Turley bloggers we have arrived. Stephen Colbert last night embraced my testimony against the D.C. voting rights bill with the type of clinging and infectious hug not seen since the Sadie Hawkins dances at the French Leper Colony.
Unfortunately, Colbert promptly sold out his opposition to the bill after being offered a key to the city of Washington D.C. by Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton. My gift of a George Washington soap-on-a-rope appears to have been rejection as an insufficient gratuity.
Here is Colbert before his acceptance of the key (which, Stephen, will open nothing but a window on your soul):
I agree with George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley who told Congress that, while he finds D.C.’s lack of representation “incredibly offense,” the voting rights bill is “flagrantly unconstitutional.”
That is not a contradiction. Just further evidence that our Founding Fathers were complete douche bags.
Actually, I would have to disagree with conclusion as to all (as opposed to a few) of the Framers. Here is my last testimony before the House of Representatives.
