Eleanor Holmes Norton Invites Stephen Colbert To Binge Drink With Her

by Riley Waggaman

This is irresponsible and encourages America’s young people to drink alcohol until they are poisoned:

D.C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton has issued a challenge to Stephen Colbert: See if you can handle “Eleanor’s Revenge.”

Norton—who has an ongoing feud with Colbert over his jokes about D.C.’s lack of voting rights—has sent out a “set of messages” to Colbert to see if he’ll join her this weekend at D.C. bar The Passenger to take a new shot created in her honor called “Eleanor’s Revenge.”

“We never expected this drink, but it’s memorializing very well this spat between Stephen Colbert and I,” Norton told POLITICO. No word what’s in it, but Norton said she will be there on Saturday to try it and make sure the boozy beverage is “strong enough.”

No mortal drink is strong enough for Eleanor Holmes Norton.

Grammar FAIL, Ms Holmes-Norton, you old tax cheat, you.

In her defense, she'd already had 3 Eleanor's Revenges when she gave that quote (after 4, she says "zwischen Stephen Colbert und ich").

Never name a cocktail anything's "revenge." Makes it sound all mornin'after-ey and shit.

The fact that Joe "You Lie!" Miller and half of the Texas congressional delegation gets an actual vote and this woman does not is a true American tragedy.

I don't get why folks keep calling South Carolina's Finest Joe Wilson Joe Miller. Joe The Miller is the one up in Igloostan/Tundraska.

Every time I open a box of teabags, they all look identical.

The "Better know a district" segment with her in it is the best television I've ever seen on my computer.

"Binge" drinking–as if there was any other way to consume liquor.

Hold on lady; after November 2nd most Americans will really have a reason to binge drink!

No taxation without representation! Free DeeCee!

Oh, and us black people don't "binge drink," we simply "get fucked up."
