Barney Frank Does Not Suffer Fools Gladly...

...but, Fox "News" certainly does.

At Barney Frank's Townhall meeting in Dartmouth, Massachusetts, Frank smacked down an ignorant, paranoid, Lyndon LaRouche conspiracy supporter who compared President Obama (and his policies) to the Nazis & Hitler. After her short, practiced diatribe, she asked Frank, “Why do you continue to support a Nazi policy?’’

Barney, without missing a beat, her, “On what planet do you spend most of your time?’’

He ended his biting response by telling her, “Ma’am, trying to have a conversation with you would be like trying to argue with a dining room table. I have no interest in doing it.’’

From PoliticsNewsPolitics ():

This is how Fox News covered it, the incident. Let's just say they sympathized with ravings of this LaRouche woman and not that of the Congressman (via DKTV):


UPDATED I : This is how the fat, drug addicted Limpdick one reacted to Barney's smack down of this nutter - with a childish, homophobic joke (via News1News):



"Isn't it an established fact that Barney Frank himself spends most of his time living around Uranus?"
UPDATE II:
Fox's Brian Kilmeade blasts Frank's response to Obama=Hitler protester: Why couldn't he say, "I understand where you're coming from, but" Kilmeade adds of Frank: "Arrogance," "smugness," Ivy League elitism

From the August 19 broadcast of Fox News Radio's Brian & The Judge:


Back in the real world, Keith Olbermann included the incident in his first segment on last night's Countdown:
