Oh yeah, he’s at it again. At what again? Paying his rent? Or his child support? HAHA DON’T BE RIDICULOSE! No, deadbeat congressman Joe Walsh is once again sneering at his opponent, Tammy Duckworth, who lost both her legs flying a helicopter in Iraq and now works in Veterans Affairs.
Here’s what Walsh said last time: “She’s been the one working in Washington. She’s a bureaucrat. I’m a fighter. [...] I have so much respect for what she did in the fact that she sacrificed her body for this country,” said Walsh, simultaneously lowering his voice as he leaned forward before pausing for dramatic effect. “Ehhh. Now let’s move on.” But has Walsh taken his own impeccable advice? Maybe no!
At a town hall meeting, Walsh explained that a real hero, like John FIVE AND A HALF YEARS ALAN McCain, does not talk about his heroism. This is in opposition to fake heroes, like Duckworth. “Now I’m running against a woman who, my God, that’s all she talks about.”
Yeah, she should talk more about being the real fighter, the real rent-payer, and the real non-deadbeat in the race, like Good Ol’ Joe always does. [ThinkProgress]
