoleezza Rice has been named Secretary of State. If lying doesn't disqualify her from being our top diplomat, wouldn't being caught lying at least demonstrate her lack of the requisite skill? There's another fight, though, so let's stay in the ring: Alberto Gonzales went out of his way to find justification for torture. He directed an effort to declare international law invalid and to validate illegal presidential actions. He lied about all of this under oath. I oppose the confirmation of Gonzales as Attorney General, and I urge the Senate—especially my Senators, Boxer and Feinstein—to reject him.

Indeed!

You can send Feinstein an email here: http://feinstein.senate.gov/email.html

And Boxer here:

This page is tracking all the blogs that are opposing Gonzales... 393 of them at the moment.

Also: Feinstein has already voted against Gonzales in committee, and Boxer is expected to do so in the full Senate vote.
