As promised to various members of the media, I just wrote a 2000 word explantion of yesterday's House activities. Lo and behold, Luddite that I am, when I attempted to post it, I appear to have lost it all. I'll try to recreate it tomorrow (the second writing is always better). In the meantime, here's one email I received from someone who apparently understands quite well. I've left in errors and deleted the last name. Here's my response first.
Thanks. Someone actually accused me of being anti-semitic. I've done more than 40 hours filming Nazi, Communist, and Kaiser atrocities in and around Berlin! I'll run footage of a trip to Essen and a synagogue destroyed in Kristillnacht on Liberty Express next week... Channel23 Manchester and on the web at vimeo.com/channels/libertyx.

Thank you Rep. Valencourt for attempting to stand up for the average citizen! Political Correctness in this country is being a Nazie, and what you said was responding in a patriotic way to emphasize the Nazie tactics preventing Representsive like yourself to act for the citizens of America. It is wrong and nonrepresentative for the citizens of New Hampshire to have the Housespeaker manipulate other Representatives! I don't know if I am in your distrect, but you got my vote anyway! In fact I wish you were the Presidential Candidate!
