On Behalf of the Disenfranchised

Yes, as you may have heard, DC and the other non-state (read territory) delegates are getting their pretend voting right back. Yes, back under another majority Democratic Congress, the non-state delegates were given the opportunity to vote on things that didn't matter. Well, Mr. Gingrich ditched that pretty quickly when the majority changed and, while he did a lot of crappy things to DC under his reign, I can only mourn the loss of patronizing pretend rights so much. Well, they're back! Yes - the non-state delegates, the disenfranchised (DC) and the untaxed (territories)can now vote again. As long as it's only on amendments to original legislation and does not affect the outcome of the vote. Wow. I feel so much less oppressed now.
