Please Let It Be True

I think everyone on the right wants Barney Frank to lose, but none of us believe it will happen, which is a shame, because his challenger is a 35 year-old Marine Corps officer who used to run a $100 million robotics program.   The race is close enough that Frank's boyfriend is out heckling the challenger.  However, none of us think it will actually happen, even if the challenger, Sean Bielat, released internal polls showing he is within the margin of error.

Internal polls are inherently flawed, so it's worth taking it with a grain of salt.  But Allapundit comes up with a good analogy on why conservatives really want to believe the King of Fannie and Freddie is vulnerable...

An internal poll showing one of the architects of the subprime meltdown in mortal peril of losing is like hearing from a friend of a friend of a friend that the cutest girl in school digs you. Deep down you don’t really believe it, but you want to believe it so badly that you’re ready to tell everyone.
Hey, once in awhile, the friends were telling the truth, weren't they? Well, not my friends, but maybe one of you had a friend who was. In any case, let's hope the wave is big enough next week that it washes Barney Frank into retirement.
