Reid has 49 votes: Here are the numbers to call, and be polite 

Of course, Correntians are always polite, what am I thinking?

Cutting and pasting from Kos, since it's an emergency:

According to today's Roll Call (as quoted in ABC's "the Note"), Reid has 49 votes to maintain the filibuster (including Snowe, Chafee, McCain, and Collins.)

He needs 2 more votes. Roll Call identifies Warner, Specter, Hagel, and Dewine as the "swing" votes.

If you go over to Free Republic, they are organizing telephone campaigns to contact the affected senators.

We need to be calling as well, and making sure that the right-wing noise machine doesn't drown us out.

Expect to be asked where you are calling from. And be sure to sound reasonable. I try to sound like a "moderate" voter who might pull the lever for a Republican under the right circumstances.

Tip: remember that *67 blocks caller id to most offices.
