Dem Rep. Barney Frank Smacks Down GOP Rep. Renzi

The Democratic congressman from Massachusetts puts the GOP representative from Arizona in his place while debating the N.Y. Times censure issue.


Crooks and Liars:

Way to go Barney, He stood up and schooled Rick Renzi (R-AZ) over his behavior. This nonsense about the NY Times is making the right wingers absolutely insane and is totally without merit.

Frank: I yield myself 10 seconds to point out yes, it?s true, Ms. Pelosi was briefed in 2002 at the beginning of the program. She is not a fortuneteller.

Renzi: Whoa..

Frank: No, the gentleman wouldn?t yield.

Renzi: {garbled}

Frank: Regular order! Regular order! I ask the gentleman be seated. I asked the gentleman when he mentioned me to yield. He declined to do so. For him to interrupt me without even asking for a yield is wholly outside the rules of the house and I asked he be instructed in them?
