Local Republicans are freaking out over Sweeney ---and the big question now becomes who they'll run against Gillibrand in 2008. Here's an idea: how about Fox 23 morning news anchor Mark Baker? Baker has loads of campaign experience, having run for congress three times back in Illinois. He may be a newcomer, but what the hell, that didn't stop Hillary Clinton, did it? As far as we know, Baker hasn't beaten up his wife or anything, or showed up in drunken frat pictures, so he already has a big leg up on the guy Wonkette calls Slappin' John McSlappy Sweeney. As far as we know, the worst Baker has done is work as a news anchor, but we're guessing that voters can manage to look past that blemish on his resume.
