Westward ho!

West Virginia - Massachusetts Representative Barney Frank, the self-proclaimed reincarnate Don Quixote, and his band of 22 supporters are making their way west to 'out' actor Isaiah Washington on the set of his new show, Gay's Anatomy.

Washington, a Sierra Leonean-American and rumored homophobe, first entered Frank's crosshairs earlier this year when he made disparaging remarks about another minority group. Congressman Frank has cited 'The Frank Rule' which states that it is acceptable to out a closeted gay person if that person uses their power or notoriety to hurt gay people.

Controversial medium Derek Acorah now believes that Mr. Frank has actually been possessed by the spirit of Jorge Luis Borges' fictional writer Pierre Menard -- versus the authentic Don Quixote.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
