Some truthiness on the way
When I got the chance to sit down with Eleanor Holmes Norton last weekend, I knew that I'd end the interview with a question about Stephen Colbert and the rumors that he'd host a rally on the Mall in response to Glenn Beck's "Restoring Honor" rally. Norton's a titan of the D.C. political scene and probably one of the most interesting people I've ever sat down and talked with -- the stories she has at her disposal: incredible -- but there's no denying that there's a significant slice of America that knows her as that lady that Colbert made fun of in his "Better Know a District" series. And Norton loves Colbert, even stating that Colbert had "done more for voting rights than anything we have ever done."
According to her staff, Del. Norton hasn't had the time to e-mail Colbert quite yet -- battling accusations of improper fundraising probably eats up a big chunk of Norton's "e-mailing television comedians" time -- but we imagine she's smiling with the news that Colbert will be coming to town.
