money: Barney Frank comedic gold

Representative Barney Frank on the 12 Republicans who switched their votes, torpedoed the bailout bill, then claimed it was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's mean speech that made them do it:

“Because somebody hurt their feelings, they decided to punish the country,” he said.
“I'll make an offer,” he added. “Give me those 12 people's names and I will go talk uncharacteristically nicely to them [laughter] and tell them what wonderful people they are and maybe they'll now think about the country.”
