Barney Frank’s desperation: It’s come to this

In a last-minute move of desperation, Barney Frank called in former governor and presidential-nominee, Michael Dukakis, to help him rally support…amongst his base in the liberal town of Brookline (well, maybe not so liberal anymore). Finding a Barney Frank event these days is harder to do than one might think. Despite the fact that Frank is truly fighting the reelection campaign of his life to republican challenger Sean Bielat, he’s staying peculiarly quiet and randomly popping up at small events amongst democrats. Ever since we organize a counter-rally to protest former President Bill Clinton’s visit to stump for Frank, Barney has avoided publicly announcing his campaign events, choosing to instead attend events with other (more popular?) candidates.
