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

By: David Freddoso

Online Opinion Editor

10/12/10 10:15 PM EDT

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.

I’m tempted to make a bondage fantasy joke, but that might not be suitable for a family-friendly site like this.

From The Boston Herald, Frank takes a vaction that cost us $200 Million:

Rival blasts Barney Frank’s swanky free jet ride

By Dave Wedge
Wednesday, October 13, 2010 -

U.S. Rep. Barney Frank, immersed in one of the toughest political fights of his career, took a free private jet to the Virgin Islands courtesy of a Maine congresswoman’s billionaire fiancée — whose company received a $200 million federal bailout, the Herald has learned.

Frank, who’s facing feisty Republican challenger Sean Bielat, flew to the tropical paradise for a vacation in 2009 on a $25 million jet owned by Paloma Partners honcho S. Donald Sussman, the fiancée of U.S. Rep. Chellie Pingree (D-Maine). Paloma Securities — a subsidiary of Sussman’s Greenwich, Conn.-based hedge fund — received $200 million in 2009 as part of the $180 billion federal bailout of troubled insurance giant AIG, records show.

The Coasters - "Along Came Jones"

I plopped down in my easy chair and turned on Channel 2
A bad gunslinger called Salty Sam was chasin' poor Sweet Sue
He trapped her in the old sawmill and said with an evil laugh,
"If you don't give me the deed to your ranch I'll saw you all in half!"
And then he grabbed her (and then)
He tied her up (and then)
He turned on the bandsaw (and then, and then...!)

[Chorus:]
And then along came Jones
Tall thin Jones
Slow-walkin' Jones
Slow-talkin' Jones
Along came long, lean, lanky Jones

Commercial came on, so I got up to get myself a snack
You should've seen what was goin' on by the time that I got back
Down in the old abandoned mine, Sweet Sue was havin' fits
That villain said, "Give me the deed to your ranch Or I'll blow you all to bits!"
And then he grabbed her (and then)
He tied her up (and then)
He lit the fuse to the dynamite (and then, and then...!)

[Chorus]

I got so bugged I turned it off and turned on another show
But there was the same old shoot-'em-up and the same old rodeo
Salty Sam was tryin' to stuff Sweet Sue in a burlap sack
He said, "If you don't give me the deed to your ranch I'm gonna throw you on the railroad tracks!"
And then he grabbed her (and then)
He tied her up (and then)
He threw her on the railroad tracks (and then)
A train started comin' (and then, and then...!)

[Chorus]

Tea Party Express targets Frank

By ALEX ISENSTADT | 10/12/10 3:57 PM EDT Updated: 10/12/10 4:29 PM EDT

After successfully targeting Republican establishment candidates in two Senate primaries, the Tea Party Express is taking aim at a new high-profile figure conservatives love to hate: Massachusetts Rep. Barney Frank.

The Tea Party Express will launch a radio ad campaign directed at the House Financial Services Committee chairman. The group sent an e-mail appeal to its supporters on Monday afternoon asking for donations to help power its campaign against Frank.

“He’s one of the worst offenders,” said Amy Kremer, chairwoman of the Sacramento, Calif.-based Tea Party Express. “It’s something we’ve heard from our people over and over again.”

“We’re trying to put a stop in that district,” said Kremer.

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.

What Barney has a talent for, he's gotten too old to be paid for by his boyfriends.

Let’s not get railroaded by the extreme right. Please help me fight back so we can preserve the ideals that make our country great.”

Yes, Barney's ideals like your live-in boy-toy running a male prostitution ring out of your residence, and destroying the mortgage market. Those ideals!

Too late now to turn my back
Conductor coming ticket in his hand
Come to claim my soul
Take me to his land

Hellbound Train I been so wrong
Too late now I’m moving on
Conductor standing watch in his hand
Got to get aboard take you to his land

I’m going down the road on the Hellbound Train
Take a long look lady ‘cause you won’t see me again
Take a last look lady, yes hard and long
‘Cause I’m going down the road on the Hellbound Train

“Yes, Barney’s ideals like your live-in boy-toy running a male prostitution ring out of your residence, and destroying the mortgage market. Those ideals! “

Yeah, I hear ya!

That just kind of went away.

Yet when a REPUBLICAN appears to be playing footsie in themen’s room, guilty or innocent it’sthe policital crime of the year!

Ole wiener mouth doesn’t impress me nor does his filthy; life style CHOICE is sex or money. Gee, maybe I need “sensitivity training.” I’ve hurt the FEELINGS of a perverted criminal.
