Swillionaires for Sweeney

Head Swiller

Sorry I missed this political protest:

Saratoga Springs: Protest Rep. Sweeney fundraiser with McCain

"Let's Protest Sweeney and the corrupt Republican agenda of Rove, Delay, Cheney, Bush & Abramoff. Unlike Sweeney, who led a violent gang of thugs in Miami in 2000 with the order to shut down the vote recounting, we will be nonviolent."

"Feel free to bring your own signs about corruption and any aspect of the Republican agenda. Bring mops & brooms to hold with the signs, to symbolize a call for cleaning up corruption, & clean elections campaign finance reform. We'll have plenty of extra signs, mops & brooms."

"There may be creative street theater activities, such as Billionaires for Bush (or Swillionaires for Sweeney), or holding an 'auction' selling favors to cronies."

Swillionaires is such a great word, especially given Sweeney's recent frat party shenanigans. Connotations of pork and alcohol, with undertones of plain old dirtiness. Well done activists.
