    Kerry and top Democrats are calling for a filibuster to block Alito's nomination

    it's time the GOP stopped pussy footing around with these clowns and change the rule of the Senate that requires 60 votes for a cloture vote.

    I doubt they have enough votes to pull it off. Kerry is posturing for his '08 run. Kennedy is just being Kennedy and the rest (having drunk deeply of the coolaid) are following along like sheep.
