Barney Frank: Tea Partiers have tied me to the railroad tracks!

By: David Freddoso

This has to be one of the more colorful fundraising emails of the cycle, from Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass.:

Today, the “Tea Party Express” announced that not only has it made my one of their top targets in the entire nation, they are formally endorsing my opponent..

*snip*

The Tea Party Express also announced a that it will make a special stop in Massachusetts just before the election in order to defeat me.

The Tea Party Express thinks that it has me tied to the tracks. The right-wing is readying its engines. Fox News and talk radio are ready to call the play-by-play.

What a drama queen. Barney Frank has tied the American public to the track by way of his deep involvement in the development of the housing/mortgage crisis. I can think of few people less deserving for re-election. It’s bizarre that he’s even trying to run this year. Any sensible person would look at the damage done and quietly retire or slink off to another occupation that they may actually have a talent for.

Wouldn't it be nice, metaphorically speaking of course, if the tea party express train ran him over and we never heard of Bawrney again?

If all that maggot gets is cut into pieces by a motive engine he is getting off easy.

That pos will be in office until he either keels or gets hauled off in a strait jacket.

His district is safe, they are mostly pig lawyers or trust fund retard inbreds. The votes cast in the marginal precincts (middle/lower class) will evaporate like the a morning mist before the tally.

It is a Massachusetts thing. Been going on for a long time.

All parties will agree.

hope you haven’t come into the wrong state, in the south. N.C. is competing with California for the highest taxes and most ignorant legislation. Those in N.C. are attempting to fix things but the state went for 0. Welcome to the south.

Most of the voters in his district lost a major part of their net worth, their home equity, because of this loser. Hopefully they will remember on Nov. 2nd.

Hey, Barney, there’s a train coming down the tracks on November 2nd and you can’t stop this conservative locomotive.

Barney should be in prison.....then again, he’d probably enjoy being locked up in a building with a thousand other guys.

It might happen!

More from the www:

Eye On ...(nymag.com)

Massachusetts-4:

The Tea Party Express, the tea-party group that helped push Joe Miller and Christine O'Donnell to come-from-behind victories, are apparently targeting longtime Massachusetts Democrat Barney Frank. According to Politico, it'll start airing radio ads against Frank and is asking supporters for money. Frank's seat is considered safe ... but that's what they said about Lisa Murkowski and Mike Castle, too, at one point. This year, you really never know. For what it's worth, Frank's opponent, Sean Bielat, released an internal poll in late September showing him within ten points of Frank.

And from the Wall Street Journal:

CROSS COUNTRY

The Marine Who Has Barney Frank Worried

In a district where Scott Brown won, Sean Bielat mounts a serious challenge.

By JAMES TARANTO

Fall River, Mass.

'I don't consider myself a tea party candidate," Sean Bielat tells me over dinner. "I don't know what it means." But an hour later Mr. Bielat, Rep. Barney Frank's Republican challenger, receives a hero's welcome at the Spindle City Tea Party, a gathering of nearly 200 citizen- activists in this economically depressed mill town. As he approaches the stage, they stand, applauding and chanting "Go, Sean, go!"

What he tells them is consistent with this reporter's view of the tea party: "I'm starting to think that people want to take this country back—that people no longer believe that the government has the answers for our betterment, that the government can tell them how they should use their money. People believe that they have the power to create their own opportunity, if only they are given the chance. . . . There is so much wrong in Washington, I almost don't know where to start."

Of course it’s open to interpretation, as it represents events that happened a hundred years ago.
