Sweeney & Baseball

Have you seen this nonsense yet? Congressman John Sweeney (R-NY-20th) prefers to deal with the celebrity world while upstate New York continues to drift. First it was the steroid nonsense, now this:
(Washington Post 28 June):Major League Baseball hasn't narrowed the list of the eight bidders seeking to buy the Washington Nationals and some Republicans on Capitol Hill already are hinting at revoking the league's antitrust exemption if billionaire financier George Soros, an ardent critic of President Bush and supporter of liberal causes, buys the team.

"It's not necessarily smart business sense to have anybody who is so polarizing in the political world," Rep. John E. Sweeney (R-N.Y.) said. "That goes for anybody, but especially as it relates to Major League Baseball because it's one of the few businesses that get incredibly special treatment from Congress and the federal government."

how about that.
