D.C. is getting reading for the big weekend. And it being D.C., that preparation includes a little self-promotion for the district’s favorite issue: D.C. statehood.

These signs are posted all over the place near the convention center, where most of the official Inaugural Balls (the ones with Obama and Biden in attendance) will take place.

I guess they think the Mighty Obama crowd, riding the wave of excitement from the Inauguration, might see the signs  and think, “Yeah, sure! We can! Let’s give that little district a vote!”
