The Boston Herald’s Michael Graham, who is somehow managing to hold it together at the tragic news that Barney Frank is cutting and running:
Barney Frank is leaving office at the end of his term. Maybe he just wants to spend more quality time with his pot-growing prostitute friends in the sub-prime lending business.
I apologize for the mean-spiritedness of that last comment. It’s particularly mean-spirited because it’s demonstrably true.
Not to mention, restrained.
PS: The conventional wisdom is hardening that Frank is cutting and running because redistricting really did hurt him. I dunno if I really buy into that, but the upcoming brawl for the seat should still be interesting to watch.
