Rep. Don Young objects to colonial justice

Rep Don Young, on the conviction of crotchety old man and (soon to be former) Senator Ted Stevens: (via DCist)
"You have to understand that this was not a jury of his peers. It was in Washington, D.C. , which most people in Washington, D.C., don't look very favorably on the Congress because we run them. I don't know why anybody didn't bring that out. They're not a self-governing city like they say they are. We actually make decisions for them. Makes us very, very suspicious."
Frankly Don, I've been wondering why no one has "brought this out" for a very long time.

In fairness, he could have just been in a bad mood. Maybe his wife got mad that the computers were making noises noise again. Or that you got her sunflower seeds when she meant pumpkin seeds. Or that you didn't open the door for him even though he didn't make it clear where he was going. Or another revelations from one of the funniest things ever leaked to the internets.
