SITCOM?  5:15 pm July 5, 2012

Watch Joe Walsh Shout ‘Ashleigh’ At Ashleigh Banfield Ten Billion Times

by Jim Newell

He looks funny is the thingCharming Illinois Rep. Joe Walsh went on CNN today for an interview with anchor Ashleigh Banfield, of “getting demoted for criticizing network news coverage in the build-up to the Iraq War” fame. The subject was Walsh’s very mild recent comments about how double-amputee Iraq veteran and congressional candidate Tammy Duckworth won’t shut her dang mouth about her service, and therefore isn’t a Real Hero. What’s the problem, Banfield? And then she destroys him while he shouts her name for a number of minutes. We’re gonna miss Joe Walsh in January.

Hola wonkerados.

Also, if you are a new commenter, your comment may never appear. This is probably because we hate you.

Wake me know when Walsh pays his child support.

Maman July 5, 2012 at 6:42 pm

They settled and she seems to have some sort of clause preventing her from talking about the agreement. He however is allowed to call the situation a "misunderstanding" and issued a joint statement saying "Having resolved these issues together and cleared up these mistakes in private, we now agree that Joe is not and was not a 'deadbeat dad' and does not owe child support,". I hope she got a huge payoff for that bullshit.

tessiee July 5, 2012 at 10:11 pm

"Also, we've always been friends with Oceania."

Guppy July 5, 2012 at 8:37 pm

I'd change my handle to "Rip van Winkle"

Antispandex July 6, 2012 at 1:05 am

Those brats don't support the troups, Joe aint supportin' them!

Rorgg July 6, 2012 at 11:48 am

At least as of January he won't be MY Congresscritter any more, despite living in the same town. He got redistricted into the same as another Republican incumbent, who was inconveniently neither obviously batshit-insane not a complete flaming asshole 24/7, so he skittered to a more affluent area to run. Hmm, need to go find Duckworth's campaign site and make a contribution.

nounverb911 July 5, 2012 at 5:19 pm

ASHLEIGH! Sounds like Walsh is trying out for a revival of "Streetcar".

stncmchnc July 5, 2012 at 6:20 pm

Frankly Joe don't give a damn about supportin' no babies.

scvirginia July 5, 2012 at 6:28 pm

Let me know when he's willing to admit that he's always depended upon the kindness of strangers.

OzoneTom July 5, 2012 at 5:20 pm

"…she destroys him"

Like a Wrecking Ball!

timbo71351 July 5, 2012 at 5:21 pm

You know the guy running the re-election campaign for this dipshit is probably on suicide watch right about now. Or blind drunk

ChessieNefercat July 5, 2012 at 7:52 pm

I'm pretty sure being blind drunk was necessary to say to yourself, "Campaign manager for Joe "deadbeat dad" Walsh? Sounds like a great gig!"

Guppy July 5, 2012 at 8:39 pm

Hey, a gig's a gig until the checks start bouncing! Just ask Newt's campaign director!

(Seriously, I'd probably demand cash up front before working for a GOP campaign these days.)

OneYieldRegular July 5, 2012 at 5:21 pm

I just can't understand why such a charming guy has had such egregious family problems.

TribecaMike July 5, 2012 at 7:52 pm

I know, right? Here's a guy who likes nothing more than chillin' in his La-Z-Boy while puffing on a pipe and perusing his complete collection of "Dear Penthouse." And that's when he's at work.

Toomush_Infer July 6, 2012 at 10:01 am

Are there any more of those jobs open?….cause, um….

tessiee July 5, 2012 at 10:13 pm

Bitchez be crazy, amirite?

Antispandex July 6, 2012 at 1:12 am

I was thinking the same thing. I mean, what's NOT to love there?

Doktor Zoom July 5, 2012 at 5:22 pm

I regret nothing. How dare you keep quoting me! Ashleigh! Ashleigh! Sure she's a hero, Ashleigh, but all she ever talks about is her heroism, and that's so tiresome. Why won't she let me yell Tammy! Tammy! Tammy! at her a lot?

Also, it's my opinion, so no one can question it!

smokefilledroommate July 5, 2012 at 5:22 pm

More like 'shitcom'.. What a misogynist tool.

MissTaken July 5, 2012 at 5:22 pm

Worst Scarlett O'Hara impression evah.

Barb July 5, 2012 at 5:23 pm

Way to cut Ashley off at the knees, Joe.
"Ashley, did you serve in Iraq?'

rickmaci July 5, 2012 at 5:35 pm

Uh. Bit awkward first line there, given the topic. LMAO.

Barb July 5, 2012 at 5:45 pm

Sorry about that, Rickmaci. : )

rickmaci July 5, 2012 at 5:48 pm

;) I'd hit you with a heart sign but the damn code here won't pick it up. :)

Barb July 5, 2012 at 6:17 pm

♥ ❤ ❥
Take your pick.

smokefilledroommate July 5, 2012 at 5:48 pm

Barb doesn't mean to make jokes..

SexySmurf July 5, 2012 at 5:23 pm

I wish Ashleigh Banfield would destroy me as I shout her name for a number of minutes, if you know what I mean.

Not_So_Much July 5, 2012 at 5:23 pm

"Kiddo"? He speaks down to her as a comeback for her shredding him? This guy is savvy with the whole media thing, isn't he?

fartknocker July 5, 2012 at 5:25 pm

LA LA LA LA LA – elect me I'm really your best choice – LA LA LA LA LA. What a goat fucker.

ChessieNefercat July 5, 2012 at 7:54 pm

"What a goat fucker."

Best summation I've seen of that bellicose fucknozzle.

miss_grundy July 5, 2012 at 11:00 pm

Goat fucker, chupacabra, chupacabra, goat fucker.

MittBorg July 5, 2012 at 7:59 pm

Sir, you insult goats.

flamingpdog July 5, 2012 at 5:25 pm

Dear Joe Walsh,

Tammy Duckworth ain't the only one in the race without a leg to stand on.

Fuck you,
Pdog.

MittBorg July 5, 2012 at 8:00 pm

May I tweet this to Joe? I make a habit of tweeting him regularly with my opinion of him, or the opinions of others with whom/which I agree.

flamingpdog July 5, 2012 at 9:24 pm

I would be greatly disappointed if you didn't.

MittBorg July 6, 2012 at 12:30 am

Done: https://twitter.com/thepoliticalcat/status/221098

I hope he eats shit and lives to remain horrified by it daily.

Rorgg July 6, 2012 at 11:51 am

As a constituent, at least for a few more months, I just write him on his webpage. "Resign, you disgrace" is probably my finest concise work.

MittBorg July 6, 2012 at 12:25 pm

A grateful nation thanks you. He's not getting a whole lotta love on Teh InterToobz right now. I'm hoping this translates into a THUNDERING defeat at the polls. The nation deserves a Tammy Duckworth. NOBODY deserves a Bad Joe Walsh.

Walkinwiddaking July 5, 2012 at 5:26 pm

Yeah but the guy is wearing some kind of patriotic thing on his left lapel which more than trumps Ms. Duckworth's missing limbs. God. What an A number one asshole.

scvirginia July 5, 2012 at 6:32 pm

And I'm willing to bet it was made in China.

tessiee July 5, 2012 at 10:26 pm

His asshole?

starfanglednut July 6, 2012 at 9:31 am

Ah so.

rickmaci July 5, 2012 at 5:27 pm

I love Ashleigh.

Unfortunately, she IS a Canadian and you know how it is with mixed relationships; my mother says they never work.

sullivanst July 5, 2012 at 6:41 pm

She pointed out in the interview, she just became a citizen. USA! USA! USA!

fuflans July 5, 2012 at 11:02 pm

fuck you rickm i am a MIXD RELATIONSHIP and you are eVIl soCIALizmms

(this is the time when my canadian part will apologize profusely).

LettucePrey July 5, 2012 at 5:29 pm

I only want to say that "Ashleigh Banfield" is the whitest white name of any white person, ever. That's like a black newsanchor named Shaniqua LaTawnya Jackson.

DrunkIrishman July 5, 2012 at 5:35 pm

Mitt Romney questions this claim.

rickmaci July 5, 2012 at 5:37 pm

See above. She's Canadian. Whiter than white, but they are commies.

Billmatic July 5, 2012 at 5:41 pm

Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch says hello.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benedict_Cumberbatch

emmelemm July 5, 2012 at 5:47 pm

That's the British-ist white whitey person name ever.

He's cute, though. Call me, Cumberbatch! I'd even change my last name for you! (No, I wouldn't.)

Billmatic July 5, 2012 at 5:48 pm

Seriously it sounds like a nobby joke name from Blackadder or something.

SIR TALBOT BUXOMLEY

BoatOfVelociraptors July 5, 2012 at 7:05 pm

He makes a good Sherlock.

MosesInvests July 5, 2012 at 7:57 pm

And he's going to be the voice of Smaug in "The Hobbit".

Biel_ze_Bubba July 6, 2012 at 8:55 am

Indeed! "Sherlock" is on my (very) short list of DVDs worth owning. Check it out: Season 1 is on Netflix.

(A 30-something actor with seven "most acclaimed" roles must be doing something right.)

tessiee July 5, 2012 at 10:27 pm

"Cumberbatch" sounds like he put his tuxedo on wrong.

Jukesgrrl July 5, 2012 at 6:42 pm

She lives in New Canaan, Connecticut, where the MEDIAN home price is $1.5 mill so I think it's not odd to be whiter-than-white there.

tessiee July 5, 2012 at 10:16 pm

"I only want to say that "Ashleigh Banfield" is the whitest white name of any white person, ever."

That's kinda how I feel about "Blake Lively", which is apparently the name of a person.

Chet Kincaid July 6, 2012 at 12:38 am

I dunno, I know many black Ashleys, and Banfield wouldn't be absurd as a surname. Is it the "Ashleigh" spelling that's the eye roller?

horsedreamer_1 July 6, 2012 at 6:26 pm

Most black Ashleys, & half of white Ashleys in the South, are male, though.

Chichikovovich July 6, 2012 at 3:49 am

It isn't even the whitest name of someone from Manitoba. They had a premier a few years ago called Sterling Lyon. (A Tory, as you might have guessed.)

Billmatic July 5, 2012 at 5:29 pm

So how many of these Teatard freshmen are one and done Reps?

rickmaci July 5, 2012 at 5:37 pm

Oh please god, all of them.

emmelemm July 5, 2012 at 5:48 pm

From your lips to {insert deity of choice or impersonal wheel of fate here} 's ears.

sullivanst July 5, 2012 at 6:42 pm

The impersonal wheel of fate has ears? Interesting.

Geminisunmars July 5, 2012 at 6:50 pm

Shhhhh! Don't let it hear you.

emmelemm July 5, 2012 at 6:54 pm

Unfortunately, with the impersonal wheel of fate, you can whisper at it all you want, but it ignores you. (Being impersonal and all.)

MittBorg July 5, 2012 at 8:02 pm

All the better to hear you with, mein kind.

MittBorg July 5, 2012 at 8:01 pm

I add my voice to this plea.

Negropolis July 5, 2012 at 11:59 pm

I actually saw some article on this, yesterday, and I think politicos have identified only nine, yes, nine, that are sure goners because of redistricting. I have a feeling that's it's going to be a lot more than that, though. I really do think the political class is overstating the effect redistricting will have on shoring up their gains.

Slamhole July 5, 2012 at 5:30 pm

Sounds like Vivian Leigh in gone With the wind.

SorosBot July 5, 2012 at 5:32 pm

I'm beginning to suspect that Joe Walsh may have a slight problem with women.

rickmaci July 5, 2012 at 5:37 pm

Ya think?

Maman July 5, 2012 at 6:14 pm

or anyone else he thinks is inferior to himself….

Jukesgrrl July 5, 2012 at 6:38 pm

… which would be anyone lacking a tri-cornered hat, a Hoveround, and/or a protection from abuse order, no?

MittBorg July 5, 2012 at 8:02 pm

Just a teensy, tiny little one.

flamingpdog July 5, 2012 at 9:33 pm

Just another reason why he has a slight problem with women – he has a teensy, tiny little one.

MittBorg July 6, 2012 at 12:39 am

Ow. You're probly right, though. Man with anything to brag about don't gotta be yelling so loud alla time.

CrunchyKnee July 5, 2012 at 5:32 pm

It just amazes me to no end how these stupid fucking idiotic knuckle dragging Koch suckers got elected in the first place, but then I turn on the cable teevee and weep. Pass me the LSD25 and I'll see y'all in December.

metamarcisf July 5, 2012 at 5:32 pm

Miss him in January? He'll be handed a Foxnews assignment the day after he loses the election.

rickmaci July 5, 2012 at 5:39 pm

Fux won't have him because even they require the ability to utter a noun and verb in somewhat close proximity to each other.

CrunchyKnee July 5, 2012 at 5:40 pm

Sarah Palin?

rickmaci July 5, 2012 at 5:44 pm

She got a pass because she named all her kids for snowmobile parts.

Jukesgrrl July 5, 2012 at 6:44 pm

Does he even know what his kids are named?

comrad_darkness July 5, 2012 at 5:33 pm

Joe Walsh, more than anything else on this planet, makes me comprehend the right wing complaint of government welfare queens sucking at the government teat, too lazy and useless to get an actual job and earn the air they breathe.

ChessieNefercat July 5, 2012 at 7:57 pm

You should send that to Lt Col Duckworth so her campaign can put it on a billboard.

gullywompr July 5, 2012 at 5:34 pm

Joe seems to be amputating his own tenure.

ChessieNefercat July 5, 2012 at 9:39 pm

I think he has a very tiny tenure. He should be careful when amputating it.

smokefilledroommate July 6, 2012 at 12:01 am

Or masticating his own manure.

stroge July 5, 2012 at 5:34 pm

sometimes i wish i could dip off into the delusional/fantasy reality that these white T.E.A. Party goons live in. must be tough to be a douchebag.

scvirginia July 5, 2012 at 7:07 pm

Please don't even go there. Visiting the teabagger fantasy world must be very like being consumed by an oversized blanc mange…

MittBorg July 6, 2012 at 12:41 am

They don't seem to find it so very tough at all.

DrunkIrishman July 5, 2012 at 5:35 pm

Ashleigh…Ashleigh…Ashleigh! Will you pay my child support?

edgydrifter July 5, 2012 at 5:35 pm

The mouth says "kiddo," but the eyes scream "BITCH! SAMMICH! NOW!" This guy is an Amercian treasure.

Monsieur_Grumpe July 5, 2012 at 5:50 pm

I'm sure you mean that in the sense that even cow poop has some value.

sullivanst July 5, 2012 at 6:45 pm

Cow poop has considerably more value than Walsh – it's a fertilizer, after all. Joe Walsh never helped anything grow, except Wonketteers' ire.

tessiee July 5, 2012 at 10:31 pm

Cow poop can grow magic mushrooms… um… so I've heard.

MittBorg July 6, 2012 at 12:42 am

You heard right.

ChessieNefercat July 5, 2012 at 8:19 pm

I'll bet that wide open nasty-ass hollering piehole of his has screamed that any number of times.

fuflans July 5, 2012 at 11:10 pm

by 'american treasure', i assume you mean "that thing we lost in that desert once outside LA when the weather was really crappy and we were fighting a lot"?

yes?

Ashleigh_Joe July 5, 2012 at 5:37 pm

God this post was basically made for me, individually.

Estproph July 5, 2012 at 5:37 pm

She didn't destroy him. He's still around. Damn.

ASHLEIGH_Joe July 5, 2012 at 5:51 pm

Next time, she should make sure to stuff his head with communion wafers and bury it at a crossroads.

SayItWithWookies July 5, 2012 at 5:40 pm

“I’ve called Tammy Duckworth a hero, hundreds of times. This is a manufactured issue, because when I’m out there — hey look, this is the lay of the land out there now. When I’m out there, I’m being taped by Tammy Duckworth’s people. They are manufacturing this crisis—”

Oh right — whose fault is it that Joe Walsh is demeaning Tammy Duckworth and getting called an asshole for it? Tammy Duckworth's. Jesus fucking Christ — Walsh clearly hasn't been hurt enough by his own selfish stupidity for him to recognize when he's doing it, has he?

Designer_Radio July 5, 2012 at 6:56 pm

Hey, he belongs to The Party Of Personal Responsibility! Surely that means he knows whose fault it is that he's an insufferable asshole.

LetUsBray July 5, 2012 at 7:24 pm

Obama's, specifically.

rickmaci July 5, 2012 at 7:12 pm

Can you say m-a-c-a-c-a?

Biel_ze_Bubba July 6, 2012 at 8:45 am

"I’m being taped by Tammy Duckworth’s people. They are manufacturing this crisis—”

Uh, Joe … they aren't "manufacturing" it. They're just fucking taping it.
I know this is kinda complicated, but sit down and study this until you've got a good grip on the basic idea: If you stop saying stupid shit, they won't tape you saying stupid shit.

MittBorg July 6, 2012 at 1:10 pm

I'm still verschlumpt that this schlump passed the Bar exam. ANY Bar exam.

Biel_ze_Bubba July 6, 2012 at 4:32 pm

He passed the one where there are eight drinks on the bar, he drinks seven of them, and has to tell the bartender how many are left.

He passed it on his third attempt.

Extemporanus July 5, 2012 at 5:40 pm

WALSH: "Do you find me sadistic? You know, Kiddo, I'd like to believe that you're aware enough even now to know that there's nothing sadistic in my actions. At this moment, this is me at my most masochistic."

BANFIELD: "Joe, it's your campaign."

Limeylizzie July 5, 2012 at 5:41 pm

I hope this bastardy, fucking, buggering, cunt-faced, bloated, greasy-haired, mouth-breathing, Guinness-swilling, woman-abusing , self-involved, Tea-bagging clown is out in November.

The rest I can let you have at 80% off. But I just am NOT going to concede Guiness-swilling to these toff-wannabe-prats! (Did I do that right, LL? Or have I mixed up my Brit derogatories?)

fuflans July 5, 2012 at 11:17 pm

i have said before that this particular cunt makes me more stabby than most, but now i have to live by the sword, so to speak, and am actively working for tammy.

and it's been a loonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnngggggggg fucking campaign.

so. if any of you all feel like helping tammy… we would SO be happy for it.

i will not link as it's not hard to find.

Limeylizzie July 5, 2012 at 11:20 pm

Good for you! I despise that Walsh person, what a bastard he is. I am giving money even as we speak.

C_R_Eature July 6, 2012 at 6:04 am

Done. Send this awful jackass home.

MittBorg July 6, 2012 at 12:44 am

Lizzie, do I get the sense that you might have some aversion to the fine, upstanding citizen known as Joe (The Bad One) Walsh?

johnnyzhivago July 5, 2012 at 5:42 pm

Look, Duckworth gave both her legs for America, but Joe Walsh appears to have sacrificed his one and only brain for the Tea Party.

ChessieNefercat July 5, 2012 at 8:21 pm

He had a brain at one point? Huh.

smokefilledroommate July 5, 2012 at 8:51 pm

This comment has been determined unoriginal by its author.

rickmaci July 5, 2012 at 5:43 pm

I thought for a moment he was doing a reading of Gone with the Wind: "Oh Ashleigh, Ashleigh, Ashleigh…"

JustPixelz July 5, 2012 at 5:56 pm

Especially when he said "As God is my witness, my children will go hungry again."

Groupshrug July 5, 2012 at 5:43 pm

Joe Walsh, I suggest a different, classier approach;

Suggest that the Obamacare death panels will probably put her to death because she's an amputee. Then you can use that reasoning to say the Obamacare death panels will kill veterans. That will make you a defender of veterans, because you don't want them to be killed by Obamacare death panels.

starfanglednut July 5, 2012 at 6:18 pm

Don't give him any ideas.

sullivanst July 5, 2012 at 6:47 pm

Stay out of it, Frank Luntz.

TribecaMike July 5, 2012 at 5:44 pm

"Taking it on the chin" doesn't mean what she thinks it means.

BloviateMe July 5, 2012 at 5:44 pm

Chicken hawk telling vets how they are supposed to behave.

I'd like him to swing by here and inform the guys in the shop wearing the "Vietnam Vet" hats why they should quit pretentiously sporting these "look at me" devices. I'm CERTAIN the advice will be well received.

MittBorg July 6, 2012 at 12:47 am

I went over to Twitter and called him 19 kinds of chickenhawk, and called on all teh vets I know to kick his ass on Twitter. Tammy Duckworth is a high-ranking member of IAVA, who have called for Walsh to resign. Other vet organizations are rallying around her as we speak. I'm hoping he'll be out sooner than he thinks.

Chick-Fil-Atheist™ July 5, 2012 at 5:47 pm

I say Ashleigh's name about as often when I'm fapping… over straight-Anderson-Cooper-lookalike Joe Walsh.

Sassomatic July 5, 2012 at 5:47 pm

So John McCain is not a Real Hero?

finallyhappy July 5, 2012 at 5:54 pm

He is a Republican- they are all real heroes- the ones who fought, the ones who got 5 deferments, the ones who went to France to convert people, the ones who insult real veterans- being a Republican is enough

Joe Walsh is a piece of garbage. Nuff said.

Monsieur_Grumpe July 5, 2012 at 5:51 pm

He kind of raises the bar on obnoxiousness.

ASHLEIGH_Joe July 5, 2012 at 5:52 pm

Who actually says "kiddo", in language, ever?

Other than hyperbolic caricatures of misogyny, I mean.

smokefilledroommate July 5, 2012 at 6:09 pm

Not to mention, they're only like five or six years apart..

ASHLEIGH_Joe July 5, 2012 at 6:11 pm

FIVE AND A HALF YEARS, ALAN ASHLEIGH, ASHLEIGH, ASHLEIGH.

Jukesgrrl July 5, 2012 at 6:48 pm

He thought it was less demeaning than "sweetie."

emmelemm July 5, 2012 at 7:51 pm

Toots.

ChessieNefercat July 5, 2012 at 8:24 pm

You all know that's his "safe" word for those occasions where people would get all pissy over him saying "bitch" or "c*nt, like the bitch deserves.

Chet Kincaid July 6, 2012 at 12:52 am

Aaron Sorkin characters?

bobbert July 6, 2012 at 11:09 pm

I say it to my ex-stepdaughter sometimes.

Joshua Norton July 5, 2012 at 5:53 pm

There just HAS to be a sex scandal or 2 in this guy's background. He obviously thinks he's some kinda date bait stud.

smokefilledroommate July 5, 2012 at 6:32 pm

Yes! That's why he can't pay child support. He's 'Rapey Joe' Walsh–hush money is his first priority!

mavenmaven July 5, 2012 at 5:56 pm

The things that guy does with his mouth during this interview suggests that after being voted out in January he has a bright future in porn.

tessiee July 5, 2012 at 10:41 pm

As do the things he does with his mouth after the cameras have been turned off. I bet.

ASHLEIGH_Joe July 5, 2012 at 5:58 pm

I kinda love that Joe managed to complain about Tammy Duckworth being a vet, literally hours before July 4th. It's like he doesn't even WANT to be re-elected.

ChessieNefercat July 5, 2012 at 8:25 pm

And on July 4th.

ManchuCandidate July 5, 2012 at 5:58 pm

Remember when GOPers would gush over military service that it was almost as great as Jeebus? Yeah, me neither.

sullivanst July 5, 2012 at 6:50 pm

I do: when the service was John McCain's or Bob Dole's.

rickmaci July 5, 2012 at 7:14 pm

They love to talk about supporting the troops. They just don't like the troops.

emmelemm July 5, 2012 at 7:50 pm

They love to talk about supporting the troops, which really means supporting the multi-billion dollar corporations of the military-industrial complex by pumping taxpayer monies into unnecessary and/or substandard equipment for our armed forces.

The actual TROOPS, well, meh…

Fairtackle July 5, 2012 at 6:12 pm

Okay, I am trying to think of something nice to say about Joe Walsh, well, here goes;

filthy piece of distended rectum

ah well, I tried.

Ducksworthy July 5, 2012 at 6:22 pm

Please keep in mind that Reince Priebus is the trademarked name for a prolapsed rectum. Calling Congressman Walsh a filthy piece of distended rectum, while accurate, is getting close to infringing on the Priebus franchise.

Fairtackle July 5, 2012 at 6:34 pm

I thought Reince Priebus was an onamonapia, .

tessiee July 5, 2012 at 10:48 pm

I thought Reince Priebus was a rebus.

starfanglednut July 5, 2012 at 7:18 pm

Filthy distended rectum libel!

BlueStateLibel July 5, 2012 at 6:16 pm

Wait, what's the blonde lady's name? I didn't catch that.

ChessieNefercat July 5, 2012 at 8:25 pm

That took me a second.

starfanglednut July 5, 2012 at 6:20 pm

That woman has amazing bone structure.

ChessieNefercat July 5, 2012 at 8:26 pm

And patience.

tessiee July 5, 2012 at 10:53 pm

The Former Mr. Tessie once said that Ashleigh looked like a combination of Tina Fey and Julia Louis Dreyfus.

rocktonsam July 5, 2012 at 6:20 pm

wondering what kind of health care his kids have and who pays for it.

if DCFS hasn't been called, they should be, an intervention is appropriate in this case

his kids deserve a father not an asshole

James Michael Curley July 5, 2012 at 9:24 pm

Huff Po listed Joe Walsh as a congressman opposed to and planning to repeal the ACA but his 24 year old son benefits from being on his parent policy.

ChessieNefercat July 5, 2012 at 9:42 pm

I believe the son is on mom's policy according to good old kid-supporting Joe.

rocktonsam July 5, 2012 at 9:46 pm

its funny how nobody, not even Fox Newz comes to his defense.

may be the tea party could be about over

James Michael Curley July 6, 2012 at 7:16 am

One estimate I saw, and I wish I flagged it to follow it, predicted that of about 26 ‘tea party’ congress members elected in 2010, 14 are in the margin of error or below the majority in approval and voter preference.

starfanglednut July 5, 2012 at 6:21 pm

JOE! JOE! JOE! JOE! JOE!

Pay ur fuckin child support.

TribecaMike July 5, 2012 at 6:37 pm

But he had "a verbal deal" not to pay it! http://www.suntimes.com/news/nation/8173663-418/r

sullivanst July 5, 2012 at 6:57 pm

So he's fucking stupid in addition to being completely obnoxious?

Apparently Joe is not familiar with the old joke that a verbal agreement is "not worth the paper it's printed on".

shortsandpants July 5, 2012 at 6:35 pm

"LISTEN, Ashley. I don't go around boasting about my pointless life, you reprobate! At least I have the DECENCY to ride the coattails of others for personal gain. I mean— Jeebus. If I lost my damned legs fighting for this country and had to sit in a wheelchair, who would hear the words coming out of my ass? Ridiculous."

TribecaMike July 5, 2012 at 6:40 pm

You just know in two years max this schmuck is going to be on Judge Judy suing a landlord for a security deposit.

sullivanst July 5, 2012 at 6:58 pm

Only for the landlord to produce pictures of the walls covered in feces and the DNA tests proving it's Walsh's.

Preacher_Griz July 5, 2012 at 6:45 pm

Somebody so incapable of shouting down a MSM tramp like Ashleigh doesn't deserve to be called a Conservative Christian!!!

MittBorg July 6, 2012 at 12:59 am

Dang, that is one hot Lady In The Red Dress there.

Must be some kinda teevee personality.

What…did Joe Walsh get his start on "The Brady Bunch"?

flamingpdog July 5, 2012 at 9:40 pm

Like most Rethuglitards, he's a member of "The 'Fraidy Bunch".

smokefilledroommate July 6, 2012 at 12:04 am

He raped the first Cindy then threw her in a drainage ditch. Sherwood Schwartz went to his grave knowing that information.

Self-Uploader July 5, 2012 at 7:02 pm

He got elected to Congress? By people who vote?
Shit,. That's why I never leave my bubble.

TribecaMike July 5, 2012 at 7:42 pm

Typical gun totin' lib'ral.

flamingpdog July 5, 2012 at 9:41 pm

Practicing WITH VOTING!

Negropolis July 6, 2012 at 12:08 am

With votes, of course. And, by "at the range" I'm certain you meant the golfing.

C_R_Eature July 6, 2012 at 6:05 am

They're only survey marks.

Negropolis July 6, 2012 at 6:22 am

The is no other way to design a golf course.

C_R_Eature July 6, 2012 at 6:32 am

That's true. Precision is important.

Unutterable shitheel says what?

TribecaMike July 5, 2012 at 7:29 pm

After catching Bill Nye talking about climate change on CNN the other day, I think he should conduct all of their interviews from now on. Their ratings would go through the roof and we might even learn something (the following video is short, sweet and to the point)… http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/badastronomy/20

MittBorg July 5, 2012 at 7:55 pm

Baba_NinjaCat12 July 5, 2012 at 8:00 pm

G.I. Joe Walsh has amputation envy.

I'll bet his wife would be happy to oblige.

I'll concede the minute brain. But having large semicircular canals implies that he is well-balanced.

C_R_Eature July 5, 2012 at 9:25 pm

"Assfish". It's all about the common name. "Bony-Eared" is just the insult cherry on top of the Insult Sundae.

not that Radio July 5, 2012 at 10:01 pm

Ah. I missed the common name, all focused on the description. Sweet.

C_R_Eature July 5, 2012 at 10:15 pm

That's the Clever Bit!

MittBorg July 6, 2012 at 1:11 am

Well, yes, but aren't acanthoni, you know, DEEP?

Joe is as shallow as a fucking TIDEpool, CRE.

C_R_Eature July 6, 2012 at 5:58 am

Oh, I dunno…a mini-brained bottom feeder who's always in the dark is pretty spot-on, I think. And, again, it's all about the common name

sbj1964 July 5, 2012 at 8:09 pm

Walsh is such a dick! Liar! Liar! pants on fire! Teabagging F@cktard!

Blueb4sunrise July 5, 2012 at 8:49 pm

Just got to see this.
BWWWWWWWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Fucking, spitting , snorting , hysterical!!!!

We need to set this to [some sort of] music.

Next week, Joe's gonna go on the Today show and say, "Matt, Matt, Matt, Matt, Matt", while Tom Cruise seethes with envy in his living room.*
`
`
`
*PS. After Tom Cruise's appearance on the Today show where he said "Matt, Matt, Matt, Matt, Matt", his co-workers had a Tshirt made for Matt's birthday present that had, "Matt, Matt, Matt, Matt, Matt" printed on it.

ttommyunger July 5, 2012 at 10:44 pm

Joe Walsh, Joe the Plumber, meh. Now the she-male: without the glasses I'd want to bang her. With the glasses, I think I'd bang her and then talk to her for a couple of hours.

Jadetiger79 July 5, 2012 at 11:06 pm

So…why not cut his mike and say what needs to be said and then turn it back on and watch the fireworks?

Imagine the comedy gold that would be pouring forth from that hellish maw.

ChessieNefercat July 5, 2012 at 11:35 pm

That's an excellent idea and I hope somebody follows through before he goes all Foxhole on us.

Toomush_Infer July 6, 2012 at 10:08 am

Nah, this was so much better – congressmen always want to think they own the airways, and it's such a surprise when somebody else does…

Negropolis July 5, 2012 at 11:48 pm

"Oh god no, Ashleigh."

Oh, STFU.

Negropolis July 6, 2012 at 6:19 am

BTW, I love the whole "Sweetie, men are talking." undertone to the whole thing. It took whatever little bit of self-control he has left to not call her outside of her name.

MittBorg July 6, 2012 at 1:12 pm

You called it! He was practically having to hold his jaw shut on anything more offensive than "kiddo." What a fucking egotistical prick.

valthemus July 6, 2012 at 12:18 am

I'd need to believe the person he ran against when he got elected to Congress was an even more ginormous loser than Walsh which would explain why actual humans — possessing at least the minimal cognitive faculties needed to operate a voting machine — cast their votes for this sorry, sorry talking turd.

In a just universe, kids in an Illinois summer camp would be making craft wallets out of him right now.

glamourdammerung July 6, 2012 at 12:27 am

I remember when people had enough pride in themselves that they would never say such a stupid thing publicly, let alone double down on it.

unclejeems July 6, 2012 at 1:59 am

What? Defeat Joe Walsh and retire the sponsor of such glittering pieces of legislation in this Congress as:

JH REs 56: A House resolution to "git the budget balanced, dammit!"
HR.2457: The Palestinian Accountability Act. Goddam those previously unaccountable Palestians!
H.R.2945: The Capital Gains Inflation Relief Act of 2011. In this economy, who needs more relief than anyone with a capital to gain.
H.R.3987: The Small Business Protection Act of 2012. For reasons plain to all.

And to top it all off:

H.R.3403: The Save Christmas Act. Christmas was dying. Then along came the hero Walsh.

He's practically a 21st Century Henry Clay.

FYI Joe defeated incumbent Mellisa Bean in 2010, although she out-spent him 4 to 1. The Teatard was strong in that district. Now, maybe not so much.

Cheers!

telecustom1972 July 6, 2012 at 7:19 am

On the brighter side, Walsh, who is known for being a doting father, will have plenty of time to spend with his kids come November.

Biel_ze_Bubba July 6, 2012 at 8:12 am

Memo to Illinois voters:

Although it is true that idiots are entitled to representation, it is not necessary that their representative be an idiot.

josephmax July 6, 2012 at 8:36 am

Here's his problem: your basic model of teabagging mouth-breather has been conditioned to love them some Iraq War vets. "U-S-A!!!!" Walsh has to run against that, so he needs to knock Duckworth off the pedestal somehow. The "purple band-aid" bit they used against Kerry is obviously worthless in this case. So this is what he came up with. It's somewhat effective when used in a crowd of teabaggers, but outside that bubble it's damnable. Since he's got nothing else, he's got to double down or lose the teabaggers. Teabaggers stay home on election day, he's out.

Sucks to be him.

Tammy Duckworth does more for this country before 5 am than Joe Walsh does in a year. And thats with her missing 25 percent of her body. Im jus' sayin'

Toomush_Infer July 6, 2012 at 10:05 am

Ashleigh didn't serve in Iraq: Joe Walsh spent his military years in the Lee Strasberg Acting School, that's his opinion….fuck the turd….

Well wish I had good news to report. She got her latest scan results today. No new growth in the lung & colon tumors but the liver wasn't as cooperative. They put her on a new chemo so she won't have to take a pump home for a day to deliver more of the nasties. She's such a trooper that she's looking to the coming school term and figuring she'll only have to miss Fridays now every two weeks instead of Thursday & Friday.
