The Best of Barney Frank

Ryan Lizza has compiled some of Barney Frank’s best comebacks:

“I’m serious.”
—to Jason Zengerle of New York magazine, after the reporter chuckled when Frank told him his question was “stupid.”

“What is this, some kind of idiotic contest? Most interesting? That’s idiotic. Ask me something substantive, and I’ll answer it.”
—to Ryan Grim of the Huffington Post, after he asked Frank about the “most interesting thing to arise in an A.I.G. hearing.”

“That is the kind of argument that people who do not have any idea what they are talking about like to make.”
—to Lesley Stahl of “60 Minutes.”

Plenty more where those came from.
