  • Welllllllll!!!!!

    Yessss!! You could say Barry is responsible for
    'everything' if you're spaking of providing a way for African American DC natives and those who also moved here for a better chance in life. White people were not the only ones who chose a progressive move to DC.

    Like somebody said in an earlier post: Black people were not the only ones who kept voting Marion Barry into office. Say what you want about the man, he is resilient beyond measure. He is a very intelligent and politically saavy man. What he didn't know well, he found someone who did. Few local or national politicians have the political acumen of a Marion S. Barry, DC Mayor For Life.

  • Welllllllll!!!!!

    Damn! Ole Muriel did't miss a demographic in her speech did she? Going after that hispanic vote won't help her.
    She'll never shed the Fenty shadow. And she'll never live down that joint effort of a certain ilk to coerce Vince Gray to step down.

    Still, kudos to her speech writer. That's the only good thing I can say about Ms. Bow Wowser. My crew and I have decided we'll work extra hard just to make sure she doesn't get elected as opposed to working for someone to get elected. Same tactic we used on her boy Adrian.

    Barry is also responsible for inventing the cordless vibrator, the wankle rotory engine, water, and Lawrence Welk.

  • name

    It seems like Barry's new PR rep has discovered the City Paper. Mazel tov.

  • Drez

    Barry hasn't carried the White vote since he "got over" caring about it, and rediscovered Kente Cloth.

  • Welllllllll!!!!!

    Barry doesn't need no PR rep.
    He is larger than that wax figure in that French broad's museum. And what makes you think you're the only one who knows about CP,name?

    Get over it, Creeps. Barry is Da One and don't ya'll ever f'in' forget it. How can you? His legend won't let you.

    Drez, WTF is yo problem, dude? Who said anything about CARRYING a White vote? Don't you think for one GD minute dem White folks didn't get their feed on from Marion Barry. You and the other assholes just mad cause you can't stick nothin illegal of substance on him. Ain't cause ya'll didn't try. How much did that stupid mofo DeGenova spend tryin' to stomp him out? MILLIONS & MILLIONS & MILLIONS OF $$$. Who benefited from that? The US Atty's office and undercover DEA agents, that's who.

  • ward4rez

    Bowser doesn't "represent" all of the demographic of Ward 4. While NOT working as an ANC in Riggs Park, she let it slip that she has contempt for renters. LMAO@ her sudden attempt at populism. Fake ass!!

  • Welllllllll!!!!!

    Dear God In Heaven Above:

    Please Let Muriel Bowser run for Mayor against the incumbent Vincent Gray. We know how the constituents in her ward feel about her and we know how she has really turned other constituents against her because of her one time close affiliation with former Mayor Adrian Fenty.

    We also know that most people will not be coerced into believing she has the best interest of ALL Washingtonians in mind.

    There are other reasons enlightened citizens won't vote for her, but this is a prayer and we're trying to be prayerful.

    The incumbent will run over a Bowser campaign like a boulder down a mountain side. Our prayer is for a peaceful campaign with no ugliness; however, because we need all the grace we can receive in DC, we wish her no harm. Just please find a way to remove her from the public spotlight so she can do the things she really wants to do but can't do with the public eye upon her.


  • Drez

    Lol. That's right. Split those hairs as fine as you like.
    And I ain't mad- he did worse to himself with with his son (and his kidneys and liver) than I'd ever wish on anyone.
    But bad choices aren't exactly good recommendations.

  • ward4rez

    @Welll! #28. Amen.
    Actually, Bowser's reputation as an uppity, ineffective and absolutely non-responsive Riggs Park area ANC preceded her affiliation with Fenty, and turned off many of her constituents who might have otherwise been willing to give her the benefit of the doubt as a CM. Right now she distinguishes herself as a CM who hasn't been embroiled in scandal, but she falls way short of bringing much else.

  • ward4rez

    Why is my last comment awaiting moderation, unlike my previous one?

  • RealDC

    Bowser is hilarious. She has no self-awareness. She brings Josh Lopez on stage for her swearing in and then stumble through a few words in Spanish. Really? Stop with the gimmicks already! Geez. Bowser is a clown on every level, just look at her record!

  • ward4rez

    So...having tried to re-post the comment that is awaiting moderation I've been moderated again, as 2 other comments (including my #10) are allowed. What's the offense? No one can attest to their dissatisfaction with certain elected officials, but CP gives carte blanche to anyone who wants to criticize & insult others?

  • Drez

    ward4rez: it's a computer glitch. CP's spam filter is quirky. Try rewording your post, or emailing Mike Maddon.

  • nowaitadaminit

    And Drez oughta know.
    He reportedly is a MM/LL clone.

  • drez

    ^ If I am amused by other's paranoid delusions, does that make me a bad person?

  • nowaitadaminit


    Come on Slim. You sound like you're a Big Boy. Surely you can take it like you try to dish it out.

    No, son, your amusement is not brought forth as a result of paranoia, more likely because of others' perceptions.

    Nobody said you are a bad person. In fact if I thought you were, I'd be scared to fuck with you even anonymously.
    The truly industrious hack can find out who all of us are.

    We like you, Drez, we really like you. Now does that make you feel better? Because I really, really mean it.

  • nowaitadaminit

    th: Whassup? You want some of this or somethin'? Well, sorry to say: I DO NOT like you, nor your inane comments. I'm sure you will understand when I say I'll certainly try to refrain from responding to your small minded trite reactions in the future.

  • truth hurts

    son, slim, big boy, youngun, wassup....blah, blah, blah

    You'll never be noodlez, but keep on trying if you like. It's a free country.

  • nowaitadaminit

    Who wouldn't want to be just like noodlez when they grow up????? Glad to hear you admire Dude so much. He most def is one of my favorite peeps in da whole wide world.
    Maybe you and Drez should attempt to emulate such greatness.

  • Truth hurts

    I'm good with noodlez and drez. Both have stuck with their monikers for years, unlike you and. some other posers. Btw, you're not noodlez's type IMO.

  • nowaitadaminit

    Not only do you voice your own asinine opinions (which is your right), but you now want to opine on the likes/dislikes of others.

    You and Drez are beneath my contempt and intellect.
    Though neither one of you knows me, you have both ceased to amuse me.

    By the way, who is/was DC Rez?
