On Chris Jansing's show Monday morning, MSNBC flashed head shots of a handful of new members of Congress and displayed Patrick Murphy, Iraq war vet who represented Northeast/Bucks County in Congress for two terms when mentioning Florida congressional seat holder, also named Patrick Murphy.

It happens all the time, says the former pol, now Fox Rothschild law firm attorney.

"It happened on election night when I was in Chicago. Congressman Brad Sherman, who I served with, called me to congratulate me on my win," he said.

He calls Florida's Murphy "Patrick Murphy 2.0" and says he's, "a great young leader."

"As long as my wife, Jenni, doesn't get us two confused," Murphy says he doesn't mind.
