Tea Party Reaction to Frank

The Bilerico Project reported that when Barney Frank announced his retirement from Congress earlier this week (see below), the Tennessee Tea Party offered this tweet:

For some people, tweeting is identical to writing on the bathroom wall.  Without the body contortions.

In response to this Tea Party group calling a Congressman a "perverted sodomite piece of shit," Tea Party Nation President Judson Phillips declared, "This statement does nothing to advance the goals of the Tea Party movement and goes a long way towards offending people we need to be involved. Barney Frank is the worst congressman in the last century, but dumb comments like that tweet do not help our cause."

These Tea Party folks react to Frank with obscenity and hyperbole.  He makes them plain crazy.  Yet another reason to miss him.
