View Full Version : Barney Frank had his neck cut off?

Looked like it on TRMS. Frank was apparently just at the House gym or something, had a tee-shirt on, and it showed the neckline.

He appeared to have a gaping scar/wound kind of thing going on at the base of his neck. Was that from the head transplant, or what caused it? Just folds of flesh from extra weight?

Do you have a pic? I mean there are tons of jokes that could be made here.

No. I'd have to get a screen capture or something. Although, TRMS has replays over its website, so once it's a day or two old, that whole segment will be over there to see his neck.

It's very low, near the base, so it just might be a natural neck fold/fat fold thing going on. But it looked like it was a still-healing wound site, the entire base of his neck in front and to the sides that was visible from a front-on camera position.

From last night's show. (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26315908/ns/msnbc_tv-rachel_maddow_show/#45731491)

The segment is called John Boehner is still bad at his job.

Fast forward or click forward to about 4:30 in the segment.

The only thing I found looking around was that Barney Frank lost a lot of weight in his last winning election campaign (election held early November '10). Maybe there was a procedure to tighten up the resulting neck sag? (In his normal work clothes, this would be well under his neck-tied-collar.

Probably from some sort of sex act gone wrong.

"Barney, 'give me head!' is just an expression!!! But boy, does that thing zip all the way off?"

Yeah, that looks gross. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif Not sure if that was plastic surgery though, only because everything else looks so bad.

Maybe he had a body transplant! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif

The topic of the clip was interesting though. If the TP faction votes against the GOP or just abstains, Boehner has no control any more. He needs them.
Boehner knows that if it comes to a vote, this bill would pass because only 20% of Republicans need to vote with the Dems to get it passed. That's why we have all the shenanigans.

Basically what you have now is a small destructive minority of the GOP in control of the party.

Barney Frank always got high marks for being smart, and that was before anyone really knew he'd had his head sewed onto his neck after some bizarre accident that nearly severed it off. (Which still hasn't been reported-- you read it here first! Old fashioned journalism-- watched a tv interview!!!!)

We have to admit Frank is doubly smart, now that we know that.

As for Boehner being bad at his job, maybe not, given what he has to work with, and no particular leverage against these renegades. Would he have a viable threat, and if so, what would it entail? No subcommittee chairmanship for YOU!?!?!
