    Couldn't agree more... and all I can think is about the hell storm that the neo-cons rained down on liberals the last time someone compared Dubya to Hitler.

    Un-fucking-believable... the cajones these people have to invoke Hitler, whose claim to fame was the systematic extinction of 6 million people! How they can possibly see a correlation between Hitler's campaign of murder, hatred and ignorance and Obama's proposals to change the US health care system? I lack any respect for them for even trying to link the two.

    Maybe Derrida was right... once an atrocity has been ended and written about as history, it has lost its power to shock and make us realize how horrible it is.

    seems like a man with that sense of wit and intelligence wouldn't be as complacent on obama's gay debbacle...

    I love Barney Frank. I really do. He should get a TV show where he and Michelle Bachman are roommates. Rahm Emanuel can play the wacky neighbor.

    I think he responded the way he needed to after encountering a nutcase like that woman.

    I was in a public space earlier today where they had a TV on, when Fake (Fox) News lashed out a Frank for insulting the public and his constituents. They did not show, or say what that woman said, or what any of the protesters said. All they showed was Frank's response and used the clip of him comparing her to a table, to make him look bad, and then spend 10 minutes attacking him for being rude. How can so many people in this country be so stupid to even watch Fox Lies (news) ? Are they all morons? Wait, I know that answer to that, never mind.

    Thank gawd a queen has more balls than most of these other Democratic politicians, and can lash back at these "ringers" and disrupters that the Republicans are sending to these town hall meetings. I may have some policy differences with Rep. Frank, but damn, he's got more courage & wits than most of his Democratic colleagues in Congress. Good going, Barney!

    They just had Michelle Bachmann on FUX News saying something about how Barney Frank spent the whole conversation talking down to a group of normal Americans who were trying to come together to talk about the health care reform. Set aside the fact that this idiotic bitch launched the whole "Obama is un-American" bullshit during the campaign, I can't believe she has the audacity to call people who act like this "normal!"

    The stupidity is literally stupifying!

    Dinning Room Table? Ouch.....

    Soon to enter the ring:

    Rush Limbaugh
    Ann Coulter
    Newt Gingrich
    and... Team Murdoch:
    Bill O'Reilly
    Glen Beck
    Sean Hannity

    Plan of action:
    1. Demonize Frank
    2. Reiterate 1st Admendment
    3. Lay out Democrats use of "ad hominen attacks" and ignore Republican ad hominens
    4. Vilify universal health care
    5. Support corporations, businesses, and downplay thevices of insurance companies
    6. Confuse Americans with exaggurated dooms-day predictions about health care reform
    7. Slander those on welfare, Social Security, and other government programs

    and always

    8. Bash Obama

    Oh ya "normal Americans"

    Normal Americans who disagree with Obama's health care reform (or other issues for that matter) do not compare him to Hitler.

    This is why I wish there were a way to weed out these idoits when it came time for elections... intelligence or cumalative knowledge test. That would be unAmerican and impossible though.

    I'm not a huge Barney Frank fan, but I still think his response to that nutcake of a woman was spot on. Those sort of people are so annoying. Thankfully, they are on the fringe and no one really takes them all that seriously.

    I wondered what the chances are of you defending the woman... glad to see common sense prevailed.

    The most frustrating part is this Obama = Hitler meme. The left needs to pounce on that and denounce it as unamerican the same way the fundies on Faux News would. It's disgusting, but works because the left does not slap back.

    Sometimes turning the other cheek just opens you up to being hit again. And politics is not a BDSM dungeon for $250 an hour!

    I saw this all over FB yesterday. He makes me proud to be from MA!
    I can't believe anyone who has any education on the holocaust and the nazi party would ever compare our president and current government to that.
    Its a really sick analogy.
    Things might be fucked up, things might be EXTREMELY fucked up (I'm more referring to when Bush was in power), but in no way are they even close to the atrocities of the nazis.
    I agree with Barney completely, these people are from outer space.

    Run, I might be sensitive, but I think telling a woman that discussing an issue with her is like arguing with a dining-room table is kind of a slap.

    This soundbite has gotten tons of airplay in the last news cycle. Consider the slap-back dealt.

    I think sticking a Hitler moustache on a picture of Barack Obama and comparing what he is doing to the extermination of 6 million Jews IS a slap... not "kind of"... IS!
