No surrender, no retreat

If Barney Frank thought his biting but accurate comment about the Herald would be the last word, he forgot Mark Twain's admonition to "never pick a fight with someone who buys in by the barrel."

Frank took the regulator off his tongue in full view of the cameras Tuesday night in lashing out at the newspaper that practically invented Sean Bielat. You saw it coming, but just like a car crash, you couldn't turn away.

"One of the things we can acknowledge tonight," Frank said in his victory speech, "is that Massachusetts has reaffirmed the complete political irrelevance of the Boston Herald."

Naturally the Herald was back at it today, not content with yesterday's slam by Margery Eagan, an admitted resident of "the capital of Moonbat-stan." This time we are treated with a front page Eagan sulk.

"After 30 years, Barney Frank finally lost my vote. On election night, he lost my respect as well."

I somehow doubt the flowers and chocolate of apology are in the mail. But the Herald is probably buying a few extra barrels of ink so they too can speak "frankly."

It looks like the cover has been ripped off Joe Sciacca's good guy, editorship. He's as bad as the rest of the Rupert Murdock troops.
