PAT: Barney Frank, it is now coming out Barney Frank was there when his partner was arrested for possession of pot. I guess they were growing, not necessarily they. It was the partner who was arrested. Barney Frank was standing on the front porch when police arrived and his partner was arrested. But he didn't, he didn't know it was pot because ‑‑ do we have that audio, Sarah? Let's play that. Because there was ‑‑ they were discussing this I believe on CNN with Wolf Blitzer yesterday, and apparently Barney had no idea what was going on. Do you have that sound?
VOICE: Favorite from our favorite quotation category. Here we go. Congressman Barney Frank says he would not be able to recognize a marijuana plant because, quote, he is not a great outdoorsman. So you ask why would a congressman bring that up? Well, it turns out the Massachusetts Democrat was on hand when his partner was arrested for pot possession back in 2007. "The Boston Globe" reports Frank was on the front porch of James Ready's home in Maine when police found marijuana plants in the backyard. Now, Frank says he did not see the plants and he wouldn't know what they were anyway. Who knew that only outdoorsy types know a marijuana plant when they see it. So would you know a marijuana plant when you saw one?
VOICE: I'm not sure I would, though. If I can smell it, I think I know what it would smell like but I'm not sure.
VOICE: How would you know?
VOICE: Let's check in with Lou Dobbs. He's got a lot coming up on this story at the top of the hour. You could smell a marijuana, Lou, but you probably wouldn't recognize a plant. Am I right or wrong?
DOBBS: Well, you are dead wrong. I would recognize it rather readily. I think that we've got to give Barney Frank great credit for ‑‑ I love the fact that he said he's not an outdoorsman. I mean, that's funny as it can be. Thanks a lot. By the way, you and Jessica bowed out of that just in time.
PAT: Jeez, I wouldn't know a marijuana plant. Marijuana? I thought that was just something I needed to put some roundup on. I thought that was some sort of weed. Wait, not a weed, no. That's not what I meant. I meant I thought that was a daisy or a daffodil or some Dieffenbachia or something. That's all I thought that was. I didn't know it. I don't even go out ‑‑ I've never been outside. I don't even know what outside is. I live only indoors. I'm an indoorsman. What a lame and pathetic excuse, I wouldn't know what it looked like because I'm not a great outdoorsman. If this was Glenn Beck and he was standing on, you know ‑‑ I mean, we're not partners. We're just, we're friends. But if he was standing on my front porch when I was arrested for pot possession, do you think that would be on the front page of every newspaper in America? I think so. I think the bloggers might have something to say about it. I think MSNBC might have "Worst person in the world" night after night after night. I think they might have something to say about that. But for Barney Frank I guess it's not a problem. He didn't know anything about it when his partner ‑‑ is this the same guy who was running the bordello out of Barney's house, out of his apartment? Or is this a different guy? I mean, what is it when Barney Frank and his felonious partners? I don't care who his partner is, but he's got bad taste in partners, it seems. You only date criminals? Is that what the deal is? What is going on with Barney Frank and his partner crime spree? "He was running a bordello out of my house? I had no idea. I never go to my house. I'm not a great indoorsman. I didn't know he was running a bordello out of my house. I'm not a great indoorsman. What do I know about that." Now it's pot. "I didn't he had pot. I'm not an outdoorsman. I don't know anything about outdoors. I've never been outdoors." I mean, come on. What does it take to launch at least an investigation into this guy and his dealings and his life? What does it take for the people of Massachusetts to vote him out of office? What do you need? You have to engrave his initials into the pot plants? "This is grown by Barney Frank. This is pot and then this is the Barney Frank line of snack. This is the Barney Frank line of cocaine. Jeez, I ‑‑ here's my initials on it, BF. Oh, that's not mine. I don't even know who did that. That must be Bill Fredericksonbergsteinsen." I don't know. I don't know what it takes. Confusing to me. We'll have more on that as well.
