The question is obviously prompted by Bill O'Reilly's news commentary show where O'Reilly is offering bumper stickers to his listening audience that say, "The Factor says "Tell the Truth... or Get the Barney". O'Reilly of course is of Irish herritage. According to "onlineslangdictionary.com", in the United Kingdom the word "barney" is slang for a heated discussion or argument - especially a loud or violent argument. That definition fits the on-air "discussion" that O'Reilly had with Congressman Barney Frank, the chairman of the House Finanical Services Committee, on October 3, 2008. (Google "Bill O'Reilly" "Barney Frank".) So the bumper sticker is a double entendre.
