It's all about the OIL. Here's another one to sign--Quick! Before they vote on this BUSH BUDDY!

In my inbox, this petition request follows on the heels of Babs Boxer's petition. Don't let the White House Clampetts gone MAD bunch sneak this one by you.

Dear Medbh,
While you've no doubt heard about the Senate's controversial vote last week to allow oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, I want to tell you about a sneaky assault on the environment being waged largelyoutside of the public eye -- President Bush's aggressive campaign to stack the federal courts with anti-environmentjudges.
Sign the petition: http://www.care2.com/go/z/22403
The U.S. Senate is gearing up for a showdown vote on the nomination of William Myers, a former mining industry lobbyist, to be a senior federal judge. Even though the Senate rejected Myers' nomination last year, Bush has re-nominated him, betting that a bigger Republican majority since last November's election will help Myersgain approval this time around.

Myers' record is one of anti-environmental extremism -- he's called parts of the Clean Water Act unconstitutional, and consistently sided with big corporate polluters when he worked as a Bush-appointed Interior Department official.If confirmed, Myers will likely be undermining environmental laws for decades to come! The full Senate is expected vote on the appointment as early as next week - so your action is urgently needed!
Tell your Senators to reject a lifetime judicial appointment for William Myers!
