Did Rep. Barney Frank Fart on Live TV?
Daily Caller ^ | 9 Aug 2011 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 08/09/2011 8:16:21 AM PDT by smokingfrog

Live television has its drawbacks. A big one is that you never know when an accident might happen.

Exhibit “A”: Monday night’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” on MSNBC.

While talking to Maddow’s audience about jobs and unemployment, Rep. Barney Frank, the Massachusetts Democrat, might have accidentally let one rip, so to speak. (h/t Bob’s Blitz)

You be the judge:

Rachel, I think we have to figure out what we do from here and you’re right, we’ve got to get some jobs

“Did Rep. Barney Frank Fart on Live TV?”

Can he really trust a fart?

LOL....check out one of the comments there:

What’s the difference between Barney Frank and a refrigerator ?? The refrigerator doesn’t fart when you take the meat out.

Hard to believe - given Barney's 1,000’s of rounds of buttDARTS that Barney's probably played, it's hard to believe he has the wherewith all to emit any sound from his ‘DARTboard’.

I just “heard” Barney Fwank on Glenn Beck.

Did he ricochet a condom?

The Ballad of Barney Frank

Spring is comin’ and the ice will break,
I can’t linger for a woman’s sake.
She’ll see a shadow pass overhead.
She’ll find my feathers beside my bed.

(My heart knows what the wild goose knows,)
(And I must go where the wild goose goes.)
Wild goose, brother goose, which is best?
A wanderin’ fool or a heart at rest?

honk honk

Yep, he certainly did.

And even hiked up on one cheek to help get it out.

This would be front page, above the fold news if GWB did it.

But for Dems, it just SOP. What a slob.

Miz Madcow, being a perverted homosexual, enjoyed the rare perfume of a fellow queer’s expulsion.

I listened very carefully and after going to the archives of Animal Kingdom believe that this is the culprit.

Most probably it got “misplaced” days or even weeks ago and has now come out to see if it can see it’s shadow.

I’ll take your word for it. Just can’t stand to see that face/voice almost as much as the ‘stupid is as stupid does’ in the WH.

Bu the story’s worth it just to laugh at the comments here, and I need a good laugh today.

If an old queen farts on MSNBC, does it really make a noise?
