I (heart) Barney Frank

Mind you, I don't always (or even often) agree with his ideas/stances/policies/posturing. But kudos to him for taking on some of the bugshit crazies who seem to be infesting these Town Hall meetings. He didn't stand there and take it, try to reason with them, try to hold a rational discussion with people clearly not intending to behave rationally, not use the usual political weasel-wording so prevalent amongst politicians.

Sock it to 'em, Barney!

This is the long version. The bugshittiest one is first...

I saw that today and I feel the same way. Perfect response.

I'm with you. I don't always agree with Frank, but I respect him in that he really stands up for what he feels is right.

I have issues with parts of the health care bill, but I'm sick of the bat-shit crazies and lying weasel fronts pretending to be independent, grass-root movements packing meetings and rallys with industry employees.
