    Paul Zukerberg called D.C. a "Plantation".

    Now thats the truth and I know a couple of field "workers". I really have another name for them but I will be nice and not called them ...

    I would think this is a more current and problematic issue related to the 4/23 at-large race.

    @NONAME-WHY WOULD YOU THINK THAT UNLESS YOU ARE GAY OR REPUBLICAN?

    TO COMPARE DONORS OF MARA A WHITE, GAY, CONSERVATIVE, WHO IS NOT FROM HERE, WHO ONLY WANTS TO MOVE FORWARD THE CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN AGENDA IN A CITY WHERE WE OVERWHELMING VOTE DEM (98% VOTED FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA). EVEN THOUGH HE GAVE THE MONEY BACK HE STILL IDENTIFIES WITH THE SAME FOLK WHO GAVE HIM OR CONTINUE TO GIVE HIM MONEY. NO ONE FROM THE CITY IDENTIFIES WITH THIS CHUMP.

    THERE ARE NO INROADS HERE. MARA AND HIS REDUMBLICAN COHORTS WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PUT STAKES IN THE GROUND HERE. FOLK KNOW GAYTANIA IS A REPUBLICAN BUT BECAME AN INDEPENDENT TO WIN THE RACE SO WE ARE NOT GOING TO FALL FOR THE OKIE DOKE A SECOND TIME. AS FOR THAT FAKE ASS BAMMA THIES ALL HE IS TRYING TO DO IS PUT SHIT IN THE GAME BY WRITING THAT LAME ASS SHIT THAT NO ONE READS.

    AS FOR SILVERMAN’S MINOR CONTRIBUTOR SINCLOWN SHITSTAIN HIS PERSONAL VIEWS ON HOMOSEXUALITY ARE NOT THE SAME AS SILVERMAN’S. SO HIS CONTRIBUTION WILL NOT SWAY HER OR FORCE HER VOTE ON ANYTHING. SHE’S ALSO A JEW FROM B’MO AND THERE ARE WAY MORE FOLKS HERE OF THAT ILK WHO WILL IDENTIFY WITH HER THAN THOSE THANGS FOR MARA.

    Paul Zukerberg is right on point.

    DC is a "plantation" with 72% of its government workers living outside of the city. Shameful!

    The "straw boss" city council does nothing but collect their checks and pretend to help people!

  • drez

    Accepting money from a local business person is not the same as accepting money from a national organization with an agenda that 95% of local voters disagree with.
    I'm not even allowing it to sit on the same level as Fenty's PFLAG/PFOX screw-up.

    But I will give Mara credit for returning the money. As for Silverman, I'd wait to see whether Skinner gets any special treatment. My guess is that he won't. Both because of who Elissa is, and the fact that even corrupt newby at large councilmembers don't have the ability to steer contracts.

  • Ibinbeeinghere

    Noodlez is a racist, homophobic joke and he exposes the hypocricy of the entire black community when he insults all other races/gays but cries foul and racism whenever a black politician is portrayed in poor light, like going to prison for stealing $300K from poor kids. Gaytania? How about Anegra Bonds? Is that fair or funny?

  • truth hurts

    Thanks noodlez for responding no name's (aka Lukas and a couple other monikers)nonsense. I think you got his/her favorite candidate wrong, though. Pretty sure nn's guy is Frumin based on prior comments (under other screen names).

  • Typical DC BS

    Yup, Dumocrats have done SUUUUCH a good job running DC here. Maybe the denizens of DC need to use what little brain power they possess to realize you need at LEAST a strong two party system to keep the ruling party on it's toes and somewhat honest.

  • noodlez

    @COMMENTER #6-HOMEBOY THE WHINING ABOUT MY COMMENTS ARE SO 2010 THAT BEING SAID ALL THAT BULLSHIT YOU SPEWED I SEE YOU DIDN'T REFUTE MY COMMENT.

    FOR THE RECORD I DON'T CRY FOUL OR RACISM IF THEY ARE PORTRAYED IN A POOR LIGHT. I LET IT BE KNOWN EMPHATICALLY THAT BLACK POLITICIANS IN DC OR IN OTHER PARTS OF THE COUNTRY ARE UNFAIRLY TARGETED WHEN THERE ARE WHITE POLITICIANS DOING THE SAME THING OR SOMETHING EVEN WORSE. FYI-INSULTS ARE IN THE EYES/EARS OF THE BEHOLDER.

    TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION I THINK IT'S FUNNY AND CREATIVE BUT OTHERS MAY NOT AND THAT IS SOMETHING YOU HAVE TO DEAL WITH. OH YEAH YOUR LIL' WORDS DON'T HURT ME DUDE IM A NATIVE WASHINGTONIAN.
