Patrick Murphy: preserving the American way in Philadelphia

patrick-murphy.jpgAnyone catch the best story of the month a couple weeks ago?

U.S. Congressman Patrick Murphy (D., Pa.), who serves the Philadelphia suburb of lower Bucks County, was the only dissenting vote in a House resolution congratulating the New York Giants on their victory in Super Bowl XLII.

As a former 700-level security guard and lifelong Eagles fan, I couldn’t, in good conscience, vote for the New York Giants. The only thing worse would have been a resolution honoring the Dallas Cowboys.

A 412 to 1 vote in meaningless, fluff legislation congratulating a sports franchise in a victory. I don’t care who you, that’s funny.
