#2 U.S. Supreme Court should rule that Bawney Fwank is unconstitutional.

#3 "I wouldn't want it to go to the United States Supreme Court now because that homophobe Antonin Scalia has too many votes on this current court," said Frank.

So I guess there's more "homophobes" on the court, Barney? Care to name names?
And I guess if Scalia came back with "Barney's a deranged faggot nobody should listen to", that, of course, would be "hate speech", yes?

#7 I'm not a homophobe but Bawney scares the living $hit out of me. The current financial debacle, in large part, falls at Barney's doorstep.

#9 Homophobe

Rantburgers are expected never to be unreasonably fearful of anything, Angleton9.

Poor Congressman Frank. It must be dreadful to live in his universe.

#10 Scalia's opinions are read by judges and constitutional lawyers all over the world. They are cited in arguments made to the Supreme Courts of many nations.

#11 (2009-03-24) — After Rep. Barney Frank, D-MA, admitted he feared a Supreme Court ruling on homosexual marriage because “that homophobe Antonin Scalia has too many votes on this current Court“, the associate justice called on all Americans to “have patience with Rep. Frank as he struggles with his heterophobia.”
“Barney Frank, accustomed as he is to putting like with like, apparently fears things that are hetero…meaning different,” Mr. Scalia said. “Under our Constitution, the judicial and legislative branches are not homo — meaning the same. If the people want to create law about issues not mentioned in the Constitution, they have the power to do so through their elected representatives. The judiciary is a different branch, with different enumerated powers.”
Mr. Scalia refused to speculate about “whether Rep. Frank’s heterophobia is genetic or simply a lifestyle choice, but in either case,” he said, “it demonstrably weakens the constitution and harms society in general.”

Warning! Scrappleface!

#12 The proper response might be:

"That's in Congressman Frank's judgement. And based on his.. exploits... in the past, his judgement is questionable."

#13 I guess he's wrapping himself in the ol' rainbow flag to divert attention from AIG, Freddie, Fannie, and heaven knows what else.
