Game ON!

Finally. Kerry's called for a filibuster:

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. John Kerry has decided to support a filibuster to block the nomination of Judge Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court, CNN's Congressional Correspondent Ed Henry reported Thursday.

Kerry, in Davos, Switzerland, to attend the World Economic Forum, was marshaling support in phone calls during the day, Henry said.

He announced his decision Wednesday to a group of Democratic senators, urging they join him, Henry said. Kerry also has the support of his fellow Massachusetts senator, Democrat Edward Kennedy.

Of course, CNN also quotes some "senior democrats" expressing concern that a filibuster could "backfire," to which my response is are you fucking nuts?!?! You're already as back as you can be fired, assholes. Take a stand, FOR ONCE.
