God, we love Barney Frank ... (and the bailout does have its bright side)
God, I love Barney Frank. The Massachusetts congressman and chairman of the House Financial Services Committee and, as such, a major player in the current bail-out crisis on Capitol Hill, says this about John McCain's chest puffery and panic regarding the financial mess:
"It's the longest Hail Mary pass in the history of either football ... or Marys." The jolly poof then goes on to compare the Bush administration and Secretary Paulson's resistance to conceding executive pay caps or "golden parachutes" to "trying to force the grand rabbi of Jerusalem to eat bacon on Yom Kippur." Thank you, Barney Frank, for reppin' the GLBT with some serious funny.
