McCain stabs us again

John McCain has just announced that he will not vote against a change to senate rules that prevents filibustering judicial nominations (link from Patterico). I wrote the following letter to him:
Mr. McCain, I lived in Arizona for some thirty years and always voted for you. I can't tell you how sorry I am about that. First, you take away my first-amendment rights to speak out about political candidates and try to effect elections, and now you are hindering the Republican effort to reverse the judicial tyranny that has taken over this country.

What could be a more mild reaction to the leftist usurpation of power than to simply replace the usurpers with honorable judges? But you won't even support such a mild and peaceful counter-revolution.

You limit our rights to free speech, but not the rights of the media that opposes us. We win a majority even so handicapped and even so you would deny us the right that the constitution provides --for the majority to appoint judges.

What remedy would you leave us, short of violence?
