IT’S OKAY, HE’S NOT A REPUBLICAN: Barney Frank Present During Pot Bust. “Congressman Barney Frank was present during a marijuana arrest at James Ready’s home in Ogunquit, Maine. Ready is well-known for his relationship with Congressman Frank.” Now if this were Sarah Palin’s ex-stepcousin-in-law it would be real news . . .

I’m finding this kinda hard to believe, though:

Congressman Frank tells FOX25 that he was surprised and disappointed with what police found. He also tells us that he wouldn’t recognize a marijuana plant if he saw one because he is, “not a great outdoorsman,” and ,”wouldn’t recognize most plants.”

I thought only Republicans were supposed to be that stodgy and out-of-it. Anyway, Moe Lane offers him some help to avoid future unpleasantness.

UPDATE: A reader emails:

“Surprised and disappointed”? Frank has gone off-script.

“Shocked, shocked …!” is supposed to be the preferred adjective of Corrupt Public Officialdom.

I could see Claude Rains as Barney Frank, actually.
