Barney's Going Bye-bye! 

After 16 terms in the House of Representatives, Barney Frank (D-MA) is not standing for re-election. Hoo-raw!

Not that my opinion matters all that much, but I think Mr. Frank and his co-conspirator former Sen. Chris Dodd are the two individuals most to blame for the housing meltdown in 2008 and the subsequent spiral into worldwide recession, the effects of which are still being felt here and abroad, as well as the additional regulatory burden that has done so much to retard the recovery.

I have no idea what the underlying reasons might be for Mr. Frank's retirement at this time, but whatever they are, his departure is good news for the Republic.

Now the good people of Massachusetts have an opportunity to move toward redemption by electing someone in Mr. Frank's place who won't lie, browbeat, intimidate and pontificate, and who might actually have some appreciation for the laws of economics.
