Barney Frank (D, MA-04) refuses to answer a question.

The question being, “How much responsibility, if any, do you have for the financial crisis?

More here, and H/T Instapundit. I hope that the guy wasn’t actually expecting a substantive answer: there’s no way that Rep. Frank is going to admit that his party has been merrily contributing to our current mortgage disaster… and there’s no way that he’s going to give a definitive “no” to that question, either.  When you’ve been in Congress as long as Frank has, you learn to obfuscate, prevaricate, insinuate, and get irate when asked unfortunately pointed questions like that.

But, hey, his constituents and supporters are the types who’ll groove to hearing about right-wing deregulation conspiracies anyway, so I guess that he’s got a pretty good shtick going there.
