This isn't the first time this cock has talked shiat about her service.

Talk about double standards, can you imagine what would happen if the parties were reversed?

The shiat storm from the right would be epic.

I thought he lost his license because his Mazarati does 185.

Remember how mum John McCain was about his military service? I didn't even know about it until I read some smear campaign a couple years ago on ThinkProgress.

Nice.

2012-07-03 03:43:11 PM  
I think it's important to note that Walsh never served in the military.

Instead, he studied acting.
 
2012-07-03 03:47:11 PM  
Oh look, Walsh has released a statement. Let's read it:
"Of course Tammy Duckworth is a hero. I have called her a hero 100's of times in the past four months. Just like every man and woman who has worn the uniform, her service demands - demands - our utmost respect. That's why I recognize our veterans at the beginning of every one of my public town halls. However, unlike most veterans I have had the honor to meet since my election to Congress, who rarely if ever talk about their service or the combat they've seen, that is darn near all of what Tammy Duckworth talks about. Her service demands our thanks and our respect but not our vote. She is running for Congress - and there are real problems in this country like our massive debt, high unemployment and the Obamacare tax. We are about four months from Election Day and the people of Illinois have no idea where Tammy Duckworth stands on these issues because she dodges debate requests, ignores our invitations to speak at town halls, refuses to talk about solutions and constantly reminds voters of her war service. Our thoughts and prayers will always be with her for her service and her loss but these are serious times and the people of Illinois deserve to know what she thinks about real issues and what she will do as a Congresswoman."

First highlighted passage: of course she talks about her service, she doesn't have legs and because of that, people are going to ask, "so what happened to your legs?" It's kinda difficult to explain how she lost them without mentioning her time in Iraq. Think of it as the elephant in the room.

Second highlighted passage: Freudian slip or tasteless joke?

Third highlighted passage: "Our thoughts and prayers will always be with her for her service and her loss"? She's not dead, you idiot. That's what you say at a funeral.

Residents of the 8th: you gave up Melissa Bean, a Blue Dog, for this douchebag? Here in the 10th we elected a Republican as well, but at least he's comparatively sane compared to the rest of the party...

Its really a shame, because the mountains of western North Carolina are beautiful.

Go see them now while you still can.

Walsh is the worst of the worst... in fact he's in my Top 3 list of most despicable congressmen: Walsh, West, and Gohmert. Talk about "party first", these guys would burn down the country to advance their ideology.

Oh boo-farking-hoo. Y'all are acting like this is the first time you've seen a politician use a personal attack to get a leg up on his opponent.

I just don't think Hackworth should have to stand for this type of attack.

So, when it came to child support, he just turned and walked away?
 
2012-07-03 05:23:48 PM  
Well, we don't see him talking about his military service do we?
 
2012-07-03 05:58:52 PM  
I think he's the most obvious of the lack of ethics/intellect among the tea party sweep of 2010. He'll be gone soon. Even the Republicans in his district hate him.

The current population of the earth is about 6.8 billion people. If the current trend in population growth continues it will not be until 2016 that there are enough fists on the planet earth to give this guy the number of cockpunches he deserves.

I dunno, Walsh is pretty obviously an asshat, I would venture that he doesn't have a lot of support from his side on this one after all the shiat he's pulled. It doesn't even look like he's going to make re-election, honestly. Which would be why he's grasping at straws.

It wouldn't hurt if the media referred to her as Colonel on second reference, you know, like they do for guy veterans.

Looks like you are correct. Adjusting my figures it seems that in May of 2015 there will finally be enough fists on the earth to give this man the number of cockpunches he deserves.

It would have to be fully reversed, though, because Republicans can still get away with trivializing other Republicans' service.
