Our Patrician Lords And Masters

The Twin Cities media glitterati are getting their yuks over this bit here today; Barney Frank on Michele Bachmann’s 10,000 interlopers:

Democratic Rep. Barney Frank took a dig Friday at the Republican lawmaker who organized a protest by conservatives against health care legislation.Frank, a Massachusetts liberal, told an audience: “Some of the people (at the rally) that wanted to engage me in conversation appeared to have been the losers in the ‘Are you smarter than Michele Bachmann contest?’.”

That’s right, hoi polloi.  Stay out in flyoverland, where you belong.  Let your Patrician Lords and Masters do all the thinking for you.  That’s why they have the eternal sinecures; the club membership that never ever expires.

(It’s why they need the Deluxe Congressional Healthcare plan; dealing with all of you sluggards is so stressful, the mere prole “public” plan won’t cut it!)

Rep. Bachmann, R-Minn., had organized Thursday’s rally attended by thousands of conservatives critical of the Democrats’ health care plan. Her spokeswoman did not respond to requests for comment. Frank, who recently compared arguing with an angry voter to conversing with a dining room table, said this week’s protest was like being trapped inside a furniture warehouse.

How cool would it be if the voters of Massachussetts relieved Mr. Frank of the onerous duty of having to deal with all of us troublesome effing peasants for the rest of life?

A guy can dream.

  1. Someone just posted this on the Star-Tribune web site comments:

    No wait, I can’t copy/paste it here. Oh, what the heck…..Delete is you don’t want this here (unless it comes from AC)…from “nortcyd”:

    At least he disproves a long time myth……
    I was always under the impression that sperm would soothe the throat. His just keeps getting raspier…….

  2. Blarney Frank has been hanging out with his boyfriend and doing too much pot to care about the hoi polloi.

    And, uh, Blarney? You really shouldn’t be questioning someone’s intelligence when you’ve come up with these lines about your boyfriend’s growing of marijuana (from the the article): He also tells us that he wouldn’t recognize a marijuana plant if he saw one because he is, “not a great outdoorsman,” and ,”wouldn’t recognize most plants.”

  3. He may not be up to date with his flora, but where gerbils are concerned, I’m betting he’s the Jane Goodall of the bathhouse crowd.

  4. After listening to Barney’s denial of things botanical, I have concluded that he was a loser in the “Are you more honest than Tom Petters” contest.
