In the aftermath of Barney Frank‘s “What planet are you on?/Trying to have a conversation with you would be like arguing with a dining room table” bark to the crazy-lady constituent who recently invoked Nazism in referring to Barack Obama‘s health plan, the Boston blog That Hottness offers up the “Top 5 Barney Frank Takedowns.”

At least those caught on film.

They’re not all exactly takedowns; some are just good comebacks. There is a difference. Confusing the two has serious implications for determining whether Frank is, in fact, as I said in an earlier post, mean.

I say again: He is. Even – perhaps especially – if he’s right.
