Video: Colbert interviews Eleanor Holmes Norton

Good stuff.

It’s really a shame about the White House Correspondents Dinner. “Strangers With Candy” was one of my favorite shows, and Colbert was the best thing in it. He’s a brilliant comedian.

It’s just … you know.

Lot of broken friendships these past five years. This is no different, really. But we should still give credit when credit is due.

I’ll see the movie. For old time’s sake.

If you’re pressed for time, skip the first two minutes. They’re just introductory crap.

One of his better ones for sure.

I really have to hand it to the Rep from D.C. All in good fun but, the question still remains, why don’t they have congressional rights? Are they American citizens or not?

She was great. It was a pleasure seeing her using his own tactics against him. Good on Eleanor.

That can’t be real??

I took Colbert off of my TiVo schedule when he pulled that idiotic stunt at the correspondent dinner.
But I’ll give it up. That is the funniest interview I’ve ever seen. And frankly, kudos to the lady from D.C. She was equally funny.
Good stuff.

I’ve taken to not watching The Daily Show as it’s become predictible and preachy, but The Colbert Report is consistently excellent. The only thing about SC that sticks in my craw is, he is a gunbanner.

Great stuff, they work extremely well together , kinda neopolitan…….. without the strawberry.

Babs, Residents of DC are US Citizens, but the founders established it the way it is on purpose. We needed a capitol somewhere, but the paranoa was that whatever state housed it would have undue power.

So a (then) centrally-located rectangle was carved off from MD & VA, consisting at the time of mostly useless swampland. It was to be forever “Federal” land, not part of any state.

Personally, I think we could allow their “non-voting” representative to vote – but I don’t know of a fix for Senate representation. They’re too small & dependent on the Fed gov’t to merit statehood, and the original injunction to keep DC seperate from any state may not be a bad idea.

Citizens who choose to permanently live in other places not-States also don’t get to vote for Senate/House races. Perhaps, like with Puerto Rico, we could refrain from collecting income-tax on permanent residents – to render the taxation/representation point moot?
