Representative Joe Walsh of Illinois is taking some heat today. It couldn’t happen to a nicer asswipe. Joe is locked in a tight race with Democratic candidate Tammy Duckworth. And man, is he piss-in-your-Tea-Party-Fruit-of-the-Looms terrified of her. Why?
Because Duckworth is a solid candidate and an intelligent woman. She’s also appealing to the eye. Better than that: she’s like visual catnip to the wingnut Republicans who would support Walsh. As they love the mere appearance of things, they can’t resist this:
A double amputee veteran. This makes Joe furious. This makes Joe lose his mind.
“What else has she done? Female, wounded veteran … ehhh,” he continued. “She is nothing more than a handpicked Washington bureaucrat.”
There she rolls, the typical legless bureaucrat. Well done, Joe. Over the weekend, he really unloaded on this Duckworth person. This military jerk. This self-serving ass:
“Understand something about John McCain. His political advisers, day after day, had to take him and almost throw him against a wall and hit him against the head and say, “Senator, you have to let people know you served! You have to talk about what you did!” He didn’t want to do it, wouldn’t do it. Day after day they had to convince him. Finally, he talked a little bit about it, but it was very uncomfortable for him. That’s what’s so noble about our heroes. Now I’m running against a woman who, my God, that’s all she talks about. Our true heroes, it’s the last thing in the world they talk about.”
Fake hero. Two-armed drama queen. Surgery suite starlet. How many times have you been to rehab there, Britney? Once for a looong time. Yeah, okay. Fuck these Hollywood types, I am sick of them.
First, he falsely and maliciously claims that Tammy Duckworth, a veteran who lost her legs in Iraq didn’t have much of a record of service. Now, he denigrates that same American hero for talking about how her experience shaped her worldview and strengthened her resolve to serve even more – a conversation that isn’t just legitimate to have, but crucial as America charts its course domestically and internationally. This is a new low for this deadbeat dad.
OH Christ almighty, it’s Votevets.org. You wanna piece of Joe, huh? Well, somebody had to do something about all the spending, okay? Joe was willing to sacrifice his children for his politics. Also for a nicer car, with some sweet power windows and keyless remote. And that’s why he’s the real deal, khaki losers.
We are past the point of calling on Joe Walsh to apologize. He should step aside and stop embarrassing his district and America.
Blah blah Army divas. But to Joe’s point: You never see John McCain campaigning on his military service. Or on his sacrifice. Huh? Well?
“. . listen, pal, I spent 22 years in the Navy. My father was in the Navy. My grandfather was in the Navy. We in the military service tend to move a lot. We have to live in all parts of the country, all parts of the world. I wish I could have had the luxury, like you, of growing up and living and spending my entire life in a nice place like the First District of Arizona, but I was doing other things. As a matter of fact, when I think about it now, the place I lived longest in my life was Hanoi.”
