I’ve always been such a big admirer of Barney Frank, on so many different levels. So I was genuinely surprised, really shocked to see this statement he put out tonight that is just an embodiment of fecklessness, resignation, defeatism and just plan folly. The gist of his point is that that’s it for health care reform. If a few Republican senators will come across the aisle and help maybe it will happen. But if not, that’s it. Amazing. Just amazing.
