The Biggest Shock Of The Election: Barney Frank Could Lose
Joe Weisenthal
Oct. 1, 2010, 5:43 AM

If this occurred it would be the biggest shock of the midterm elections.

Republicans are starting to get a little hopeful that they can knock off longtime Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank.

Byron York at the Examiner spotlights his 4th District competitor Sean Bielat, who a new poll has within 10 points, a shockingly narrow number for a no-name against this Congressional stalwart.

Adding to the sense that Frank is in trouble, Bill Clinton actually came and campaigned with Barney this past week, something he presumably wouldn't do in a cakewalk.

If Frank does lose, it will mean the GOP had an amazing election night, ending up with big majorities in both Houses.

I doubt Frank will lose, but the Democrats still have not received the message from the public, much like the RINOs controlling the GOP coffers. Bringing out Bill Clinton, or any other retread, is not going to work, and may actually have the opposite effect.

It's not a partisan election; it's an anti-establishment election. The conservatives figured that out during primary season, and the Dems are still running against the RINOs.

I don’t drink at all (can’t stand the taste of what I’ve tried) and I will be glued to the results. The real question will be what the next day will be like. Will it be good, stunned silence, or civil breakdown by the marxists?

I was going to say that Barney's about to get spanked by Sean Bielat.

But Barney would probably like that.

“it’s an anti-establishment” election.

The irony of that statement contrasted with the same phrase used in the 1960’s by the hippie movement is delicious.

" Will it be good, stunned silence, or civil breakdown by the marxists? "

There might be a intangible " stunned silence " lurking in the back of their primitive collective minds of " what the heck happen here ? " while they are yapping it up scorning and telling the American people that " how can this be ? " after we passed health care for them " .. " we bailed out the banks for them " .. we bailed out the auto companies for them " .. and this is the thanks we get from the American people ?

Good point. The feel-good hippies and the mushy RINOs are now the establishment, and they have ruined the country to the point that sensible people want both out of power.

We need to remember that Massachusetts is the one of the queens, if not the queen of pork.

Like Pavlov's dog, those people are conditioned to pork.

And Barney Boo has delivered that pork. The fruit aka democrat will not lose unless it is his panties

I think he’s gone either way. Even if Mr. Run-a-house-of-prostitution-from-your-own-house-and-then-say-you-know-nothing-about-it wins, if the RATs lose their majority, than they say the leadership is going to take a powder anyway.
