The benefits of a competitive election.
Political competition is a wonderful thing. To wit, it is even making a more honest politician out of Barney Frankwell, sort of.
Mr. Frank is facing his first serious electoral challenge since 1980 from Marine officer and business executive Sean Bielat, and the liberal baron is making some remarkable concessions to the public mood.
For example, he seems newly sympathetic to the plight of small business, saying that he now favors repealing ObamaCare's infamous new Form 1099 reporting requirements for detailing purchases with any contractor above $600. Mr. Bielat has been hammering away on the issue since Democrats in Congress have refused to repeal the provision, but Mr. Frank now calls it "a mistake" and claims he's "determined" to ensure that Congress repeals it.
Also in the Political Wonders Department, Mr. Frank is conceding at long last that he missed the looming disasters at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. "I was late in seeing it, no question," he told the Boston Globe, though in his redoubtable fashion he also has an excuse.

"Sean worked his way through college and graduate school, aided by scholarships and the GI Bill.
To be added or removed from the
"The Wall Street Journal" Ping List,
He certainly wasn’t properly reared...
The headline is gross.
My muscles hurt because I’m laughing so hard.
...We asked Mr. Frank's office for his letter to the committee but didn't receive it before our deadline Thursday. We assume the press corps and Mr. Bielat will want to follow up.
Well, Mr Bielat will want to, certainly. But, don't hold your breath waiting for the MSM press corps at large to do any following up.
I think we can all agree that it should be a FR priority to get rid of Bwaney.
And, if you disagree with me, you are simply being very contrary.

But I laughed.
Thank you, Sparky1776.

Wow! Bonnie Fwank thounds jutht wike that, too!!!!
I don’t know if Sean can pull it off this year..but if not, I hope he stays around and tries again in 2012. If Barnet wins..I think he might retire..he’s not going to enjoy life in the minority..
