Breitbart points to Marion Barry’s interview with Reason:

This blog would like to point out that Marion Barry’s likability, noted in the interview, stems from only the finest political platform planks (click to embiggen):



  • ReaganiteRepublican

    Shame Barry ain’t running for President, he’d really hit it off with the Secret Service guys

  • Adobe_Walls

    Good luck getting Black business people into the city, almost all of the businesses burned out in 68 were black owned. They left and never looked back.

  • Svt1999

    We have tonight’s video… “Stealing Your Vote” posted now on Common Cents…

    You’re raaaaacist for noticing this.

    What bad luck DC African Americans have, always winding up with corrupt dirtbags for their political leadership.  If only there was something they could do about it.

  • Pathfinder’s wife

    I could see him actually running on that platform.

  • JeffS

    M’kay, now, that “clipped article” came from the Onion, didn’t it?

    I mean, it’s truthy, and I have no doubt that Barry is stupid enough to encourage his friends and followers to get high, but not stupid enough to do it in public.

    I remember seeing Mayor Barry on video smoking crack and crying, “The bitch set me up” in an old documentary.  I think it was called Amanda Marcotte:  The Early Years . . .

    Uhhh. . .yes. Hence the use of ‘Reference’, and an Amazon ad for the source directly below the scanned article.
