Bye Bye, Barney

We won’t have Barney Frank to kick around any more and vice versa – here’s Dana Milbank on Barney the Bully.

This was inspired by one of my favorite Don Wright cartoons. Unfortunately I can’t seem to find a link to it. The cartoon featured a Vietnamese family standing in a landscape of bomb craters waving thanks to American jets as they flew away at the end of the war.

I’ve always considered Barney Frank just as much a friend to the poor as we were to the Vietnamese.
