Rep. Barney Frank, the only openly “left-handed” member of the house and Chairman of the Financial Services Committee, is kind of a dick.

According to Capitol Briefing, the famously rude congressman ruptured a tendon while using the curling machine at a gym (is that what the kids call it these days?) necessitating that he wear his arm in a sling.

Anyway, tired of having fellow Democrats ask him what happened, the congressman decided to send a dear colleague letter out to all house Democrats telling them what happened, and to shut up about it. See the letter below.

Dear Colleague:

I appreciate the concern expressed by many about why my arm is in a sling. In order to avoid having to repeat the same conversation, I am sending out this Dear Colleague.

I ruptured a tendon in my left arm using a curling machine in a gym, and I had it surgically repaired yesterday at Bethesda Naval Hospital. I’ll be using the sling for a week or two, but I feel fine.

Thanks for not asking.
