Taxation without Representation

Washington, DC held a non-binding presidential primary yesterday, mostly to draw attention to the fact that residents of the city have do not representation in congress. Dean, who has expressed support for DC congressional representation, won, and Al Sharpton came in second. Five of the other contenders opted out of the race entirely, signaling their disregard for DC residents.

Personally, I find it disgraceful that residents of our capital city have are second-class citizens in the political arena. It's high-time someone fixed this.
