Barney Frank Will Not Seek Reelection

You won't have Barney Frank to kick around anymore. The voluble, irascible congressman and insult comic will reportedly announce today that he won't run for Congress in 2012. Maybe there's a scandal coming! Maybe his district is getting chewed up in Massachusetts' redistricting process. Maybe he's just sick of this shit. Either way, we're losing one of the greats.
