Falwell Watch: Operation Target Warner

The Lynchburg News & Advance Reports that Jerry Falwell, despite stating twice that religion doesn't belong in politics, has Virginia's Senator John Warner in his sights. Why? You guessed it, the filibuster.

Falwell hopes to circle his wagons to fire off tens of thousands of emails to the US Senate in favor of the rule change.

Warner has repeatedly said that his vote on the so-called nuclear option will not be known until some sort of resolution is found, whether that be a compromise or floor-vote.

This isn't enough for Falwell: "We must create a nationwide groundswell of outrage immediately that will shake the stodgy U.S. Senate into action... The fact that John Warner is noncommittal at this point makes a lot of us concerned, I think he’s going to do the right thing.”

Luckily for Americans, Warner is old enough (and mature enough) to remember how Democrats were when they had power and how his party used those very same tactics they now advocate against them to rise to power.
