Another One Bites The Dust

    Good riddance to bad rubbish.

    MA just lost a seat due to the reapportionment, which will make his fellow Taxachussets Democrats in Congress quite happy to see him go as well.

      That’s really not an issue. They’re losing only one seat (dammit), but John Olver already announced that he wasn’t seeking re-election, either. Plus, John Tierney has a bit of awkward explaining to do — his wife’s in a federal pen for tax charges for helping out her fugitive brother’s offshore online gambling scam.

        It sounds as if the Taxachussets Congressional delegation has managed to under-perform against my very low expectations.

          Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

          Remember the Democratic Party has changed since FDR but still remains a Grand Coalition – thieves, murderers, perverts, thugs, whores, Blame-America-Firsters, and parasites of every description, all jostling for a better spot at the taxpayers’ trough.

      Not sure, but I’ve got a boot I’d like to put up his arse if he wouldn’t enjoy it so much.

    You’ll have to pardon Barney, he was “blinded by ideology”.  Just as he was to the marijuana dealing and prostitution ring run by his lover.

    Never fear though.  Just when you think the Massholes can’t elect someone of lower caliber…they do.

      Well, there are still a few Kennedys around, if they can get one out of rehab long enough… bring Patrick “Patches” back from RI, Teddy Jr., Joe III, maybe even bring in RFK Jr. from NY.

    I have full confidence that the voters of MA can find someone even more undeserving of the public trust than Barney Frank.  In fact I am so confident of that fact that I am moving back to Chicago at the end of the year.  (yeah, I know.  Illinois isn’t much better, but at least it has the benefit of being where my son lives.  Also Illinois actually goes GOP occasionally and the county I will live in is GOP)

    I think Otis is correct. He must know something is going to be investigated next year. Probably about the Fannie and Freddie debaucle. I cannot see this self serving punk resigning for any other reason. ww

      I agree. There’s no way this guy would leave the power and perks without a self serving reason.

      • jim_m

        I don’t think it’s fear of going to prison.

        Think about it:  He’d get free room and board and unlimited boyfriends.  Sounds a lot like what he had when his partner was running a gay brothel out of his DC apartment.  Life wouldn’t really change for Barney in prison.

      No doubt those who have used his meddling to enrich themselves at the expense of the public will show their gratitude with seats on Boards of Directors, academic chairs, foundation fellowships, and front row tickets to La Cage aux Folles.

    Who is next in line to replace Barney?  The “lovely” Ms. Maxine Waters.   OMG!

      Rats-at first when I read that, I thought you meant she might retire next. Now I realize that she’ll chair his committees. Yikes!

        Another reason for the Democrats to never get the majority again.

        She will be the Ranking Member on the Banking Committee, the highest position for a member of the Minority, which she will claim proves the system is racist.

        But Maxine as the face and voice of the Democratic Party on financial issues should be boffo entertainment, and an object lesson to voters everywhere.

    There are no words on who might run to take his seat

      Too old – and I think it was “Studds,” as hilariously ironic as that is.  The old joke was, “How does Gerry Studds mark his place?”

      Don’t feel bad for Barney.  He’ll land on his feet just fine helping companies find loopholes through Dodd-Frank, probably in partnership with Chris Dodd.

          Don’t any of you haters have any gay friends, co-workers, or family members? Would you guys make the kinds of “jokes” you made on this thread with them in the room?

          Like to put a boot up his ass if he wouldn’t enjoy it? He wouldn’t mind prison because he would, presumably, enjoy prison rape? Missions to Uranus? God, I think I honestly heard that one in 7th grade back in 1966!

          Kind of surprised YOU joined in, Oysteria. I thought you were an empathetic human being despite being a conservative.

            Actually Bruce  Barney Fudge has invited all the ridicule that is heaped upon him.  The call boy ring out of his apartment (run by his boyfriend) should have shamed anyone (straight or not) to resign from Congress.  instead Dems hold him in high regard.  Same for idiots, crooks and thieves  like Waters, Kennedy, Shiela Jackson Lee, Byrd, Rangel  and Kerry.    And if a republican did these things I wouldnt vote for them either unless the person they were running aginst was worse  (sorta like voting for Romney instead of Obama).

            I was laughing when I heard Barney  was gonna retire.  It literally made my day. No matter who they get to take his place Congress is better off for it.

            Fine, RM. You actually have a point about the call-boy ring. But the middle-school queer-baiting is out of line, in my opinion.

            But, carry on, haters. Do your worst. Just do me a favor and don’t act all butthurt next time someone calls you a bigot. You’ve earned it today.

            “Haters?” “Bigots?” OK, who said “The rat bastard faggot should just get AIDS and die?” I’ve banned for less, and I got the hammer right here.

            Oh… no one. Just some mildly distasteful juvenilia.

            Man, Bruce, you have some SERIOUS threshold issues.

            JayTea, “SERIOUS threshold issues.” and an inability to practice what they preach are the hallmarks of leftardy.

            Mildly distasteful juvenilia indeed. Which sparked my original comment. I guess I did go a little over the top with “haters” and “bigots” but I didn’t really expect anyone to try to DEFEND their “mildly distasteful juvenilia.” Maybe I should have.

            30 years ago the same geniuses would be swapping Polack jokes, and 30 years before that they’d be howling with laughter at Stepin Fetchit.

            As friend, co-worker and relative to many gay people I just get tired of the crap sometimes

            I have told “gay jokes” with guys whom I knew were gay. 
            I also knew that they would take it in the spirit it was intended.
            I then get to hear a few jokes about the bad side of cunninglingus (and yes guys there can be a bad side). Ribbing between friends.  Yes I have gay friends.  Oh my gosh take away my official homophobic card.  You see Bruce it is like joking about Biden’s hair plugs or Kennedy’s drinking or Monica cigar jokes.    No harm is meant.    Is it sophmorish?  Yep.  What do you call 40 year old men who paint them selves up with weird colors and wear things like fake Cheese on their heads?  Is that adult, refined, and civilized?  Nope.   What about guys who can go around and tell you who knocked in the 2nd run of the 3rd game of the 1956 World series and who was on base at the time?  A constructive use of brain cells?     It is called being a man and enjoying life.  (one for the women -  discussing the subtle differences between Muave curtains and whatever other color they are looking at or birght pink vs not so bright pink shoes and how it doesnt go with belt and dress). 

            In this instance I sincerely believe

            “Lighten up, Francis.”
            is called for.

            Yes Bruce, I WOULD make silly Jr. High jokes about Barney Frank…and they chuckle.  Barney Frank ISN’T a joke…he’s a menace to America and is going away, just not soon enough!

            So yup, Barney is a dick…AND he’s an a$$hole!  And not because he’s gay…I DO NOT CARE ABOUT THAT.

            I do care that he has been at the heart of numerous activites that have weakened my country.

            The more scorn and ridicule heaped on this moron, the better!  Oh, and I DO care that his lover ran a male-prostitution ring out of Barney’s love-shack!

      What do you expect from folks who keep Kerry in office.? Or Kennedy, a drunken lech who is reponsisble for the death of a woman.    Noone said folks from Mass. were smart.  They keep proving they arent each election cycle.
