Barney Is Frank

I’m going to drop out of my usual apolitical mode to salute Barney Frank for saying what needs to be said to a certain faction in the so-called debate about health care. There are legitimate, if somewhat hard-hearted, arguments that might be made against the Democratic health-care proposals (e.g., their respective price-tags and who is going to pay for them). But no valid argument involves comparisons to Hitler or Stalin.

    I might have mentioned this before, but the two groups I despise most in this world are lawyers and politicians. However, I think I just found a new hero.

      Rep. Frank definitely has his moments. If more politicians had his nerve, the national conversation about health care might have a little less nonsense in it.
