During an appearance on Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC show last night, Dem. Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) joined to talk about the economy…


…During that discussion, the almost unmistakeable sound of Frank passing gas could be heard. And the almost unmistakeable sight of him lifting his leg was visible…

    Funny, same thing happens when he opens his mouth.

    It’s the most notable thing he’s done in his career that didn’t involve corruption.

    Due to his sexual preference, I’m surprised that his farts make any sound.

    From Drudge: “UPDATE: DNA no match for D.B. Cooper…”

    C’mon, people – who actually thought he would have used his own name?

    A modicum of decorum, if you please Mr. Fwank.

    His boyfriend broke the seal on his ass gasket just before the broadcast.

    I can’t believe Maddow didn’t go into a fit of giggles uttering 23 fart jokes like she did with “teabagger”.

    Well what do you expect from Barney ‘bang’em from behind’ Frank? Manners?

    Not. Clicking. Nope.

    How did the audio guy tell the difference?

    From the comments it sounds like madcow couldn’t.

    No way Barney’s worn out love tunnel could still pucker enough to make that sound unassisted. Must be a used Trojan stuck in there.

    I don’t think it was gas exiting, more likely his latest boyfriend’s love juice.

  21. Posted August 9, 2011 at 9:40 pm |

    Probably wasn’t really a fart, after all.

    More likely, it was the gerbil’s sad, last, dying breath.

    Barney the Frank would rather hear a fat boy fart than a pretty girl sing!
