If you're unavailable, the SLDN is asking you to call the Capitol switchboard (202) 224-3121 and say the following:
–Tell your senators to vote with Sen. Reid and Sen. Carl Levin in opposing the filibuster, defeat amendments to strike repeal, and defeat any crippling amendments.
–Senators should follow the lead of Sen. Carl Levin who will be managing the defense bill.
–It is critical that the vote on “final passage” takes place before senators leave for the election recess.
Will U join GaGa in her effort to repeal Don't Ask, Don't Tell?
Contrary to false reports that Taylor Swifthad a "heads up" onKanye West's sexist and offensive lyric about her in his new song, the singer's publicist tells us that is not true.
Swift's rep, Tree Paine, tells PerezHilton.com:
"Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single Famous on her Twitter account. She declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message. Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, 'I made that bitch famous.'"
