Hell Officially Freezes Over

Barney Frank has declared that Fannie and Freddie "should be abolished."

Good to finally hear from the guy who, more than anyone else, helped keep those zombies alive long enough to sink the American economy. Still, I trust Frank about as far as my wimpy biceps can throw him, so I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop before saying anything more.

[Except this prediction: A week from now he'll advocate explicitly nationalizing the function, abandoning fascism in favor of socialism.]

Same old game: He stuck his "wet willy" in the air, detected a shift in the wind of popular emotionalism, and spewed something accordingly.
