VICE Editor-in-Chief Rocco Castoro and the Daily Beast’s Michael Moynihan (who really should know better) came down to D.C. last week to ask Marion Barry some questions about the third presidential debate. Along the way, they went to Nellie’s and DC9, too.

But when they asked Barry whether Mitt Romney had better hair than Barack Obama (around 3:00), he would have none of it. Apparently, the mayor-for-life understands that bugging him with questions until he snaps at you is a pastime for Washingtonians only.

Correction: The story initially listed Barry’s choice as between his own hair and Obama’s. In fact, Barry was asked to choose whether Romney or Obama has better hair.
