Barney Frank Speaks Truth To Idiocy On Healthcare

Wingnut:  Why do you continue to support a Nazi policy, as Obama has expressly supported this policy, why are you supporting it?

The Honorable Barney Frank:  When you ask me that question, I am gonna revert to my ethnic heritage, and answer your question with a question.  On what planet do you spend most of your time?...You want me to answer the question?  As you stand there with a picture of the president defaced to look like Hitler, and compare the effort to increase health care to the Nazis, my answer to you is as I said before, it is a tribute to the 1st Amendment that this kind of vile, contemptible nonsense is so freely propagated. 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.

It’s about time politicians stop pretending that these people make any sense whatsoever.  Good for Frank for telling this woman in no short order how ridiculous she truly is.
