The Wit Hits the Fan's favorite Barney Frank moments

The airwaves are again aflutter with the graceful and soothing tone of a Barney Frank hissyfit as he is asked exactly what responsibility, if any, he has for the financial crisis. As is his usual mode of operation, he tries to evade the question by demeaning the questioner and accusing him of being part of some sort of right-wing conspiracy.

This brings to mind some of our favorite moments from the man who 60 Minutes named "the smartest man in Congress."

There are "plenty of rich people that we can tax"

"Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac are not in a crisis."

Barney Frank calls Supreme Court Justice a "homophobe"

Barney Frank rules with an iron gavel

And, Barney Frank's famous hissyfit with Bill O'Reilly
