So Barney Frank finally found someone he could take in a debate — check it out, check it outers:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED TOWN HALL ATTENDEE: Why do you continue to support a Nazi-policy, as Obama has expressly supported this policy? Why are you supporting it…

(CROSSTALK)

REP. BARNEY FRANK, D-MASS.: When you ask me that question, I am going to revert to my ethnic heritage and answer your question with a question: On what planet do you spend most of your time?

(APPLAUSE)

My answer to you is, as I've said before, it is a tribute to the First Amendment that this kind of vile, contemptible nonsense is so freely propagated.

(APPLAUSE)

Ma’am, trying to have a conversation with you would be like trying to argue with a dining room table. I have no interest in doing it.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

See, the congressman was speaking at a town committee meeting at Dartmouth, Massachusetts, when that crazy — but oddly cute lady — approached the microphone with a kooky rant, linking Obama's health care plan to the Nazis.

This was a lay-up for Frank, for the chick was a LaRouche follower, a member of a group of far-left conspiracy chuckleheads who, like cockroaches, never go away despite the bug spray. These poor folks need prescriptions, not publicity. But Frank knew this was his lucky day: He could speak truth to power, even if the power might be a tad sad and off her rocker.

Now, I am not saying this woman is a plant — I'll leave that to Barbara Boxer. But the provocation was. Barney knew where this was going all along and it was a chance for him to shine with a well-rehearsed line.

So while the media paints this as brave Barney standing up to white, racist crazies, to me he's Lebron James slam-dunking over Steven Hawking.

How funny that just weeks earlier, health care protesters were seen as racist. Now, you're all just crazy.

I guess that's progress.
