God, I love Barney Frank. The Massachusetts congressman and Chairman of the 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."
And this from Politico.com via CBS News regarding Frank's dealings with the prez and bail-out author Paulson:
"Asked what the biggest hang-up was, the colorful Jersey-born Democrat quipped that it was the administration's allergy to accepting any sort of pay caps on executives in companies that take the bailout.
Frank, who is Jewish, likened the negotiations over pay to convincing 'the Grand Rabbi of Jerusalem to eat bacon on Yom Kippur.'"
