"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Lawmakers get hard messages

Sometimes the normal media avenues do not get the message across. I would not suggest running one of these through your printer, but the medium is appropriate to the thickness of the politicos skulls.

This from Morning Coffee:

WASHINGTON - Sometimes, mail call hits Congress like a ton of bricks - literally. One by one, opponents of illegal immigration have been sending lawmakers real, red bricks with angry messages written on the side: "Build a wall. Deport them all."

While hundreds of thousands of activists took to the streets Monday, lawmakers in Washington dealt with an increase in mail from supporters of a get-tough approach to illegal immigration. Sen. Wayne Allard, R-Colo., laughed about the heavy bricks he has found in his in-box, saying he'll have to weigh them against the letters and calls he receives from
both sides.

The Send-A-Brick Campaign logo is displayed on my blog should you wish to wish to hit your congressional representative with a brick (figuratively speaking).
