Murray Hill Inc. declares for Congress!

It was only a matter of days... but now there's a corporation running for Congress. Murray Hill Inc., which in everyday life is a creative consulting and design firm, has thrown its... um... not its hat, it doesn't have a head... or is it "their hat"... well, whatever.

And here's the statement: "Until now, corporations only influenced politics with high-paid lobbyists and backroom deals. But today, thanks to an enlightened supreme court, corporations now have all the rights the founding fathers meant for us. That's why Murray Hill Incorporated is taking democracy's next step-- running for Congress."

On the personal side, Murray Hill Inc.'s hobbies are capitalism, and its or possibly their favorite book is "Atlas Shrugged."

However, Murray is not the first corporation to take this momentous step. In 2008, Rich-CorporateSon Inc., a feisty Oregon institution incorporated by Portland's End Corporate Personhood Action Group, ran for Governor, and had a few of his proxies debate Thom Hartmann, with piano accompaniment. It's a long video but fun to watch with lots of good background on this important issue.
