Barney Frank: Tea Partiers have tied me to the railroad tracks!

This has to be one of the more colorful fundraising emails of the cycle, from Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass.:

Today, the “Tea Party Express” announced that not only has it made my one of their top targets in the entire nation, they are formally endorsing my opponent, Sean Bielat, a supposed moderate.

The Tea Party Express also announced a that it will make a special stop in Massachusetts just before the election in order to defeat me.

The Tea Party Express thinks that it has me tied to the tracks. The right-wing is readying its engines. Fox News and talk radio are ready to call the play-by-play.

Let’s not get railroaded by the extreme right. Please help me fight back so we can preserve the ideals that make our country great.

Did anyone else think of Snidely Whiplash?
