Forum Post: We need a real liberal to run for Barney Frank's seat

A solid counterpart for Elizabeth Warren (running for Senate against Scott Brown) that will join him in "welcom[ing] their hatred." Any ideas?

Note: this is NOT a defense of Barney Frank - I don't know where people are getting this. Quite the opposite.

Who in their right mind would want that spot? Only another puppet will take it.

We have to start somewhere.

I'm not gunning for a revolution, in case that's not obvious.

Barney Frank helped get us in the mess. He might have been a fall guy for the Republicans in a measure to obscure Phil Gram and his repeal of Glass Steagall, but it still holds true that he bares some responsibility.

I agree. We need to replace him with...? Where's the house counterpart to Warren - someone the banksters hate?

We need someone who is not beholden to special interests... that precludes any politician, liberal or conservative

You realize Elizabeth Warren is just another tough on drugs & tough on Iran Democrat, right? Fuck everything about that woman.

Fuck everything about that woman.

That's what the plutocrats say, too. Maybe you could find more common cause with them.

And she's so tough on Iran she's being criticized by the GOP for nuance? Whatever.

Who the heck are "the plutocrats"? Look, no way I'm putting my hope in another "all options on the table" Dem.

Anthony Wiener should be rehabilitated by then he'll practically be a fresh face! Beautiful wife, new baby, cruelly cast out by evil Republicans it'll be an American story of rebirth!

He did it to himself.

Yeah, in that one pic where his little dick was all stiffy there's no question he did that himself. But even then he did a fine job! Imagine how hard it would be to spank the monkey and get a clear pic, is there nothing the man can't do??

Barney frank is one of the corrupt politicians who got us in this mess. Open your eyes to the truth.

This was not advocacy for Barney Frank.
