D.C. corruptocrat Marion Barry is beside himself. The U.S. Coast Guard is opening a new headquarters in Ward 8 and according to Barry, he wasn’t invited to speak at the soft opening even though he’s the councilmember for that ward.

It’s too bad Twitchy didn’t play a role in the decision. We’ve been waiting for months to see Barry tweet, “Twitch set me up!

Better act fast! Big Sis is just about ready to wrap up that whole DHS thing. On the other hand, maybe — just maybe — there’s a perfectly reasonable explanation for excluding Barry from the ceremony:

    Marion Barry at St. Elizabeth’s welcoming the Coast Guard to DC ward 8. That would be too good to be true. Since he won’t be busy, maybe he could use the time to mentor young men on the hazards of crack.

      …”maybe he could use the time to mentor young men on the hazards of crack.”

      According to the tapes, Marion don’t swing that way…

    • TsT

  • DV S1EOG

    Yes, let’s invite a crack head to a location that may actually end up storing drug seizures and other evidence. Yea, that’s a great idea

    It’s too bad Twitchy didn’t play a role in the decision. We’ve been waiting for months to see Barry tweet, “Twitch set me up!“

    Marion Barry: Where’d I put that damn crack-pipe?

  • TJ

    You know why he was not asked?…Racism or something like that.

    Just how many people go to a opening of an office for the Coast Guard, 12 people and one media camera.

  • The Penguin

    This is so just the very thing that drives such honest upstanding people to use drugs….

  • Pam Oswald

    Going to start following former Mayor McCrackhead on Twitter. I love a good laugh, and not much funnier than the rantings of a Crackhead.

  • Garth Haycock

    Calm down Mr. Barry and take another hit.

  • TocksNedlog

    Come on, Jan-Nap, do Marion a solid, you creepy-vag cracka!

    Or is that “creepy vag-cracka”?

    Meh. I denounce myself, in either case.

    • The Penguin

      Eew…..One is no less gross than the other. Equally true…but gross none the less.

  • Love of Country

    Damn, I can’t go smoking crack in my hotel room for 5 minutes w/o being passed-over for an HMS speaking engagement ….. what the heck is going on around here? I’m calling Al!


    • Thale Taxurfeet

      Ha! I should have read the comments before posting a link to the video of the crackas crackin on Marion’s crack and his Lady of the Evening guest.

  • mickeyco

    That’s OK. Marion Barry has been outraging me for years.

  • Billie Slash

    As soon as they have a ceremony in the mental “ward”, I’m sure you’ll be invited, Mr. Barry.

    • cynicalfel

      I’m sure Ward 8 has some ground breaking ceremony or grand opening of a brand new crack house that Marion could attend..

  • Jarhead83

    Crack kills…one’s dreams of being a publicity whore.

  • CobraJet428

    Count your blessings…it’s currently a mental hospital. You might not come back.

    Well…..you do NOT take a ham sandwich to a banquet, Marion.

  • PeterP

    Looks like the Goddamn bitch set him up again.

  • The Masked Avatar

    Ah snap. Settle this with a break dance battle.

  • Shawn Fifield

    Maybe they were worried they might need to arrest you?

  • Wilkins Micawber

    She must be one of those filthy Asians whose shops you’re always complaining about.

    • NRPax

      Or one of those Pollacks. Don’t forget them.

  • nickshaw

    Hey! You were invited! Put the crack pipe down and answer the phone once in a while!
    Did anyone catch Don Lemon talking to Barry today on CNN?
    Barry kept insisting he was set up and Lemon never bothered to ask what Barry thought he was smoking in that drug pipe! Barry just kept saying no one “proved” it was crack.

    You’d think he was covering for the brother or something.

  • ThomasCollins1

    Don’t worry Barry. There will be no coke, and no prostitutes. This is the USCG after all, there may even be (gasp) firearms present.

  • Hermeticius

    What’s a “soft opening”?
