Spinning fifth graders...

At a visit to a middle school in Pawling earlier this month, Sue tried to explain the finer points of the Kyoto Protocol to a group of fifth graders according to this article in the Pawling News Chronicle. But the kids weren't buying Sue's lame excuses about the Kyoto Protocol being "very complicated" -- so complicated that these fifth graders couldn't possibly comprehend the intricacies. According to the article, Kelly told the kids that signing the treaty would lead to lost jobs and lost productivity. "You need to understand how such an international treaty affects the United does have a very broad-range effect, and it does mean that some people may not have jobs because their factories may close." I suppose we could look on the bright side -- at least she didn't pull a Dan Quayle and try to teach the kids a new way to spell potato.

Good news...

It seems like Democrats on the national stage are starting to pay attention to NY's 19th CD, based on this article in Thursday's New York Sun. The article meanders a bit, but the gist of it is that national Dems believe Sue Kelly is vulnerable. For the past six terms, Sue, who came in as part of the Gingrich Revolution back in 1994, hasn't faced what we'll politely call real competition. We're working on changing that in 2006.

Send Sue home!

Welcome to Take 19, the official blog of a group of concerned citizens in NY's 19th Congressional District who are actively working to defeat Sue Kelly in 2006. The election is closer than we think and it's time to join together to send Sue Kelly back to Katonah. Over the past week, Sue's been traveling around the district talking about all of this money that she's managed to bring home. Local papers have been covering her travels extensively. But what Sue hasn't been talking about is that last Friday she voted on a federal budget that cuts more than $20 billion from Medicaid -- a proposal that was narrowly approved by the House with the help of Sue and her buddy, Tom DeLay.
