Midterm Election Has Massachusetts Doing The Barney Shuffle

Barney Frank is Not Happy

With the purchase of a cheap suit and tie from J.C. Penny’s,  a green painted mask, and a twitter message calling for a local dancer who “can do contemporary moves and 1970s disco moves,” the campaign of Massachusetts congressional  candidate Sean Bielat took an obnoxious, irresponsible career politician and turned him into a video sensation that is sure to try drive a point home to voters. 

In what is undoubtedly one of the most amusing, yet truthful ads of the 2010 midterm election, Republican Sean Bielat and his team have taken the words of  Barney “Big Fannie & Freddie Mac”  Frank, and put them to music in a diddy called” The Barney Funk”   Then after a few applicants demonstrated their moves, the Bielat team, picked one agile dancer to don a suit, tie, and green painted mask as they danced to a lyrical versions of some of Rep. Frank’s most memorable to phrases. 

The result was the “Barney Shuffle” and driving home of the message that despite more than thirty years in offfice and his role in the congressional regulating scandal that was responsible for the housing market collapse which ushered in a worldwide economic crisis, Barney Frank simply dances around the issues, never addressing the real problems or his hand in adding to those problems.

According to the Bielat campaign:

” Nobody dances around the issues quite like Barney Frank.

Frank has tap danced around his support for bank bailouts, a failed stimulus, and job-killing tax increases. He has strutted back and forth on the issue of homeownership, despite a clear record of promoting it for unqualified buyers which lead to the housing collapse.  
 
Frank has twisted the facts about giving his friend’s bank a $200 million taxpayer-funded bailout, and waltzed away from his vote to nationalize healthcare.  Most recently, he attempted to side-step a controversy surrounding a luxurious Virgin Islands vacation with a billionaire hedge fund manager.
 
It’s time to end the Washington Hustle. On November 2, the show’s over.”
 
 A  picture may certainly be worth a thousand words but this video is priceless and certainly worth your time.  So sit back, relax and allow and as Election Day approaches, allow the visions of Barney to dance in your head  just like children children with visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads as the holidays approach.
