Politico's Patrick O'Connor reports that Democratic House financial services committee chairman Barney Frank slammed John McCain for engaging in the bailout negotiations:

"McCain is Andy Kaufman in his Mighty Mouse costume - 'Here I Come to Save the Day,'" Frank said as he left a Thursday morning caucus meeting with House Democrats, saying the Republican presidential candidate's decision to enter the mix "is not helpful."

"He hasn't been involved," Frank said. "He doesn't know anything about it."
