The previously good-for-nothing U.S. Senate has today passed the D.C. Voting Rights Bill, by a vote of 61-37. District resident have been getting taxed, and drafted into wars, and held subject to the Supreme Court's rulings on gun laws, all without so much as a vote in Congress. Now finally, after only 200 years or so, representational democracy has found its way to the nation's capital. The nearly 600,000 American citizens will now get some representation to go with their aforementioned taxation.
License plates must now be changed. And plans for a Potomac Tea Party must unfortunately be canceled.
