bf.jpg[VIDEO LINK BELOW] Discussing the regulation of executive pay with CNBC’s Mark Haines today, Rep. Barney Frank, the testy liberal Dem from Massachusetts, was affronted when Haines tried to get in a word edgewise.

“Excuse me, but please stop interrupting me. Do you want to lose me!? Do you want to lose me!? I’m trying to respond to your misrepresentation. I apologize but this interview is over. I get three different questions, different angles. I try to respond but you want to interrupt me, you don’t like what I’m saying – you can find someone else to interview.”

After Barney announced that the interview was over, he ripped off his earpiece. Unruffled, Haines got off a good last line: “Fine, goodbye sir. We’ll manage without you.”
