Definition of Washingtonian

A Potomac tribesman who exchanged the privilege of governing himself for the advantage of good government.  In justice to him it should be said that he did not want to.
  They took away his vote and gave instead
  The right, when he had earned, to eat his bread.
  In vain -- he clamors for his 'boss,' pour soul,
  To come again and part him from his roll.

Offenbach Stutz
