Did Rep. Barney Frank fart on live TV?

Live television has its drawbacks. A big one is that you never know when an accident might happen.

Exhibit “A”: Monday night’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” on MSNBC.

While talking to Maddow’s audience about jobs and unemployment, Rep. Barney Frank, the Massachusetts Democrat, might have accidentally let one rip, so to speak. (h/t Bob’s Blitz)

You be the judge:

Rachel, I think we have to figure out what we do from here and you’re right, we’ve got to get some jobs

[... noise …]

And we have to deal with the debt and there’s one way to do it …

Frank could not be reached for comment.

    He even raised up on his left hip to do it.
    Rachel Madcow’s biggest audience ever – just for the “Barney clip.”
