Hey, it’s Indiana’s James Bopp, right after he convinced the GOP platform committee in Tampa to oppose D.C. statehood. What a neat guy, and definitely a serious thinker on statehood.

Wonkette compared Bopp’s fist pump to a jock on Glee, but from my personal experience, I can tell that Bopp’s subdued but still exultant move is pure high school debate tournament.
