Barney Frank is a National Treasure

How diminished our national discourse would be without him. He's a one-man quote factory. This is my favorite since the "dining room table" quip. Via Crooks and Liars:
I've already voted to raise the debt limit. I voted to raise it earlier this year straight forward. And by the way, it's not my debt limit. I voted against the war in Iraq and I voted against the Bush tax cuts. On my debt limit, I got a couple trillion left to go. I was very generous. I voted to raise the other people's debt.


  1. Mark, I already can't remember how I happened upon your blog a couple of weeks ago, but I did, and have it on my blog roll. Been popping in and out ever since. Nice nod to Barney Frank here.

  2. Well thanks! Is that Seana from Santa Cruz? I can't see your face in that tiny photo!

  3. Yep. It's me. I wouldn't worry about the photo as it's a couple of years old, but I don't have another digital one to replace it.

    Tom Maderos has a blog of his art these days too, so the old, old Bookshop crew is hitting the web, I guess.
