Inspired by Frank won’t seek reelection to House (Washington Post 11/29/11) and Fearlessly, Frank made his mark (Robert Kaiser,11/29/11 page C1).
With a wit that would make his adversaries wince,
Barney Frank wasn’t one his words to mince.

Unlike rightists, Barney always made his criticisms fact-based
(It’s also nice that he’s not one of many forced out of Congress disgraced).
The best way Barney for his service to thank?
Let’s all try to be more like Congressman Frank.
Here’s Jon Stewart’s 11/29/11 report, including some choice anti-Frank invective from the Right.
