Jim Ready, Barney Frank's current pecker puffer, was caught heckling Sean Bielet, the GOP candidate running against Barney, after a debate in Brighton, Massachusetts. Mr. Ready, who has gone steady with the Congressman for the past few years, spoke highly of Mr. Frank's bedroom prowess, even though Barney was voted the shortest hitter on the celebrity circuit by polsters interviewed by the Boston Gaysette & Bugle Blower.
Although Barney has weathered many storms in his political career, the one that is most celebrated by his liberal constituents is when he allowed his then boyfriend to use his home for a gay brothel in exchange for sex. Although this might have been a career killer for most politicians, it seems to have enhanced the political appeal of Frank.
As Barney once said, "A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush."
