Skip to comments.Injured Barney Frank appears in sling on House floor
Posted on 12/19/2011 2:40:09 PM PST by COUNTrecount
Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), who announced earlier this year that he would not seek re-election in 2012, appeared on the House floor Wednesday in a t-shirt, jacket and with his left arm in a sling, but explained to members of the House that his injuries were minor.
"I deeply appreciate the solicitude of my colleagues on my appearance," he said. "I want to first assure them that there is much less here than meets the eye."
Frank said he wanted to explain it once to all members of the House so he would not have to repeat it, since "responding to it 400 times would seem a bit excessive."
Frank said a torn ligament was discovered, presumably in his left arm or shoulder, but that it was "easily repaired today."
"This had nothing to do with my retirement," he said. "At no point during my 31 years here was this ligament ever essential to the performance of my duties."
This isn't the first time Frank has shown up in a sling or discussed his health with his colleagues. He has also shown he gets tired when people show concern about an injury.

What a sicko. Good riddance..
>> He needs a bra.
Yeah. Z cup.
I wonder why his nipples are hard. There must be a male intern bending over near the camera and he caught bawney’s eye.
Well, he got that part right.
He does need a bra.
A disgusting piece of fecal matter-—trying to destroy the fundamental moral principles of this country and put us under Satan’s standards of depravity and vulgar behaviors exactly like the Weimar Republic.
Forcing our schools and media to brainwash and condition our children to think such depraved, inhumane behaviors are “natural” and “good”.
How he bribed and bought out people to get power and keep it. He should be in prison and have the keys thrown in the toilet.
A string of pearls would have nicely completed the ensemble.
Guess they are keeping the temperature cool in the House this December. /manboobs
Barney into a little S&M...
Barney has a fine set of Yabas there.
“I want to first assure them that there is much less here than meets the eye.” Frank said
.....the overstatement of the year.
Somebody kicked Lindsey Graham in the ass and broke Barney Frank's thumb as a result.
He's into a lot of S&M (Socialism & Mandates...especially Man-dates)
You are bad. :)
You mean a BRO-zier?
Grabbed the wrong butt at a bar.
Now, Re COUNTrecount's posts:
Looking up at old Barn in all his glory... I feel it is only fair that I post this... for all the guys who like gals!
And being Fair 'n Balanced, I post this... for all the gals who like gals--
It is not logical, Bender... for the temperature to be low enough in the House of Representatives to produce that results.
It is so, Spock, if I... am in Barney's line of sight!
Well, if both Shep and Barney are here, I'm covering up my assets... and getting out of Dodge!
Come home to Momma Megyn, Bendy... and I'll keep your assets warm!
Now, who, I ask... can refuse an invite like that?
Maybe he was "twowwing for qweews with his two-button t-shirt.
