Barney Frank's Nipples Speak Louder Than Words

Filed under: Lindsay LohanPolitik

Barney Frank has joined the infamous club of celebrity nip slips!

Yes, this is no Lindsay Lohan bikini wardrobe malfunction, but may very well be the 71-year-old male equivalent.

The heater must have been broken on Monday while the Massachusetts congressman addressed the House of Representatives because his nips looked like they were about to rip out of his blue sweater!

He was talking about something, but all we heard was, "Nipple! Nipple! Nipple!" Guess the old saying is true. Actions Nipples really do speak louder than words!

Check out the short video above to see Barney's chest steal the show!

Kathy Griffin Stirs Some Shiz With Massachusetts Politicians!

Oh, look! There Kathy Griffin goes again, getting people's panties all in a knot!

If you caught last week's episode of My Life On The D-List, you know that the comedienne took a dig at Massachusetts senator Scott Brown's two daughters! Watch the HIGHlarity above!

Brown himself has already claimed that Griffin and Bravo "should be ashamed of themselves," but now openly-gay Massachusetts representative Barney Frank - who has actually made an appearance on the reality show - is taking a stand, and isn't pleased either!

He says:

“Having agreed to go on your show, I was particularly disappointed in the terrible comment you made about Sen. Scott Brown’s daughters. I think it’s possible to have fun, and even to poke fun at people in my business, without this kind of completely unfair attack.

And while I don’t usually feel compelled to comment on what various entertainers so, since you did include me in that show I wanted to make it very clear that I thought what you did was wholly unfair and inappropriate. It’s the kind of thing that makes it less likely that I or others can cooperate with you in the future.”

Wow, we think that's a little harsh for such a relatively harmless dig that was immediately acknowledged to be false!

And don't people realize that responding to her only means you're going to be in her next stand-up set?!

Griffin responded this morning via Twitter:

haha,Scott Brown is the Spencer Pratt of the US Senate.THIS is a great time 2 come c me live. OF COURSE I'm lovin all the publicity LOVIN IT

Ha! Pretty astute, gurl! He's pretty awful!

We cannot WAIT to hear her set about HIM now!

You only fueled her fire, boys! Very STOOPID!

Thoughts??

Lt. Dan Choi Chains Himself To White House Fence In Protest Of DADT!!

76191310-1f4dc7a2b93d287458.jpg

What a hero!

During the Human Rights Campaign march this morning in Washington, DC, Lt. Dan Choi, who famously has been under fire from the US Army for serving his country out of the closet, announced that he was chaining himself to the White House to protest the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy!!

Choi, who appeared on stage while comedienne Kathy Griffin was there supporting the LGBT community, read this statement before heading to the White House:

“Hello. My name is Lt. Dan Choi. I am being discharged from the US Army because I am gay and dared to say it out loud.

Today, I am here on a mission with Capt. Jim Pietrangelo, and we are asking you all to join us. We’re calling you to action because we are at a turning point — a moment in time where talk is no longer enough, and action is required.

Equality is not going to happen by itself.

You have been told that the President has a plan. But Congressman Barney Frank confirmed to us this week that the President still is not fully committed to repealing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell this year.

And if we don’t seize this moment it may not happen for a very long time.

Some may tell you that I am one of the lucky ones. I have been welcomed back by my unit with open arms. And it would be easy for me to stay quiet and hope that change will happen.

But what I was taught at West Point and learned in war is — hope is not a strategy. As officers, James and I both find it a dereliction of our moral duty to remain silent while thousands of our brothers and sister are not allowed to serve openly and honestly.

Capt. Pietrangelo was honorably discharged under Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell in 2004 and I will be subject to the same shortly. As officers we are here today fighting for those in the ranks, and we need our Commander in Chief to do the same.

Our fight is not here at Freedom Plaza, it is at the White House. We are walking to the White House right now to send the President a message. So…take out your cell phones and your cameras. Document this moment. Join us as together — we make history.”

He then proceeded to march to the White House, and as we write this, is still chained to the fence with a crowd of supporters!!

As of now, only one woman, Robin McGehee, has been arrested for helping Capt. Pietrangelo handcuff himself to the fence on the grounds for 'disorderly conduct.'

Stand strong!! We are 100% behind you!!

EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!
