The United Nations self-parody watch: standing up for the District of Columbia 

The United Nations Human Rights Council has determined that the United States Constitution is inconsistent with international law because...

...the District of Columbia does not have a voting member of Congress.

I shit you not.

The Human Rights Council includes among its members the People's Republic of China, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Russia, Cuba, and a half dozen African countries which don't even understand enough about government to pretend to democracy. Naturally, the most pressing item on its agenda is whether the residents of the District of Columbia have a voting member of Congress.

Why does anybody care what the United Nations thinks about anything?

CWCID: K-Lo, who begs for this story to be a joke. It is a joke, but it is also true.
