Krusty Konservative: Murphy's Madness

Excerpted from this post at Krusty Konservative

If the defeat of the Prevailing Wage legislation wasn't enough,
Speaker of the House Pat Murphy drew more attention to the situation
by staging a sit in all weekend long in hopes to switch a no vote to a
yes vote and pass the legislation. There is just one problem with his
strategy; there is no way he comes out looking good. And while I'm
sure he would celebrate the 51st vote, the court of public opinion
would bemoan the fact that Murphy had to resort to strong arm tactics
and a rules loophole to get his way. Today I want to discuss the
fallout, and the winners and losers of what transpired at the Capitol
on Friday night and throughout the weekend.
