"Lars Larson encourages people to vote for ‘Barney Fag.’"

Last Friday night, right-wing radio host Lars Larson played a spoof “Barney Frank for President” advertisement that ended by referring to Rep. Frank (D-MA), who is gay, with a derogatory term. “Now remember, this Erection Day — Election Day, vote for Barney Frank for President. I’m Barney Fag — uh, Frank and I approve this massage — message,” said the fake ad. Listen here:

This isn’t the first time a conservative has attacked Frank in such a way. In 1995, then-House Majority Leader Dick Armey referred to Frank as “Barney Fag” during a radio interview.
