Rep. Chris Murphy comes out swinging against Republicans, supports Iraq resolution

People of the 5th district should be proud of their Congressman.

In the mist of the full-mode Republican smear machine against the Democrats (with leader of the pack Indiana Republican Rep. Steve Buyer implying that supporter of the Iraq resolution were "unpatriotic"), Rep Chris Murphy took the podium at 1:00 AM and promptly put the dishonest member of Congress in their place while offering his support for the resolution.

In order to get a true feeling of how intense the debate was between the two political parties when Murphy took the podium, view the videoclip and watch the atmosphere Murphy walked into by the end of the session. I couldn't post the entire tirade but this clips picks up when tension reached a boiling point.
