Update – Pweditowy Wending

A remarkable thing happened.  CNBC actually ran a story criticizing Barney Frank!  I am not going to get all giddy that they finally got it, but Frank is just so brash in his claims that even the left media has to point it out.  Pay particular attention to the conversation between the anchors at the end of the clip as they explain why they did not point out Frank’s lies to his face.

Pweditowy Wending

Barney Frank (D-MA) may be the quintessential corrupt (allegedly) politician on Earth.  That’s saying something these day with the likes of Rangell, Waters, and Jefferson evading taxes, helping friends and hiding cash in the freezer.  Countless journalists have investigated and provided a significant amount of proof of Frank’s fingerprints all over the implosion of the housing market resulting in a global economic meltdown.  In his chutzpah he and equally sleazy Chris Dodd (D-CT) had the unmitigated gall to write financial regulations.  Even sicker was watching this bill pass and get signed into law.

Update March 27, 2009:  Rich Santelli started a firestorm (in a great way) across the United States with his comments a month ago.  Tea parties have been been held across the country attracting up to 15,000 at an event in California.  Glenn Beck has championed the tea party movement and has provided a link to planned events.  April 15 seems to be THE big day for tea parties with an estimated 150 planned.

In a recent posting on the Investor’s Business Daily Editorials page, they questioned the lack of coverage by the mainstream media.  I think that many of us who no longer get their news from traditional sources know why.
