Washington D.C. Mayor Marion Berry Speaks
It is truly amazing that a political genius of this magnitude exists in our depraved world of today. And, the fact that he is Mayor of Washington D.C. really takes the cake.

Some time back a list was put together of the "very best" quotes that the wise Mayor has made over the course of his current career. It must be noted that he is by and far not the only "mentally unrealized" person of political influence, but to date, aside from Dan Quayle's famous egrarious public statements, Mayor Marion Barry is truly the cockiest and least aware political office holder.

"The contagious people of Washington have stood firm against diversity during this long period of increment weather."
- M. Barry, Mayor of Washington, DC -
 
"I promise you a police car on every sidewalk."
- M. Barry, Mayor of Washington, DC -
 
"If you take out the killings, Washington actually has a very very low crime rate."
- M. Barry, Mayor of Washington, DC -
 
"First, it was not a strip bar, it was an erotic club. And second, what can I say? I'm a night owl."
- M. Barry, Mayor of Washington, DC -
 
"Bitch set me up." (in response to the bust with the crack and hooker)
- M. Barry, Mayor of Washington, DC -
 
"I am clearly more popular than Reagan. I am in my third term. Where's Reagan? Gone after two! Defeated by George Bush and Michael Dukakis, no less."
- M. Barry, Mayor of Washington, DC -
 
"The laws in this city are clearly racist. All laws are racist. The law of gravity is racist."
- M. Barry, Mayor of Washington, DC -
 
"I am making this trip to Africa because Washington is an international city, just like Tokyo, Nigeria or Israel. As mayor, I am an international symbol. Can you deny that to Africa?"
- M. Barry, Mayor of Washington, DC -
 
"People have criticized me because my security detail is larger than the president's. But you must ask yourself, are there more people who want to kill me than who want to kill the president? I can assure you there are."
- M. Barry, Mayor of Washington, DC -
 
"The brave men who died in Vietnam, more than 100% of which were black, were the ultimate sacrifice."
- M. Barry, Mayor of Washington, DC -
 
"I read a funny story about how the Republicans freed the slaves. The Republicans are the ones who created slavery by law in the 1600's. Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves and he was not a Republican."
- M. Barry, Mayor of Washington, DC -
 
"What right does Congress have to go around making laws just because they deem it necessary?"
- M. Barry, Mayor of Washington, DC -
 
"People blame me because these water mains break, but I ask you, if the water mains didn't break, would it be my responsibility to fix them then? WOULD IT!?!"
- M. Barry, Mayor of Washington, DC -
 
"I am a great mayor; I am an upstanding Christian man; I am an intelligent man; I am a deeply educated man; I am a humble man."
- M. Barry, Mayor of Washington, DC -
 
And finally, during a press conference Mayor Barry was asked about an on-going IRS investigation into his financial affairs he replied, "What we have here is an egregemous miscarriagement of taxitude."
- M. Barry, Mayor of Washington, DC -
