Video: The sadly obligatory “Barney Frank lettin’ it all hang out” clip

posted at 8:45 pm on December 19, 2011 by Allahpundit

Via Mediaite. I don’t want to blog it, I have to blog it. If only as catharsis: Having now seen this, the only thing that can ease my suffering is making you suffer with me.

It might not have been so bad if not for the nipples. The terrible, terrible nipples. Worthy of a reprimand?

Dress Code: Members should dress appropriately which has traditionally been considered to include a coat and tie for male Members and appropriate attire for female Members. Members should not wear overcoats or hats on the Floor while the House is in session. There is no eating, drinking, or smoking is permitted. The use of personal electronic equipment, including cellular telephones and laptop computers, is banned on the Floor of the House (clause 5 of Rule XVII).

Serious question: Is this a prank? It’s his last term in Congress and he’s known for his sense of humor. Maybe he got up this morning, decided he wanted to do something he’d never done before, and settled on “no bra today.” Remember him fondly, my friends.

Zero respect for the seat of power he has. Zero respect for the people who fund it.

tom daschle concerned on December 19, 2011 at 8:48 PM

Wow..Checkot those manboobs..I wonder if they are real or fake.. :)

Dire Straits on December 19, 2011 at 8:49 PM

I wear a 34B so he must be a…96 XX.
Ewww.

annoyinglittletwerp on December 19, 2011 at 8:49 PM

I wonder if his nipple rings set off the scanner alarms?

Kini on December 19, 2011 at 8:50 PM

Dire Straits on December 19, 2011 at 8:50 PM

An earlier article said he was dressed this way because he’d had surgery on his thumb and was wearing a sling. It must be a pretty big thumb.

AubieJon on December 19, 2011 at 8:50 PM

Oh dear Lord – gross!

gophergirl on December 19, 2011 at 8:51 PM

Wasn’t there a headline post a few days ago about a new drug that can erase horrible memories….

And Wiener was forced to step down.

I finally get to post at HotAir and this is what I find! lol

rightConcept on December 19, 2011 at 8:52 PM

He’s poking us in the eyes–figuratively and literally. This person is disgusting.

SouthernGent on December 19, 2011 at 8:52 PM

Barney’s titties are bigger than half of America’s women. I’m sure his boyfriend enjoys that. Disgusting!

F_This on December 19, 2011 at 8:52 PM

Well, I’ve never seen that before.

JellyToast on December 19, 2011 at 8:52 PM

Is Barney a Tranny?

He looks like he’s taking hormones. Getting ready for the big operation?

Damn. Bea Arthur zombie.

Would’ve been funny but b*tchtits almost sent us into a second great depression.

I wonder how many guys in House/Senate have such impressive MOOBS?//:p

Ladysmith CulchaVulcha on December 19, 2011 at 8:54 PM

It appears he has a cast or something on his left hand/arm. Not sure if he’s left handed but that is neither here nor there. He may have had to wear his blouse as it were because it was the only thing he could get over that arm.

chickasaw42 on December 19, 2011 at 8:55 PM

I see they are conserving energy in the House by turning down the thermostat.

Electrongod on December 19, 2011 at 8:55 PM

After seeing the man boobs- Time to log off.

bazil9 on December 19, 2011 at 8:55 PM

First Wiener and now boobs?

chickasaw42 on December 19, 2011 at 8:56 PM

So he is a catcher

Any bets?… ;)

He looks like King Louie from “Jungle Book”.

Huh? Barney Frank? What is this pic-AAAHHH!!!! MY EYES!!! OH GOD, IT BURNS!!!!!

T-Rav on December 19, 2011 at 8:58 PM

Would Lorien umm—never mind.

arnold ziffel on December 19, 2011 at 8:58 PM

Is this evidence of why he is retiring? It is not due to problems with electability, but he wants to get a sex change and has started his estrogen doses?

astonerii on December 19, 2011 at 8:58 PM

Nice cans, Barney.

***Sucka Free by 2013***

Steelguitarczarina on December 19, 2011 at 8:58 PM

I am too sexy for my shirt too …

burrata on December 19, 2011 at 8:58 PM

Ouch! My eyes….

AllahP, why? Why? Why couldn’t you suffer alone? You just had to rope us in…

Now you all excuse me while I go look through some magazines…

Ah… much better…

TheRightMan on December 19, 2011 at 8:58 PM

I wear a 34B …

annoyinglittletwerp on December 19, 2011 at 8:49 PM

One of my top-ten favorite sizes, oh my. ;-)

TXUS on December 19, 2011 at 8:58 PM

The bra for men on Seinfeld
Kramer called it The Bro
Costanza dubbed it The Manssiere. :D

Ladysmith CulchaVulcha on December 19, 2011 at 8:58 PM

Thanks Allah.

Now excuse me while I go jab knitting needles into my eyes.

Bruno Strozek on December 19, 2011 at 8:59 PM

Stop the insanity!!

JohnGalt23 on December 19, 2011 at 8:59 PM

I think this photo of Barney answers the question

“Who gets to be the girl?”

ncjetsfan on December 19, 2011 at 8:59 PM

Serious question: Is this a prank?

He has a cast on his left arm, no?

SlaveDog on December 19, 2011 at 8:59 PM

ahahahaha that is HILARIOUS!!!!! oh my gosh, wow… okay first of all, it looks like he has four arms. second, he could have worn a shirt that was less tight but he had to wear that tight one… third, did i mention that this is hilarious? and finally, not just the manboobs but THE NIPPLES!!!!!!! ARRRGGGHHH *dies*

Sachiko on December 19, 2011 at 8:59 PM

niptacular!

OH GEE THANKS!!!!
I JUST VOMITED ON MY MONITOR…and I think my ‘outie’ just went in!

KOOLAID2 on December 19, 2011 at 9:00 PM

It’s like that movie “The Ring,” Allah. You watched the tape, so you know you’re dead in seven days. The only thing that might, just might, save you is if you make someone else watch the tape. Thanks a lot. Now I have to e-mail this link to a friend just to save myself.

Rational Thought on December 19, 2011 at 9:00 PM

Damn! There goes tonight’s peaceful sleep…

Dire Straits on December 19, 2011 at 9:00 PM

How can I un-see that?

V7_Sport on December 19, 2011 at 9:00 PM

I wonder, when a congressman retires, does the medical benefits cover sex changes?

astonerii on December 19, 2011 at 9:00 PM

His destruction of the US economy via Fanny & Freddie pales in comparison to the ten seconds I watched the clip and will never get back.

Buck Turgidson on December 19, 2011 at 9:01 PM

Serious question: Is this a prank?

He has a cast on his left arm, no?

SlaveDog on December 19, 2011 at 8:59 PM

Not that that excuses the moobs.

SlaveDog on December 19, 2011 at 9:01 PM

Wow..Checkot those manboobs..I wonder if they are real or fake.. :)

Dire Straits on December 19, 2011 at 8:49 PM

Either way, he definitely needs a surgical lift. Yuck.

Peppa Pig on December 19, 2011 at 9:01 PM

Thats the same Night-Shirt,that Barney lounges in,in his basement
(sarc).

canopfor on December 19, 2011 at 9:01 PM

What next, Barney goes commando?

Weebork on December 19, 2011 at 9:01 PM

I’m sure he will be on Dancing with the stars, after his Congress gig is up,
partnering with Chaz Bono !!

burrata on December 19, 2011 at 9:02 PM

A boob sportin’ boobs.

they lie on December 19, 2011 at 9:02 PM

That did in my evening. If anyone needs me, I’ll be in the corner, huddled in a fetal position, rocking back and forth, and wailing, “Mooooobs. MOOOBBBBSSS”.

sarahconnor42 on December 19, 2011 at 9:02 PM

Bringing attention to the nipples was cruel.

Why did you have to do that?!

You owe me a WEEK of sleep.

Make it go AWAY!

Opposite Day on December 19, 2011 at 9:03 PM

He’d have better cleavage if he did the duct tape trick.

PopsRacer on December 19, 2011 at 9:03 PM

They are real
and
they are spectacular
;-)

burrata on December 19, 2011 at 9:03 PM

At least he took his nipple rings out.

Ufdaubet on December 19, 2011 at 9:04 PM

It could have been worse if had he worn something that bared the cleavage.

For all you MST3K fans out there, I think this clip is relevant:

OMG!
So basically a man who sleeps with Barney is actually sleeping with Betty?

Gross, gross, gross.

ORconservative on December 19, 2011 at 9:08 PM

Makes you wonder if he’s been getting hormone therapy, in preparation for becoming Bernice Frank?

Ward Cleaver on December 19, 2011 at 9:08 PM

Having now seen this, the only thing that can ease my suffering is making you suffer with me.

dude, what is seen can never be unseen. Please, *Oh Allah, sweet Allah* Please...demote this post such that my eyes can no longer bear witness on such…. well, such, horror.

ted c on December 19, 2011 at 9:08 PM

Is the microphone turning him on in some weird way? He always speaks…like his mouth is full.

FLconservative on December 19, 2011 at 9:09 PM

His Partner is Jim Ready. But I don’t know how Jim is Ready for all THAT!

Ladysmith CulchaVulcha on December 19, 2011 at 9:10 PM

Serious rackage on top of a serious wreck of a human being. How perfect is that?

TXUS on December 19, 2011 at 9:11 PM

Go away, Mr Frank.
And take both Clinton’s with you.
