That "Maverick" democrat Barney Frank

I like Barney Frank. He is one those on the other side that I admire for being smart and damn good at his job.
He's got that Clinton like roving eye for a sweet young thang that almost got him tossed out of the House as well.

Frank is also a partisan pitbull, who aggressively defends democrat/liberal positions. Mr. Frank manages to do it with some class and manages to keep most of his facts straight. That's probably why he is pissed at at the low class actions of other democrats, namely DNC Chair Howard Dean.
Rep. Frank goes after Dean, as this Boston Globe article actually reports:

'That's just wrong," Frank said in an interview on the convention floor. ''I think Howard Dean was out of line talking about DeLay. The man has not been indicted. I don't like him, I disagree with some of what he does, but I don't think you, in a political speech, talk about a man as a criminal or his jail sentence."

Dean can rant (and lie) all he wants and throw raw meat to the far left faithful, but Mr. Frank is right.
Rep. DeLay has done nothing illegal, and the dems are desperately trying to hide the fact that their members have a long history of doing what they accuse him of.
