Barney Frank Plans Trans Rights Spanking

Keep tomorrow at 11:30am open, ’cause openly gay Representative Barney Frank’s holding a press conference tomorrow to yell at “single-issue factions”. We wonder what that means. Here’s the curt, fatherly press release:

Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) will hold a press conference tomorrow, Thursday, October 11, at 11:30 a.m. The subject will be the obligation of the Democratic Party to govern responsibly when confronted by a demand to react emotionally by a deeply committed, single-issue faction insisting on putting ideological purity over achievable advancement of our values.

The specific example discussed will be the current demand that the Democratic leadership kill the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which has been the prime legislative goal for gay and lesbian people for over 30 years, because we do not have the votes to include people who are transgender.

Does this mean we’re grounded, or something?
