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
...what the hell is wrong with the people of Mass to let a guy like Frank stay in office...have they forgotten that this state was once a cradle of democracy in 1776?
Confiscating one sixth of the economy, is minding your own business.
Seems like Bawney Fwank's "partners" should refrain from using the word "bitch" in any form. Just my opinion.
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.
And that's the last time Delta Airlines will allow him on THEIR airplanes.
“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.’”
Now we have Frank comparing his celebrity status to that of Clark Gable? Just a little full of himself?
These people need to live in a world of NO PEACE.
They need to be hounded until the end of their days.
I don’t care if they “retire” - they need constant
harassment whenever they are in public.
Are we to assume Barney enjoyed the tongue lashing? Yuck!
We need to provide
Private jets for Congressmen.
To avoid such scenes.
They should not have to
Interact with the people
Over whom they rule.
The FFF Frank wants to control my health care, and along with Chris Dodd managed to start this whole financial crisis with their shenanigans at Fannie And Freddie, yet he doesn’t want to be bothered by lowly citizens while flying. FUBF!
And the rabble stink too-Harry Reid
Barney might not seek re-election this year.
If that happens, then he and Jimmy=Poo could have more time together.
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..
Disgusting that a district in our nation has sent such a vile man to represent them and make laws.
My thoughts exactly. MA could regain a lot of respect if they fire this jerk.
“Confiscating one sixth of the economy, is minding your own business.”
SPOT ON, perfect comment.
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.
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.
A truly unfortunate headline.
“Please ! Ladies! Can’t you see I’m trying to have sex with this young male flight attendant??? Try to have a little decency!!!”
“...what the hell is wrong with the people of Mass to let a guy like Frank stay in office...have they forgotten that this state was once a cradle of democracy in 1776?”
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!
Very unfortunate turn of phrase on thread title. Very unfortunate... and sickening. But (no pun intended, Barney) I am glad to see him confronted by whoever is willing to do it. Just PLEASE don’t call it tongue lashing....
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.”
Good! And since I am certain that Barney Frank sticks out like an Ooompah Loompah everywhere he goes, this is likely to continue.
I’d tag him the lash-er, not the lash-ee.
That’s a really, really ugly picture.
Would you prefer “got his ass chewed”?
