Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

One sign of the decrepitude of the Democratic Party is that Marion Barry was returned to office on the DC city council. But he is a shell of his old self; he looks like he’s just out of the same hospital ward as Yassir Arafat. If Keith Richards ran into him on the street, Richards would undoubtedly say, "Man, you look bad."

If they are recycling fossils like Barry, they’re really in trouble.

Reminds me of an old Keith Richards joke:

"Hey Keith!"


"Lie down!"


"’Cause you’re dead"

Barry was not really supported by the Democratic establishment, as far as I understand it, and his resurrection has more to do with DC-internal politics than with Democratic party support. Folks in his ward were sticking a thumb in the eye of the establishment. That’s it.

Not unlike much of the Republican rhetoric about liberal elites, actually :-)

I worked 4 Berry @ Pride Inc. @ age 13 By 14 I was installing screens to the doors and the doors to the jams.
Berry Gave me hope.

Some day I will like 2 join him in ward 8 and give others what Berry has giving me.
