Barney Frank calls it quits
Barney Frank announced yesterday that he won't be seeking re-election, citing redistricting as contributory to his decision. Let's face it, at this point he's too entrenched and lazy to actually run a campaign for re-election.
Predictably the fawning media are presenting us with gleeful praise for Frank's 31-year, embarrassment of a congressional career. Lost in the media ass-kissing fest is Frank's personal responsibility for the mortgage collapse and the near national financial collapse. If Eric Holder was anything but an incompetent moron, Barney Frank would be in a prison cell, right next to Chris Dodd(insert salad-tossing joke here).
The moral of the story of liberal politicians retiring or dieing is that you can get away with pretty much anything in the eyes of the media as long as you fight for the liberal agenda, or at least pretend to fight for it.
