QUOTE FOR THE DAY

So Marion Barry was robbed at gunpoint last night, and he wasn’t best pleased:

“There is a sort of an unwritten code in Washington, among the underworld and the hustlers and these other guys, that I am their friend,” Barry said at an afternoon news conference in which he described the robbery in detail. “I don’t advocate what they do. I advocate conditions to change what they do. I was a little hurt that this betrayal did happen.”

Somewhere in here, there’s a joke about liberals who get mugged by reality, but I can’t quite put my finger on it . . .
