Barney Frank Comes Out For Clinton

barneyfrank3-1.jpg
No doubt Democrat Hillary Clinton’s a happy camper today. The Senator just got another homo-politico vote from Barney Frank, who proudly threw his political weight behind her candidacy yesterday.

Celebrating Clinton’s commitment to queer causes, Frank called the former first lady “the candidate best equipped to pass laws that will treat all Americans with dignity, fairness and equality no matter who they are or who they love.” The 67-year old politico continued:

I have from the beginning of this campaign believed that Hillary Clinton was the candidate best qualified to serve as president.

I am convinced that once elected, the qualities she will bring to the job — commitment, intellect and political skills — will make her an extremely effective leader in our effort to reverse the badly flawed course on which George Bush and past Republican Congresses have set this country.

She has shown an ability to fight for progressive values in a way that is capable of appealing to the majority of our fellow citizens, and I believe that she is both politically and substantively the candidate best qualified to be our nominee.

Frank isn’t the first gay politician to give Clinton a vote. Lesbian Representative Tammy Baldwin endorsed Clinton earlier this year, but made sure to object to Clinton’s civil union-centric gay politics. Frank neglected to address the matter, nor did he mention that his sister, Ann Lewis also works for the campaign.

In addition to giving Clinton his pink vote, Frank will work as her campaign’s economic adviser. Discussing the political moves yesterday, Senator Clinton had nothing but praise for Frank:

“I’m honored to have the support of one of the sharpest minds in Congress. Barney has devoted his life to championing economic fairness and civil rights and expanding opportunity for all Americans. I’m delighted he’ll take a leadership role in our campaign.

Oh, yes, we are, too! Actually, the idea of Frank and Clinton working together sort of gives us an erection. No, not really, but we bet it has done for a lot of other people, not least of all Hillary Clinton.

      Barney failed to file Form 839C as required to mention that his sister who’s been involved in politics longer than he has WORKS FOR THE CLINTON CAMPAIGN? Scandalous! Off with both their heads!

      But we digress…. The REAL throbbing, if tiny, hard ons about all this will spring from His Holiness, Pope RES, and his partner in slime, Comrade Perdue, the Oldest Living Fag for Stalin. Hurry, someone, anyone, wake them from the homespun mats on the dirt floors of their berm caves. Now they have PROOF that Hillary & Barney & Tammy have been plotting together all along! That all the Great Pumpkins, er Evil Democratic Party members have been secretly working together all along, conspiring to end civilization as we know it and cart gays and Ts off to concentration camps. If Hillary’s elected, nay, ANY Devious Democrat, gay bars will be raided again and boarded shut. If Hillary’s elected, nay, ANY Devious Democrat, Madonna records and Reichen calendars will be burned in a massive bonfire on, wait for it, FIRE Island! If Hillary’s elected, nay, ANY Devious Democrat, Carson and Ross the Intern and William Sledd and Chris Crocker will be forced into Remedial S’s Classes.
      If Hillary’s elected, nay, ANY Devious Democrat, circuit parties will become prayer meetings led by Rupert Murdoch. If Hillary’s elected, nay, ANY Devious Democrat, all the poor of the world will be sent to slaughter houses to be turned into pate for the Evil Rich like Nancy Pelosi. LGBTs with children will lose custody of them, and they will be shipped off to military boarding schools in one of the three countries carved from the former Iraq where they will be taught the NEW alphabet: DOMADADTNAFTADLCMONEY! Oh, the horror!! Bill! Bill! Your Holiness! Wake up!!!! We need you to tell us how to think!!! Grab a bag of pseudo intellectual polysyllabic words exaggerations and idiotic juxtapositions of facts and half-facts and outright lies like you always do and ENLIGHTEN US!!! The Mongols are upon us! SAAAAAAAAAAAVVVE US!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      10…9….8….7….6….5………

      Did that stone hit your glass house, eh????

      You are so amusingly despicable in both your disrespectful tones and your vulgarisms. Amusing because most here are attuned to your verbal diarrhea for years now, and the “newbies” learn quickly which person wishes to be the alphaqueen. ROFL.

      You never produce anything more from me than a brief and expected chuckle. I imagine him sitting in a single wide trailer with thesaurus and amusing quips in tow. He reminds me of her in the GLASS MENAGERIE. Yes, HER !!!! okay….Blanche Dubois in STREETCAR.

      Gay fascists are so …thirties…so Ernst Roehm…so deserving of their final moments still praising those who destroy them..

      As the bullets fly….I can hear Leland screaming or shreiking out ” Hail Hillary ! Hail Capitalism ! Hail Fascism !!! Hail Atheism and Hello Nothing !!!!

      Not so surprising about Frank and Clinton. Birds of a feather… vultures in this case.

      The only weird thing is that it triggered one of Frances’ creepiest hissy fits in a long time. Reichen must have thrown him out of bed again.
