Signorile Vs. Barney Frank

Surf over to Michelangelo Signorile's site and listen to him tangle with Rep. Barney Frank over the way gay activists have reacted to the Obama administration on LGBT rights. Things get quite heated. Signorile:
Barney became very unhappy with me and pretty heated when I played Howard Dean's comments on the DOMA brief, trying to stop me and saying he didn't come on for me to "play records." He defended the brief, defended the President on LGBT rights, defended Democrats in the House (though he said we need to take on Democrats in the Senate) and defended the DNC fundraiser. Barney and I have known each other for many years, agree on many things, disagree on others, and often when he comes on the show it can be a spirited discussion. This time I'd say he was a more angry about issues, particularly with how some of us who have criticized the Democrats and the White House.
