Barney Frank: Today's Vote "One Of The Truly Great Coincidences In History Of Numerology"

With the bailout bill failing to pass in the House of Representatives, Democrats and Republicans are pointing the finger of blame at each other. Republicans have said that the Democrats' partisan tone is the reason the GOP couldn't get enough votes on their side. Democrats scoff at this, saying it's ludicrous that hurt feelings prevented Republicans from voting yes. Democratic Representative Barney Frank highlighted "one of the truly great coincidences in the history of numerology; the number of deeply offended Republicans who put feeling over country turned out to be exactly the number you would need to reverse the vote."
