Here's to Barney Frank. Finally, someone stood up for common sense!
I think that we've all about had it with the right-wing extremists' behavior at the town halls this month. From the misinformation and lies to violence and vandalism, anti-reformers have tried to squash reasonable debate at these events.
You've probably seen video of Rep. Frank confronting a town hall attendee after she asked him why he continues to support a "Nazi policy" like health care reform. He highlighted the offensive lunacy of her premise (comparing President Obama to Hitler) by asking her directly, "On what planet do you spend most of your time?"
If you haven't seen the video yet, you really must. Click here to watch.
We were thrilled to hear Rep. Frank call this woman out for her ridiculous and hateful comments. So thrilled, in fact, that we wanted to commemorate the occasion with the button you see here.
