Moe Lane posts a good tutorial for Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA), who states in a recorded interview that he simply lacks knowledge regarding the distinguishing visual characteristics of Cannabis, notwithstanding the fact that he is apparently co-sponsoring a bill having to do with medical marijuana. Be sure to click on the play button to watch and listen to the video clip at the link above for the full background of the story.
It matters very little to me that Rep. Frank's boyfriend was busted for growing pot in Maine while the congressman was with him (how hardy are those plants, anyway, to grow that far north?). But for him to be either lying to the reporter regarding his lack of knowledge, or to be so uninformed even though he is deeply involved in related federal legislation, I am not sure which is worse. Also, an apparent implication of the TV news piece is that Rep. Frank didn't know what his boyfriend's bong was and what its uses were. One shudders at what Rep. Frank might have thought about the proper application of such a device, with its long, wide, colorful tube.
Finally, since Rep. Frank needs to improve his "outdoorsman" skills, he ought to be suitably dressed. Don't you think he would look smashing in a new Buffalo Check Wool Shirt from Woolrich?

It took good old Barney a while to become aware about the prostitution ring his then boyfriend was running out of Barney's apartment circa 1990. So why should we surprised at his current lack of awareness? He sponsors a medical marijuana bill, but has no idea what a marijuana plant is like. Ditto Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac: not a clue.
Clueless Barney. None but the best for the Commonwealth.
No doubt, he knows all about these.
I have now seen three different blogs that mention that Barney Frank had two *ahem* “awareness problems regarding lovers, one involving male prostitution and one involving marijuana. (Not that the MSM gives a damn.)
And no one is mentioning lover number three for our congressional friend and benefactor…. just Google “Herb Moses”
I’ll help -
“Mr. Moses….spent the past seven years at Fannie Mae, most recently as director of housing initiatives. Over the course of time, he played an instrumental role in developing the company’s Title One and 203(k) home improvement lending programs.”
And of course, courtesy of our MSM, virtually no one knows that he was having a long term intimate relationship with a prominent member of the House Banking Committee at the time. I’m sure any Republican would have gotten the same treatment. *cough* *cough*
So some of us now know that Barney’s boyz were involved in prostitution, and that some were involved in illegal drugs.
Virtually no one knows that one of Barney’s boy toyz helped drive Fannie Mae into the ground, and brought us to where we are economically today.
But that’s just small potatoes, I suppose.
And guess what……? Barney Frank will be re-elected, again! Without a shadow of a doubt. By a landslide.
Tell me something has not gone seriously awry out there.
