Barney Frank

Thanks to DemfromCT:

"It's a rule in American politics," said Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), "that whichever side denounces the other for politicizing the issue is losing the argument."

  • The Frank Theorem. I love it. The Jon Stewart Corollary:

    "People who don't want to play The Blame Game--they're the ones who are to blame."

  • My version: the first one to say “politicize” is the one who’s politicizing.

    All I want are the facts. I’m 100% confident that an honest, thorough investigation would implicate some D’s. Fine. If they effed up, then they need to be held accountable.

    All this talk about finger pointing, blame game, looting, FEMA, local government – it’s all red herring.

    Norquist got what he wanted, and it hurt us all. Let’s help everyone connect the dots (they’re a lot closer now) and start cleaning up this mess.
