Barney Frank Gets Tongue-Lashing on Plane Posted by Sean Alfano
Congressman Barney Frank endured the not-so-friendly skies Monday on a trip back east from California as a pair of doctors upset over the recent health care overhaul confronted the Massachusetts Democrat, the Boston Globe reported.
The verbal row began, apparently, when the doctors, two sisters who are ophthalmologists and were headed to a conference in Boston, began criticizing the bill -- calling it an "Obamanation" -- upon noticing Rep. Frank nearby.
"They wanted to talk to me, but I apologized and said I like to read and watch on planes," Frank told the Globe. Frank said the women talked louder and then his partner, Jim Ready, told the women, "If you're trying to be bitchy, you're doing a good job."

Some days the joke just write themselves.
Frank is a tea bagger!!!!
He probably loved it!
He should know.
"I'll take 'Andrew Sullivan's Secret, Innermost Nighttime Fantasies' for $500, Alex."
That’s why princesa Pelosi commandeers the best military jets to take her to and from from California. This way the rabble can’t intrude into the group think bubble you create. To justify your evil communist plans
The man is trying to read a book! Have some respect! Sheesh!
“... and then his partner, Jim Ready....”
...jeeze, he travels with his butt buddy on the taxpayers dime no doubt.
With all the issues they rais about discriminating against Barney for being gay,
His partner actually told the women they were “BITCHY”.
Can’t make it up, can you? But I guess if someone calls Barney a “gay epithet” it’s still a shooting offense.
You win the thread!
Love it that the “partner” called the FEMALE DOCTORS “bitchy” - how enlightened - then again, if he’s a Barney boy friend, it goes without saying...
Shout out to Fall River, MA -> GET RID OF THIS JERK!!!!!!!!
A snide comment that, had it been uttered by the spouse of a conservative lawmaker, would have resulted in howls of outrage from the liberal press.
But because it was said by Frank's "partner," there will be mostly yawns or applause from the left.
This would be the wonderful partner who was running a marijuana farm on Barney’s property?
Here’s hoping this is a start of a trend. Good for these ladies making him hear from the people. His fagfriend should have gotten decked for that statement.
Pray for America
