Considering how the DUmmies treated Laura Ingraham and others who suffer from cancer, even when asked to tone it down by Elizabeth Edwards, I hope they don't find out about this.

She lived a long life and saw her son be successful in politics, whatever we might think of his beliefs. Rest in peace.

We can attack Rep. Bawney Fag all day but his mom never did anything wrong. Let her be.

That is true. Ann Lewis is Barney Frank's sister.

BTW, does anybody have a list of the incestuousness of the media and politics? The Cooper thing reignited my interest in that.

Until about a month ago, according to her family, she was living on her own, doing her own shopping and taking walks. She was giving speeches on elderly issues as recently as last year.

May we all live to be 92 still be as active as Mrs. Frank. RIP. Condolences to the family.

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?

"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.

Prayers for Elsie and her family. May she rest in peace.

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.)
