This past Friday was the season premiere of Bill Maher's tv show. Pennsylvania politics was mentioned twice. Maher referred to Curt Weldon's comment about fighting terrorists in our grocery stores. Max Cleland was one of the panelists and he mentioned that he would be back in Pennsylvania at the end of Sept. to campaign for John Murtha (press release). Cleland has also campaigned for suburban Philadelphia candidates Bryan Lentz (161st state house), Paul Lang (6th state senate) and Patrick Murphy (8th congressional district). No word on whether or not he will stop by our area on his next trip.
