“He Smoked Crack and Got His Job Back? If You Smoke Crack at McDonalds, They Won’t Let You Back Near the Happy Meals”

Marion Barry has made yet another successful political comeback, as the crack-smoking former mayor has been elected to the Washington, D.C. city council. Here’s Jonah Goldberg, from back when Barry was re-elected mayor after being released from prison, and campaigning heavily among the “ex-offender” population:

“At that point, we decided that any mayor who could rally the ex-offender community without losing too many votes from the, say, law-abiding community, deserved a drink named after him. We came up with a concoction of Jagermeister, Kahlua, bourbon and Coke. Why this collection? Because we wanted a drink “so black not even the man could keep it down.”
