It Gets Better: Barney Frank

Posted by on Thu, Sep 8, 2011 at 10:01 AM

Barney gives credit where credit is due: to courageous LGBT youth who are coming out in ever-larger numbers, liberating themselves from their closets while at the same time liberating their heterosexual peers from their prejudices. Not every LGBT kid is in a position to come out—some are trapped in families and communities that are simply too hateful for a kid to risk coming out—but more and more LGBT kids are out and they're helping to change the world.

Oh thank you, Barney, oh thank you.......

Gee, wasn't that Michael Paese, former Barney Franks' lackey, now top lobbyist for Goldman Sachs, who handed Barney the GS stuff to place into that Dodd-Frank "financial reform" Act, without making any edits whatsoever?????

It gets so much better that you too can run a male brothel out of your house, just like Barney!

Barney has his faults, but he's one of the smartest people in elected office (yeah, not a huge accomplishment...) and he seems to be a guy who wants to cut the bullshit and make this a better country for everyone. This was a great video.

@3, no you don't. I'm a lesbian and frankly the whole running a whorehouse out of your home while working in politics was pretty embarassing. You wouldn't see Tammy Baldwin (gay dem from Wisconsin) pull that shit.

Barney stood up to the manufactured moral outrage, stared it down, and kept his place in politics, unlike Anthony Wiener and Elliott Spitzer, who ran away when things hit the fan.

So he's not a lesbian. So what? Is the troll suddenly in touch with his feminine side?
