Anyone see this interview with Barney Frank on 60 Minutes?
Typical fluff piece from Leslie Stahl. At first, she was asking some really tough questions, leading Frank to say, "Of course I like welfare, don't you?" Then he started to fire back, get on her case, and you can see her actually shrink during the interview. Then the rest of the piece was a description of Frank's crusade as a gay man :rolleyes: Because that's what everyone involved in the credit crisis cares about.
I thought it was interesting how he blamed everyone from Obama to Paulson regarding the current crisis, deflected questions about his own possible faults, and all but guaranteed that this problem would go away by the end of '09.
Oh yeah, and remember when everyone made a big deal because McCain said he doesn't use email? Barney Frank, Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, composes letters via dictaphone and has an ancient typewriter on his desk. That made me chuckle.
