Peaceniks jam DC phone lines

Today's Virtual March on Washington was a huge success according to its organizers, the Win Without War coalition and MoveOn.org. More than 400,000 people registered prior to the march, and more than 1,000,000 people faxed, e-mailed or called their senators to express their belief that Bush and Co haven't made a convincing case for war with Iraq. I contacted Minnesota' Democratic Senator Mark Dayton's office and had a nice, but brief talk with a harried phone worker. When I called Republican Senator Norm Coleman's office at 1 pm CST, not only had he forwarded his calls to voicemail, but the mailbox was full.
