Besides calling the senate office, folks should call the state chair and county chair of the senator's party.  ...  It would let the senator know that folks know how to do more than get riled up over an issue.  Someone who tracks down his county chairman is a lot more likely to be a primary voter ...

Update--Grand Bargaineer on the Run: 1) They're parodying Sen. Lindsey Graham's newfound last-minute  symbolic toughness  on immigration over at The Corner. ... 2) More than one source says that on Hannity's radio show Sen. Voinovich seemed genuinely rattled by the volume of phone calls to his offices by opponents of the immigration bill. That may or may not make him more likely to oppose the bill. But it's not going unnoticed. Too late to stop now. ... 3) More on the bogosity of the "touchback" gimmick--and other tough-seeming aspects of Sen. Graham's suddenly essential amendment-- here. ... 4) Malkin provides diligent running commentary. Senator Ensign appears to be a focus of concern. ... He seems to be playing some sort of game with his two second-order amendments here. (If they pass, will he have an excuse to vote "yes.") ...  3:41 A.M.

What They Understand: Hot Air has a video plan of action  for Republicans who want to do something more than phone or email their Senators. It's simple but could be high-impact. ...

P.S.: The ad says,

"Money seems to be the one thing our politicians understand."
