"U.S. Rep. John Sweeney has gotten one of the region’s best known lawyers to ask TV stations to pull a brutal MoveOn.Org ad against the congressman."
Well, it's not brutal. It's just plain honest.There was one especially good comment on the Capitol Confidential, too.
I had only seen the dumptruck ad, originally. But there is another, even better ad:
I used to think that Sweeney was just a steak-faced goon -kinda smarmy and idiotic. But now, he’s acting like a pathetic wimp. “Oh, no, the mean people said something bad about me.” It’s pathetic. If you got nothing to hide, then you’ve got nothing to defend.
As Andrew C. White might say, ‘the lady doth protest too much methinks.’
The fact is he’s got a paper trail of wheeling and dealing with convicted corrupt Republicans like Jack Abramoff and Duke Cunningham. No, these are not the values and character of upstate New York.
It’s as simple as this: The GOP controls every branch of gov’t. If you think everything in Iraq and here in America is honky-dory, then vote for the Republicans who brought all of this on us.
If not, then vote for a system of checks and balances. Send a respectable Dem to Congress, Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand - this is the only way to start changing course.
So, they simply point out that he's getting money from defense contractors, and that he avoids voting to censure them. Both readily verifiable. This is exactly what the public discourse is supposed to point out.
But you just let the good times roll, Rep. whiney baby. I'm sure glad you think you're good enough to represent us in Washington. Just seems you're more interested in representing your lobbyist pals.
