I have no idea what you and Phelps Guy were talking about but it sounds like you though Washington wasn't a state it is, look it up http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Washington_ (state)Dear Mr. Phelps,
In political venacular, Washington, the black hole of governance, or the lack of, is Washington, D.C., I assume you are joking about WA. the state, but after the last election, maybe you are not. And the massa you have elected is of course the one and only champion of the middle class, who is on another field trip educating you with his professorial speeches, just before he heads to the playground of the down trodden masses, Marthas' Vineyard. Call the secy of State, maybe you can park your yacht next to his.
also I get it politicans often refer to District of Colombia as "Washington, DC" but Washington is a total different place. You and Phelps Guy should be done with your debate now.
