Barney Gets All Warm and Fuzzy

Barney Frank - as always, lighthearted and oozing joy - expresses his pleasure over having dodged the bullet of 2010.

Leaders of conservative campaign committees will find a silver lining in the victory of Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., Tuesday: They have retained a powerful fundraising tool.

Frank won by a comfortable 11 points over a Tea Party-backed challenger, Sean Bielat. There was a flurry of last-minute media coverage of the race, and Frank even loaned his campaign $200,000 as he fended off the most credible challenge he's faced in decades.

Two funniest comments - when Barney said this was a victory over vitriol, and "sometimes you have to bite your tongue."
