Barney Frank Knows How to Deal with Teabaggers

Crooks and Liars, Exclusive: The Rest Of That Barney Frank Town Hall Meeting With The Teabaggers:

Anyone who is aware of all Internet traditions has by now seen the footage of Barney Frank taking down the Larouchie who asked him if he would support a “Nazi policy” by asking her, “On what planet do you spend most of your time?” But Rep. Frank was in rare form that night, standing up to the uninformed shrieking of the right and offering a real lesson in how to argue with conservatives. Rep. Frank's office provided C&L with the tapes of that town hall meeting in Dartmouth from last week, and I put together a sort of greatest hits reel.

I wanted to illustrate this with a picture of what is probably my all-time-favorite US campaign poster, Frank's c. 1980-82 campaign poster with a rumpled candidate and the slogan “neatness isn't everything” … but strangely I couldn't find a copy of the image online.

    The St Petersburg Times had an Op Ed where they say.. “Rep Barney Frank has a campaign poster in his office that says, ‘Neatness Isn’t Everything’. ” Contact Barney directly and maybe they’ll shoot you an IPhone photo .
