Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., embarked on a 24-hour hunger strike in solidarity with four Occupy DC protesters who have gone without food since Dec. 8 to advocate for D.C. voting rights. Ellison, the first Muslim to serve in the House, met with the hunger strikers Thursday and pledged to read their declaration – which calls for full voting rights for District residents as well as legislative and budget autonomy – on the floor of the House of Representatives to enter it into the congressional record.
What a doofus. Going on a hunger strike for 24 hours is about the most retarded and empty gesture I can imagine. Oh no, a whole day! I hope he knows what he's doing, sounds dangerous. I'll give the people going on 9 days props though.
Is that supposed to be funny. How very mature of you.
I certainly think so. Some people ^ seem to like being swindled by phonies.
