GLENN: So Barney Frank has come out and he's got some amazing new things to say. He is going to pretty much destroy the free market system. He is acting as the ultimate consumer. The invisible hand is now the hand of Barney Frank. Weil give you that coming up in a little while. Also there is a brand‑new poll out on Doug Hoffman. You know, he's the, "Don't throw your vote away on that guy" guy. He is ‑‑ this is fascinating to me. There is a new poll now finding that Hoffman is leading both the Republican and the Democrat. He leads 31 Owens the Democrat with 27 and Scozzafava ‑‑
PAT: Yeah, it's DeDe Scozzafava.

PAT: It's a blow to Newt Gingrich if he does.
GLENN: It's a blow to everybody.
GLENN: It's a blow to everybody. It should be a real eye‑opener if he wins, to the Republicans. The Republicans still won't get it. The Republicans are too beholden to special interests. They are too beholden to big business. Look, big business, you know, I was thinking about this today. How do you actually win an election without the big businesses, without the giant ‑‑ how do you win against Barack Obama with all of that union money and everything? If you allow him to get this strong over the next three years, how do you possibly raise enough money to win?
