Leg Blames Failure of Bailout Bill on Barney Frank’s Inability to Tie a Proper Necktie

Nice cravat.

Nice cravat.

While many observers attributed the stunning failure of the House measure designed to shore up tottering credit markets on Nancy Pelosi’s partisan primal scream immediately before the vote–Chris Matthews Leg floated an alternative theory.

The sensitive appendage believes it has traced the waves of negative energy that permeated the House chambers today to their source–a point about four inches south of one the Massachusetts congressman’s chins. “What the deuce is going on with that tie?” the Leg asked with a mixture of fear and revulsion. “Is that a single Windsor . . . a four-in-hand . . . I can’t tell, but it’s just wrong.”

The Leg wondered out loud if there might be less tension between the parties on this issue if there wasn’t so much tension on Frank’s top collar button.


  1. Maybe Barney’s Korean cabana boy ties Barney’s tie. So, shouldn’t the failure of the bill be blamed on an obviously illegal immigrant? Ooo, I mean “undocumented worker.” My bad, Leg.

  2. Again, as someone from the Peoples Republic of Massachusetts, I apologize for Barney, Ted, John, Gov. Patrick and the whole lot of them. I assure you, not a one of them has ever received one of my votes!


  3. Leg, good observation; rumor has it that the tie has cut off blood supply to his brain thus making him a slave to ACORN and any other socialist-leaning group that sends money his way. Truth or lie?

    Scottoncc, the People’s Republic of MA had a chance to rectify the situation by putting Kelly over the top, but alas MA voters again came up short. What gives with you guys?

  4. Leave it to Nancy Pelosi to try and put a shine on the old sneaker that is the Commonwealth’s Barney Frank. See “The Maestro” below…
