Sweeney - Still In Hiding

Fresh off a successful stint of avoiding his constituents for any discussion on Social Security, Representative John Sweeney (R-NY) is apparently taking another vow of silence when it comes to his good friend Tom Delay. When the USAToday runs a headline saying Delay is in trouble, he's in trouble. So, today the Times Union editorial (registration required) calls for Sweeney to be "among the leaders of the movement for Mr. Delay to step down (as Majority Leader)." They want him to "take the high road". Trouble is, once you've been a defender of Tom "the hammer" Delay in the past, as Mr. Sweeney has, you are so far from the high road that its hard to find your way there.
