That's what I thought when I heard Barney Frank giving this speech yesterday.

I was working with C-SPAN on in the background and heard this great, free-market speech coming from the TV, and I looked over to find Barney Frank, of all people, giving it.


Crazy, but it's a great speech. A reality check for all the conservatives in Congress who preach free-market economics except for when it comes to agriculture. My favorite part:

So I have been forced to conclude that in all of those great free market texts by Ludwig von Mises, Friedrich Hayek and all the others that there is a footnote that says, by the way, none of this applies to agriculture. Now, it may be written in high German, and that may be why I have not been able to discern it, but there is no greater contrast in America today than between the free enterprise rhetoric of so many conservatives and the statist, subsidized, inflationary, protectionist, anti-consumer agricultural policies, and this is one of them.

Andy also had running commentary on the debate on the Flake amendments to the ag bill, yesterday. Just scroll down the page.

And, Red State has results for three of Flake's amendments, all of which failed.

Thanks so much for what you do, Rep. Flake. We see it.

On a side note, I love the Internet. Barney Frank's "fabolous" speech reminded me I really used to like that "Young'n" song by Fabolous a couple years ago. Hadn't heard it in forever. Ninety-nine cents later, it's playing on my iTunes.
