I Loves Me Some Barney Frank

He's funny looking and talks funny, but Massachusetts Representative Barney Fran has a way with words. Here are his comments about Republican efforts to preserve funding for the F-22:

These arguments will come from the very people who denied that the economic recovery plan created any jobs. We have a very odd economic philosophy in Washington: It’s called weaponized Keynesianism. It is the view that the government does not create jobs when it funds the building of bridges or important research or retrains workers, but when it builds airplanes that are never going to be used in combat, that is of course economic salvation.
