Sweeney Sighting

So, John Sweeney (R-Delay) has been missing in action up here in NY. Not much to say on social security and the rest. And then the Times Union wrote an editorial that actually called for him to take the lead in asking Tom Delay to step down as Majority Leader because Tom Delay is a liar, likes to threaten judges, says that the idea of separation of church and state is wrong...among other things. Well, Sweeney sure is taking the lead....in rallying support for The Hammer.

Read it and weep New York, this is our guy.

"Reps. Tom Feeney (R-Fla.) and John Sweeney (R-N.Y.) have been meeting with 30 House Republicans over the past few weeks to coordinate a more aggressive strategy to defend Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas), according to a Republican source familiar with the meetings. "

So with all that has been going down, and the fact that Delay is an out of control nut, things actually look good for someone to be able to beat Delay back in Texas in '06 (if he lasts that long). So the question is, if good old red texans can get rid of their problem Republican representative, shouldn't a blue state like NY be able to do the same?

Thanks to reader Mike for pointing out this article.
