I don't like Barney Frank, but I think that was pretty badass.

Thank you Barney for showing some spine.
pure awesome
**applause**
Really?
90% of our politicians here lack any sort of spine - when things get hairy they retreat to better groomed landscapes, Barney just went ahead and shaved a bitch.
Which is the other easy way out.
Not for someone who's livelyhood depends on people liking him. (in theory)

Well, to be honest Frank wasn't taking much of a risk in his particular district.  He knew the majority of the crawd sided with him.  But still it was nice to see someone stand up to them.

Look at it this way--he just invoked Godwin's Law on her.

Shaved a bitch??

As if there was even a small chance of a stunt like this being unpopular with his electorate (I don't even know if he was elected, but whatever).

Invoking Hitler and Nazism is just plain stupid and he called her on it and made her look stupid. Too bad she is that stupid considering she's pretty attractive.

I like Barney and I agree with what he said, but Colleen is right, he's incredibly popular in his district and he knew the crowd in the room would have been with him. He was really taking no risk. Smart move really, the clip'll get played all over TV and the internet.

Too bad she is that stupid considering she's pretty attractive.
More insightful analysis, FroHam.  ;)

I'm always here to bring things back down to basics and what's really important.

Sorry, that position has already been filled.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.
