Yeah people!

Crack smoking politician get's there own statue.

The small silvering lining on it ?

The thought of how many birds will be relieving themselves on it.

Karmic Justice!

“The contagious people of Washington have stood firm against diversity during this long period of increment weather.”


Marion Barry

Thats going to be the quote on the plaque.

That or "Bitch set me up". Spoken after FBI agents arrested him while he was smoking crack with a hooker.

Good choice for a statue.

If statues to a few controversial black leaders keep people from fretting about statues...I am all for it.

The Liberty Bell is celebrated, too, despite the crack issue.

He only made a couple bad statements but made the city better.

Got busted twice but only hurt himself.

No controversy here...Marion Barry was a HUGE disappointment, a crook, drug user and used the race card quite freely while he was in office, or under investigation.

Should they put the statue up? Sure..."Mayor for Life" Barry is a symbol of how the population of DC could be bamboozled and not even give a flip about it.

That's the whole issue, that there isn't one.

A statue that's been up 100 years? Panic.

A new statue for a drug-abusing racist? Meh.

Marion Barry was a good Mayor, overall. I have nothing against him, personally. Some Politicians do drugs, sleep with hookers, racketeer in their spare time, and a host of other mischievous deeds that would grant them free passage to Sodom and Gomorrah.

Barry isn't the only corrupt politician by any stretch but I don't know if he's deserving of a statue.


It is though quite hilarious when they get caught.
