Channel 2 WGRZ-TV un-vites me from debate because I write satire

I got another letter today from local NBC affiliate WGRZ–this time it was unopened, in the mailbox.  It reads:

As you are aware, WGRZ-TV and the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle invited the candidates for the 26th congressional district to a debate at the WGRZ-TV studios on May 12th. In fact, after a certified letter to your business, the Buffalo Beast, was returned to our station, we sent Scott Levin to your home to personally make sure you were given every opportunity to respond and participate.

Major parties tell you to tighten your belt, so the corporate pigs may feast

I’m fed up with Democrat and Republican lies. One of those lies? That it’s time America had an “adult conversation” about our budget and the deficit. The conversation goes like this: Our country’s broke and we, the people, have to reduce our living standard to pay for corporate greed.

Of course, they’d never use that kind of honest language. But throughout the land workers are being denied their collective bargaining rights, social programs are on the chopping block — even children are being kicked off of food stamps! At the same time, insanely wealthy corporations who should pay their fair share, often pay no taxes at all.

Transsexual jumps on local pol

I’m in an odd position. I’m a reporter, but I’m also running for political office—the U.S. House of Representatives. I have so much dirt on myself and I can’t do a thing with it! Lurid sex, drug use, subversive activities…all prime rib to a reporter; all poison to a politician. But I’ve already written on those topics. There’s no new news there. As a recent BEAST commenter wrote, I’m the only candidate who’s scandal-proof. Or so I thought.

An open letter to Andrew C. White




Daily Kos Diarist (and Democratic Committee Chair) is Seriously Confused


Dear Andrew C. White,

I don’t know who you are, or why you’re trying to harsh my Congress buzz, but you’re doing it wrong.

Firstly, you give me grief for spelling my campaign website, MurphycanhasCongress.com, incorrectly. You think it should be “can haz”. While many people write it that way, one only need visit icanhascheezburger.com to see that it’s spelled “has”.

Fail, as the kids say.

Murphy can has Congress?




Dear BEAST fiends,

Sorry I haven’t posted anything lately. We have hours of video and pages of notes from the trip to Wisconsin, but something crazy happened when we got back, which has kept me a little busy.

I’ll have a full report from my week in Madtown eventually–with updates on the situation there and what’s bound to be a very cool documentary by my videographer Trotsky. But long story short:  the union-crushing bill the State Senate & Assembly recently crammed through, in a most illegal fashion, has been temporarily blocked by Judge Maryann Sumi of the Dane County Circuit Court in Madison. That’s awesome. How a higher court will rule is unknown, but the idea is to keep it tied up in the legal system until some of the bastard Senate Republicans can be recalled. And many will be. More on Wisconsin later.
