Why D.C. Will Always Love Marion Barry

buzzfeed.com — To most people outside Washington D.C., and to many living there now, former Mayor Marion Barry's political appeal remains a mystery. To them, he is a national embarrassment, the big-city mayor who ran America's glittering national capital into the ground, the guy who was dumb enough to get caught on tape smoking crack while still in office.
