Barney Frank: Serving on Appropriations Committee in Republican House Will Be A 'Pain In The A--' Tuesday, November 23, 2010 By Nicholas Ballasy

(CNSNews.com) - House Financial Services Chairman Barney Frank (D.-Mass.) predicts that serving on the Appropriations Committee in the incoming Republican-majority House of Representatives will be a “great pain in the ass."

“Fascinating fact, apparently for the first time in anybody’s memory, members of Congress have declined seats on the Appropriations Committee," Frank said. "Republican members have said, ‘I don’t want to be on the Appropriations Committee.’ The Appropriations Committee, which has been a great plum, is now going to be a great pain in the ass because you’re going to be expected to come up with cuts in things that are very popular, et cetera.”

I did not know Biden was a Butt Pirate, but that kinda explains his "special" relationship to obama

No, I think Biden is just your regular, run of the mill hypocritical, blame the rich even when you are the rich liberal Pirate, but perhaps Gaffe Pirate is a better description

The new Speaker should appoint Bwarney Fwank to no committees. That way he can’t disrupt and he will have absolutely nothing he can tout when he runs for re-election.

Anybody from Massachusetts who votes for this old, wicked, depraved sodomite should be completely ashamed of themselves.

If this is the best representative Massachusetts can send they are a sorry lot indeed.

Well, gee Barney. With your vast experience and knowledge in such things, shouldn’t you just go back to BITING YOUR PILLOW until you get used to it?

Hey, you're dancin' with the big boys now, Bawney. Maybe you should reconsider your orientation if it proves painful.

“great pain in the ass."

Were most of his pleasure originates, should be loads of fun for him, sort of like Gloria Allred getting groped by the TSA.

A 'Pain In The A--'

Barney is finally bloviating about something he knows a lot about.

One might even say, he's an expert on the subject.

If serving on that committee is such a pain,I believe the Chairman would be most pleased to take Barney's letter of resignation. It is just one more case of good people dying and old Horses @$&*( like Barney live for ever. There is no Justice.
