Doesn't every citizen of the U.S. have "representation in Washington, D.C. politics - by way of a representative or senator"?

Not for residents of Washington D.C. although they do have a non voting delegate to Congress and they vote in presidential elections. Also, residents of U.S. territories and Puerto Rico do not have representatives or senators.

Comment: The photo of Barack Obama with his hand not over his heart was
taken moments before he did put his hand over his heart. You see that Bill
Richardson is in process the national anthem - actually I was told that it
was the pledge of allegiance.

PLEASE CHECK THIS OUT BECAUSE IT IS AFFECTING THE ELECTION>
THANK YOU

Walking into the bedroom and opening the underwear drawer; reading the tags to find the ones made in China and laying them out carefully on my bed.

"You are good thongs! It doesn't matter if you are only a bit of string and a small cotton liner, and made in China. I appreciate you, and you have value. How else could I avoid VPL under those charcoal-gray slacks, if not for you? You're good enough, you're pretty enough, and gosh darn it, I like you."

Whew. Hope my thongs now feel validated.

Look, up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's SUPER SNOPES (TM)!

Yes, it's SUPER SNOPES (TM) - not only faster than a speeding bullet and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but can also stop e-mail scammers dead in their tracks.

Where-ever and whenever lottery prize scammers raise their evil heads, you can rest assured that SUPER SNOPES (TM) will be there to put an end to their nefarious schemes.

Comment: I have now received three different FALSE e-mails that cite
Snopes as saying they are true. If you use the link to go to Snopes, you
find something that looks like Snopes but isn't. If you go to the actual
Snopes site, you find out the truth.

Is Snopes working on this somehow?

Yeah, as soon as we can get Bill Gates to sell us the secret to his email tracking system.
