For the past two decades, I’ve had the distinct pleasure of blanking Barney Frank in his reelection campaigns for 4th District Congressman from Massachusetts.
So imagine my surprise when I received a “Barney Frank for Congress” newsletter in the mail this week.
Surely, I thought, this can’t be about whatever tomato can Barney will dispatch next November. It must be about something much more important.
And it was.
It was about Barney.
And the people who are being mean to him.
Largely because I am chairman of an important committee and a leader in the effort to adopt the new [financial] reforms, these groups have completely distorted my record and sought to place the blame on those of us working to put more fairness into our economic system.
Yes, well, that’s what all the Chairmen of Important Committees say.
Message to Barney: You’re nothing special, despite what your Mom told you.
