Jimmy Kimmel Pitches A 13th Mayoral Candidate

The D.C. mayor's race already has twelve candidates. On his show last night, Jimmy Kimmel proposed one more, and even made the first TV commercial of the season for him.

    You obviously are not from DC, and ignorant to boot! Marion Barry was induced to smoke crack, in order to get some booty! He repeatedly said NO on tape!

    Now he does have his own demons, like us all, but he did an enormous amount of GOOD for this city of my birth place. Barry built the U st corridor, and was instrumental in the revitalization of the once vacant downtown. In fact while your paper was a blip in the eye of many, located in a once haven for the non conformist, Barry was busy building the city. If you had any journalist ability you would know this! Rob Ford did it voluntarily, what's the difference here???

    This is funny. I usually do not find Jimmy Kimmell funny but this is. I'm a long-time DC resident. We deserve to be the object of jokes. Until Marion is dead and buried or his stupid supporters stop electing him, we will be the object of jokes.

  • Typical DC BS

    Right Bud. Are you smoking weed? Barry built the U Street corridor? Barry was responsible for the revitalization of downtown DC? Please.

    Mayor Barry has his accomplishments, but those two aren't among them.

    I'm not a huge fan of Barry (mixed feelings) but his days of real power in DC are behind him.
    There's really no reason to keep kicking him for things that happened a long time ago.
    The joke is old and obvious and the sketch would have been better without it.

  • Hilarious

    Bud, you have to be kidding.

    Even if you are right, the sitting mayor, a married man was caught on video tape with a prostitute...who also smoked crack with him.

    This doesn't even discuss the 12 personally appointed department heads and deputy major positions during his tenor of mayor who were convicted of federal crime (pay to play, embezzelment etc) and who all served time.

    The man is 8 years behind on his income taxes, has failed 6 random drug tests over the past 7 years as a condition of his parole (tested positive for heroin, PCP's and cocaine while a sitting member of the DC Council), been convicted for DUI (twice) and found guilty of directing city contracts to his girlfriend with the condition he get a portion of the profit.

    I could go on for years, but you are obviously a product of the DC schools during his time of mayor, so unqualifed to think.

    YO TYP! BARRY SHOULD GET SOME IF NOT ALL CREDIT FOR THE U STREET AWAKENING.

  • Crack Smokin’ Ex-Mayor

    Barry has been caught with crack multiple times. Then there was that big City Paper cover story where they followed him to a crack house...
