Radio Iowa: Murphy & his "Irish temper"
Excerpted from this post at Radio Iowa
House Speaker Pat Murphy (D-Dubuque) just talked with a gaggle of
reporters behind the House chamber. The last question came from James
Q. Lynch of The Cedar Rapids Gazette who asked Murphy: "What was the
highlight of your weekend?" Murphy paused, for several seconds, and --
since I'd interviewed him this morning -- I asked if the highlight
might have been the dinner he got to have with his wife on Sunday
night. Murphy picked up that story and then praised the 25 Democrats
who volunteered to stay in DSM this weekend to "spell" him as the
voting machine in the House remained open.
