Only Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) could make a fundraising letter both caustic and entertaining.

Last month, as you'll remember, Frank lit into a town hall protester, comparing her to a piece of furniture.

"Ma'am, trying to have a conversation with you would be like trying to argue with a dining room table," he quipped. (VIDEO BELOW).

Now Frank is reviving that barb to raise money for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).

"I gave my response to these ridiculous [protest] tactics at a public meeting in August," Frank wrote, "and I have since thought that I might have been too harsh--on dining room tables."

Ouch.
