Jon Stewart Gives Props To Barney Frank (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

By now we have all seen the signs, heard the shouts, watched the footage of protesters calling Obama a nazi for trying to reform health care. And, until this week, they had all gotten away with it. Enter Barney Frank. At a health care town hall in Dartmouth, MA, a woman asked, "Why are you supporting this nazi policy?"

Frank responded with a question asking,"On what planet do you spend most of your time?" He called her question "vile, contemptible nonsense," and said "Trying to have a conversation with you would be like arguing with a dining room table." The latter statement has already become an Internet meme.

Jon Stewart gave Frank "snaps" last night and suggested other insults he could use in the future.
