Find your Senators' phone number here, and call them:

What should we call this group? Give me some names. One Democrat, the rest Republicans. That's not surprising. The Party of the _ _ _ _ I'm reminded of a certain Clint Eastwood movie.

AmericaBlog says: That would be 27% of the Republican Senators who refused to oppose lynching, vs. 2% of the Democrats. Enough said.

Atrios says : Pro Lynching

Daily Kos says: Who didn't sign lynching bill?

The Carpetbagger says: Good news, bad news on the lynching apology.

Law Dork says: Dirty Dozen? (Or, uh, 21?)

Orcinus says: Failing in the present. It's an excellent read about the history of the non-anti-lynching bill

The Right wing is mostly silent on this so far today: Al Franken's speech from the Talker's Magazine Party was very popular.

Instapundit links to two others who say- the Supreme Court which owes the apology. And of course a note about Robert Byrd
