We aren't DU.
She is survived by her daughter.
Come on that isn't called for...
Where did you get that image, you bad, bad boy?
She lived a long life and saw her son be successful in politics, whatever we might think of his beliefs. Rest in peace.
RIP, Mrs. Frank. Condolences to the family.
We can attack Rep. Bawney Fag all day but his mom never did anything wrong. Let her be.
BTW, does anybody have a list of the incestuousness of the media and politics? The Cooper thing reignited my interest in that.
Poor long suffering woman. I hope she in now resting in peace.
Add "also," sorry.
Lewis used to be on TV a bit. Not quite as foul as barney for a Dim.
92 is a good run, RIP Mrs. Frank
Nothing against the old lady, although I have to wonder about anyone who produced not one but two of the most obnoxious liberals now on stage.
In any case, why is her death news?
don't know... ya ever wonder why she never went to a gay barbeque with her son?
"why she never went to a gay barbeque with her son"?
I really couldn't care less. My guess is that she's an old leftist bytch whose leftist children didn't get that way by accident. It is possible that she never quite caught up with the left-wing party line on the gay issue. So what?
My condolences to her family and to Representative Frank and his sister Anne Lewis, the two most prominent of Mrs Frank's family.
My grandfather was a left wing Democrat (except on guns and the death penalty). I loved him and wish he were still with me nonetheless. Let's not dance on a person's grave because of their politics.
Oh, man, I hope this doesn't turn into Jennings redux.
Barney had a female mother? I thought he was the creation of a gay marriage.
Just airing my completely unsupported view that she was probably a left-winger. Not dancing on the old lady's grave. I'm neither glad nor sad about her death. (Although I do have trouble understanding some FReepers' compulsion to offer prayers and condolences for everyone in the world who has died.)
cause all the hot dogs taste like s@$^. (its a joke, son)
