Sen. David Vitter's wasting no time swatting at a potential challenger -- and using the possibility of that challenge as the center of a fundraising appeal.

The news that Rep. Charlie Melancon may decide to challenge Vitter for his Senate seat in 2010 is only a week old, but already Vitter is sending his own supporters fundraising appeals in which he calls Melancon "Obama's close ally" and warning of the possibility of a "filibuster-proof, unchecked power in the U.S. Senate that would force their radical agenda upon us all.

"But I am standing in the way of that,"

Vitter concludes, reassuringly.
