Quote of the morning

Rep. Barney Frank sets a retirement date

Topics: War Room, Barney Frank, D-Mass.,

Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., in an interview with Politico:

The left and the right live in parallel universes. The right listens to talk radio, the left’s on the Internet and they just reinforce one another. They have no sense of reality …. I have now one ambition: to retire before it becomes essential to tweet.

Oh, congressman. That’s a nice ambition to have, but let me tell you, I know from personal experience — it dies pretty easy.
