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."

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 political elite do not want to hear from the little people. Doctors? What do they know about healthcare? It's not like their input or opinions is wanted. Let the corrupt, pampered bureaucrats worry about how medicine should be done.

The man is trying to read a book! Have some respect! Sheesh!

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.

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...

Jim Ready, told the women, "If you're trying to be bitchy, you're doing a good job."

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.

I'd bet both Jimmy and Barney were sitting on comfy pillows, too. Anything to reduce the swelling.

According to one passenger: "The women had been drinking, and they were crying and shouting. They were clearly the antagonizers, and Mr. Frank was kind of minding his own business."

Confiscating one sixth of the economy, is minding your own business.

Frank said the women talked louder and then his intern partner, Jim Ready, told the women, "If you're trying to be bitchy, you're doing a good job."

Seems like Bawney Fwank's "partners" should refrain from using the word "bitch" in any form. Just my opinion.

Couple points.

1 After the women asked to talk to dear Barney, whether or not they were “talking loud” they weren’t talking to him when Barney’s partner called them “Bitchy”.

2 Sweet how they find “one passenger” to quote that Barney was so in the right and the women “antagonized” him (”those straight bitches”).

Barney Frank and his pot growing “partner” are loathesome scum and anyone who has ever seen Barney on tv knows he couldn’t keep his big offensive mouth shut for 2 seconds.

“Said Frank: “It reminds me of the joke about the woman who’s in a restaurant and Clark Gable’s there. She complains to the waiter, ‘Clark Gable is annoying me.’ The waiter says, ‘He’s not even talking to you,’ and she says, ‘Yes, and I find that very annoying.’”

http://www.boston.com/ae/celebrity/more_names/blog/2010/04/barney_frank_gets_a_high-altit.html

Now we have Frank comparing his celebrity status to that of Clark Gable? Just a little full of himself?

Barney might not seek re-election this year.

If that happens, then he and Jimmy=Poo could have more time together.

Fabulous.

What about the other passengers were they liberal to and thought the same thing..I think since this is CBS they only questioned that one passenger..

Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) was present during his partner James Ready's marijuana arrest in 2007, according to a police report.

Ready was arrested at his home in Ogunquite, Maine and was charged with marijuana possession, cultivation, and use of drug paraphernalia. Marijuana plants were found in Ready's backyard. Ready paid a fine for civil possession and the rest of the charges were dismissed in 2008.

The Boston Globe reports that Frank was on the front porch and told police that he never saw the plants and would not have recognized them.

-HuffPo

Barney Frank supports the legalization of "Medical" marijuana.

I’m saying that he deserves to be harassed all the rest of his days, whether he’s in elected office or not,

and so do all these abominable ‘rats that have foisted the bank meltdown and the healthcare fiasco on us.

Good question! I think BF enjoys politics because this way he gets to bend several MILLION people over, instead of just one.

Oh, and his initials are “BF” too. You can’t make this stuff up!

I avoid commercial flights. I don’t get airsick. But if I ever found myself in such proximity to Barney Frank, I would find a way to miss the barf bag and hurl on him.
“Gee Mr. Frank, I couldn’t help it. Something turned my stomach and you know nobody can just change their orientation.”
