Barney Calls Out a Nitwit

Rep. Allen West, a Florida Republican, told constituents at a town hall event this week that as many as 80 members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus are members of the Communist Party. 

Rep. Barney Frank, the openly gay Massachusetts Democrat, responded this way to The Huffington Post:  "Not even Joe McCarthy would have said anything so stupid and dissociated from reality."

Frank is retiring this year.  Is there some way we can refuse to let him?
