Congressman Frank's net worth is almost $2-million dollars and the man quibbles over a dollar? It appears Franken had the brazen effrontery to cause a scene over not receiving a $1 senior discount while boarding the ferry on his way to "Fire Island's popular gay haunt, The Pines."He didn't have the required senior card.
A witness claimed "Frank made such a drama over the senior rate" the stranger "contemplated offering him the dollar to cool down the situation."A very charitable impulse under the circumstances. As we know with liberals they think other people should always pay, and the rules they stuff down our throats are for everyone else--and don't solve the problem.
Is Barney too big to fail? Sadly, no. I'm sure his district will send him back to represent them in Congress no matter what he does. Meanwhile his top aide is going to tax-evading Treasury Sec. Tim Geithner's office to do PR.

When questioned, our representatives — reminiscent of the old French court at Versailles — act like they live in a rarified, untouchable universe.
