Sweeps week in Albany!

My brother points out that C-SPAN could probably quadruple their ratings if they decided instead to broadcast proceedings at the New York Senate, as Planet Albany's account illustrates. The New York Times' also has a report on a farce that's simultaneously amusing and enraging.

And yet people remain mystified why I vote 'third party.'

Civil war in Albany! I hope the State Troopers and the National Guard units are not co-opted by any of the sides in this power struggle.

Well Spitzer did use the state police to spy on the then-Republican senate leader (who himself was doing some dodgy things which everyone forgot about because of the way it was found out)...
