Shea-Porter Smacks Down NH GOP Chair

Take notes, Congressional Democrats, THIS is how you do it.

Concord (NH) Monitor:

The war of words between GOP Chairman Fergus Cullen and Rep. Carol Shea-Porter continues.

Last week, Cullen criticized Shea-Porter's recent speech on the House floor, saying it undermined U.S. troops. Shea-Porter called on Cullen to retract his statement.

Yesterday, Cullen declined to do so. "If she's going to be against this war, she should have the courage of her convictions and vote to end funding," Cullen said.

He described last week's House debate on a resolution expressing congressional disapproval of President Bush's troop surge in Iraq as "shameful."

Shea-Porter hit back: "If Fergus Cullen has the courage of his convictions, he should go enlist, because they're having trouble meeting their quota. He's young, he's single and he's healthy. If he needs to know where the recruiters are, call me."

Although she opposes the war, Shea-Porter said, she's "working in a bipartisan manner to protect the troops and keep them funded with everything they need."

That's what I'm talking about. Howie Klein of DownWithTyranny is a big fan of Carol Shea-Porter as well, and gives more reason to support her.
