Advice for Kirsten Gillibrand

Tags: Elections 2006, Congress, John Sweeney, 20th CD Race, Kirsten Gillibrand
I read on 20TrueBlue that there will be NO debate between Congressman John Sweeney and challenger Kirsten Gillibrand. Perhaps Ms. Gillibrand would be wise to borrow a move from John Hall(NY-19) and debate an empty chair! Think about it. Even if her campaign just did a mash-up mock-up debate for her TV spots, it would stick in people's heads! Whattaya think, Kirsten?

  1. That was a suburb move by Hall's camp and WRNN! I know who I would be voting for in that election. John Hall is "Still the One"! Kirsten should try the same thing.

  5. Debating an empty chair is a good alternative to debating an empty suit.

  7. Sweeney is SCARED to debate. He is sitting pretty at the moment. But just wait. I hear a newspaper has the goods on him.

  8. I hope John Hall beats that old bat Sue Kelly! Washington needs young blood and representatives who are not in the shadow of Mark Foley!

  9. I just got a recorded phone call tonight from Kirsten Gillibrand. I live in Albany and am a registered Democrat. The call is asking me for help in her efforts by volunteering in her campaign and to send George W a message. Paid for by the Democratic Committee....

  10. House candidate Kirsten Gillibrand has an ad online ridiculing Rep. John E. Sweeney (R-N.Y.) for attending a late-night fraternity party. "What's a 50-year-old man doing at a frat party anyway?" one young woman asks, as a faux Sweeney boogies behind her to the Beastie Boys. "Totally creeping me out!" another responds.

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
