Did you guys really think I would stop posting about Barney Frank? Never.
Here's the video (can't embed it).
Barney reminds me a lot of what I presume the incompetent kings of the dark ages were. They are given power, they assume they can do no wrong, and are actually too dumb to recall the mistakes they made in the past. I don't think Barney's a liar, I think he is plain stupid. I don't think he remembers saying that we must "roll the dice" on Frannie and Freddie, I just think he still believes he was right on that point and doesn't know what role those institutions played in the financial collapse.
This returns me to my central point: If you don't like politicians, how could you like a pro-active government? I'm not saying vote for Republicans. I'm saying vote for the guys (or gals) that seem the least likely to put people like King Barney in charge of ANYTHING. I wouldn't let that man park my car! Yet he is in a position of tremendous power and importance, whether we like it or not.
And yes, I know making fun of his speech impediment is an ad hominem, juvenile attack, but can I really be expected to leave it on the table? That's just no fun.
