Barney Frank lays parlimentary smackdown

Check out this C-Span clip. It's Barney Frank presiding over some procedure related to the stem-cell bill. He teaches us that "parlimentary inquiries" are not appropriate places to discuss the substance of the bill, and that "points of order" can't be questions. And he smacks the gavel a lot. It's a bit baffling, but it's clear he's not letting Republicans take control of things.
