Shea-Porter says 'Now Way, No How!' in latest fundraising appeal

U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter's latest fundraising appeal:


The 2010 campaign should not be starting already, but it is. The Washington Republicans have said NO to President Obama, NO to the American agenda and NO to my re-election in 2010.

Several Republican opponents are now lined up at the gate to try to defeat me. And what is my response?


The Party of “NO” cannot turn our country back. I need you to help right now to show them that you support this new American agenda and that you support me.

Please show them that we are strong and united by clicking HERE and sending a contribution TODAY.

Please speak up by contributing. They are listening and we need to send a clear message right now.

NO WAY, NO HOW do we want to see the party of “NO” back.

NH House committee passes medical marijuana bill

From the New Hampshire House:

A House committee today recommended that the full House agree to let certain patients grow their own marijuana if their doctor recommends they use it to relieve certain medical conditions.
The so-called medical marijuana bill, House Bill 648, passed the House Health, Human Services and Elderly Affairs Committee on a 13 to 7 vote after agreeing to an amendment on a 15 to 5 vote.
Among other things, the amendment restricts the number of patients one “designated caregiver” can assist to one, down from the five allowed in the original bill. It also identifies out-of-staters who qualify while in New Hampshire as “visiting qualified patients,” a status that is only good for 30 days.
Patients would be allowed to have two ounces of marijuana in their possession.
Those who support the bill said it will help patients who suffer from several conditions, including cancer, multiple sclerosis or other chronic or terminal diseases, and keep them from having to take narcotics.
Opponents said it violates federal law, which classifies marijuana as a Class 1 dangerous drug.
The bill will go to the full House during session next week.

Palin polling in NH?

A blogger on Blue Hampshire is reporting that a friend received a robosurvey about Gov. Sarah Palin.

I haven’t heard anyone else receiving the same phone call but read the entire diary yourself at: Sarah Palin for President: It begins…with robopolling?
