Perhaps medication would be able to take care of the mood swings displayed by the New Hampshire House of Representatives.

Carol Paul: The wife of the Texas congressman/presidential candidate is reported to have been shoved by a reporter amid the throngs of media at Moe Joe's diner in Manchester.

D.J. Bettencourt: Because of a tight budget and a potential $50 million revenue loss, the House Majority Leader admits it may not be possible for lawmakers to meet their promise to reduce the state tax burden on businesses before the next election.
Jim Forsythe: The first-term Republican state senator from Strafford announces he won't seek re-election in November "for personal reasons."
Gary Lambert: The Republican state senator from Nashua announces that he too will be stepping down after one term, after being reinstated as a colonel in the Marine Corps Reserves.
Dick Patten: The Concord city councilor feels the heat after being accused of intervening in the disposition of a friend's traffic ticket.
