Barney Frank's Greatest Hits: "The Gentleman Will Sus'thpend!"

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Barney Frank -- Elmer Fudd, Sylvester the Cat -- hard to tell the difference in the three, back in the news, ladies and gentlemen, all upset over the bonuses at AIG. To set this up, I want to go back to a Barney Frank greatest hit from January 11th, 2007, on the House floor. This is right after the Democrats had retaken the house for the first time since 1994. This is after the 2006 elections. Barney Frank is acting as Speaker. The Speaker never goes to the Speaker's chair. She always stays back in her office and twists arms and does things. They have rotating members who go up there and act as the President of the House that day. The Senate does the same thing. This is during the time when it was been discovered that Nancy Pelosi had an exemption to some piece of bill for the StarKist Tuna people exempting them from some latest piece of legislation that was going to hamper other businesses, and a Republican member of the House stood up, tried to make a point about Pelosi's StarKist giveaway by attempting to insert an exemption for Samoa into the stem cell bill, and Barney Frank did not want any part of it.

FRANK: Yes, the gentleman may state the inquiry.

McHENRY: So the chair is saying that I may not offer an amendment --

FRANK: (pounding gavel)

McHENRY: -- exempting --

FRANK: The gentleman will sus'thpend! (pounding gavel)

McHENRY: -- American Samoa from this legislation?

FRANK: (pounding gavel) The gentleman will sus'thpend!! The gentleman is making a speech and will sus'thpend! The chair is not saying anything.

McHENRY: If the chair will let me finish my question...

FRANK: (pounds gavel) The gentleman will sus'thpend!! The chair has answered the gentleman's question. The gentlemen will state the point of order.

McHENRY: How many times did our distinguished --

FRANK: No! No! (pounding gavel) The gentleman... (pounding gavel) The gentleman (pounding gavel) ''How many times...?'' could not conceivably be a point of order! The --

McHENRY: If the chair will not answer my question --

FRANK: The gentleman will not inter'wupt. (pounding gavel)

HOUSE: (laughter)

McHENRY: Is exempted --

FRANK: (pounding gavel)

McHENRY: -- from this legislation.

FRANK: (pounding gavel) The gentleman will not, eh, uh (coughing) -- While, the chair is presiding, will not make speeches in the guise of a parliament inquiry. Comments --

McHENRY: Yeah. These were --

FRANK: (pounding gavel) No, no! The gentlemen will sus'thpend!

McHENRY: Then the --

FRANK: (slamming gavel harder) The gentlemen from Texas -- !

McHENRY: Point of order!

FRANK: (screaming) The gentlemen from Texas will sus'thpend! (pounding gavel)

McHENRY: The distinguished speaker was out of order in the past!

FRANK: (banging gavel)

RUSH: Barney Frank gaveling down a Republican who just wants to ask him a question, ladies and gentlemen!

(playing of Banking Queen)

RUSH: January 11th, 2007, "The gentleman will sus'thpend!" We did not repeat one gavel. We did not repeat one thing Barney Frank said. He is the Banking Queen.

(continued playing of song)

RUSH: Barney Frank, the Banking Queen, exclusively on the EIB Network with Rush Limbaugh.
