Marion Barry: Bitch Set Him Up, Again

Marion Barry smoked crackYou can’t help but laugh at Marion Barry when it comes to news coverage, as he seems to be the patron saint of some political corollary to Murphy’s Law: what can be caught, will be caught… and covered on a national level.

His most recent faux pas was to test positive for cocaine use in the fall after failing court ordered drug tests following misdemeanor tax violations. WaPo has the full story (via Wonkette).

Funny enough, if Barry would reverse his views on gun control, we could probably claim his tax-dodging, drug-using ass as a libertarian.

I've published HoT along with about 300+ friends since 2002. We're all Americans who are snarky and love our country. I'm a libertarian that registered Republican because I like to win elections. That's pretty much it.

  1. I think the people who voted for Barry have gotten – and continue to get – everything they deserve. He’s perfect for them.

  2. He can never be a libertarian. He is pro-gun control tax and spend liberal who happens to be a tax dodging cocaine junkie who lies when the truth would do him good.

    I hope I am not now considered a racist because I called it like it is and he happens to be black.

    There are many white liberals with the same traits.

  3. Julian: I was being tongue-in-cheek when I said that. I thought it was kinda funny that the two things he’s notorious for are items he wouldn’t be under scrutiny for in a libertarian government, because they would be moot points.
