– Legislative superqueero Barney Frank reacting to Newt Gingrich’s statement at last night’s GOP debate—Gingrich said that Frank and Chris Dodd should go to jail for the nation’s economic downturn. Gingrich is against marriage equality even though he’s been married three times. He also once named a porn executive as “Entrepreneur of the Year” (NSFW).
“It’s interesting, the charge is failure to stop Newt Gingrich and Tom Delay from deregulating. This notion we caused the problem that started while they were in charge even by Gingrich’s standards is very odd. I wish I knew that he was willing to listen to my advice, I would have given him some: I would have told him not to impeach Clinton, I would have told his successors not to go to war with Iraq, and I would have told DeLay not to go on the dance show.”
