The Needle: D.C. Falls Victim to Liberalism

Damn Liberals: An Oklahoma woman called in to C-SPAN's Washington Journal Friday when Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton was a guest, and said the world is "just totally embarrassed at what liberalism has done to Washington, D.C." The woman cited the homeless people and the alcoholics she saw on the streets when visiting the city to support her thesis that liberalism has ruined D.C. She even noted the “hoard of hundreds of black people” she spotted in line outside the local courthouse supposedly awaiting trial. Ultimately, the Oklahoma woman told Norton she  was appalled by the "No Taxation Without Representation" license plates—though not in the way most people are appalled by the protesting motto—and thought D.C. should be put back under Congress' control. -7
