Is Marion Barry the Next Reality-Show Star?

Sarah Palin has a show. So why not?

The D.C. Council may have censured him, but Marion Barry won't let you forget that he's "mayor for life."

And he has a reality show to prove it. The series, which had one episode streaming via YouTube last week, is still being shopped around to a few networks, according to his former communications director Andre Johnson. (The YouTube episode has since been made private.)

If Sarah Palin can get a show, it shouldn't be too long before Barry's Mayor for Life gets picked up. In the meantime, here's hoping that the first episode will show up on YouTube again.
