DO NOT CONGRATULATE!!
 
2018-07-16 02:12:58 PM  
Believe that when I don't see it.
 
2018-07-16 02:16:27 PM  
Easy for him to say. Life's been good to him (so far).
 
2018-07-16 02:21:52 PM  
Just wait until there's an anti-abortion, anti-Muslim, or tax reduction bill and Joe Walsh will be swinging from Trump's nuts again.

We told you so...

congressman who endorsed arming toddlers recently,

Be awhile before he lives that prank down, huh?
 
2018-07-16 04:26:48 PM  
who gives a shiat, you don't have any ability to actually do anything about it
 
2018-07-16 04:28:50 PM  
"RINO!" in 3...2...

Congrats and welcome to the Deep State Joe.
 
2018-07-16 04:31:41 PM  
We can and should be cynical, but this public condemnation isn't nothing. Cracks have formed and are spreading.
 
2018-07-16 04:32:01 PM  
Though infuriating that it's taken nearly two years for some of these Republicans to "come around," it does fill me with a modicum of hope that others will finally put their collective feet down as well.

Still, I'll believe it when I see it.
 
2018-07-16 04:32:55 PM  
is he ever going to pay his child support, though
 
2018-07-16 04:33:03 PM  
Until the Rs in Congress actually remove their heads from Trump's anus and actually DO something to stop him, they're just pissing in the wind.

2018-07-16 04:33:21 PM  
Maybe he can focus on paying child support now
 
2018-07-16 04:33:49 PM  
Sure he won't defend him.....until the next group of "socialists", "illegals", or "thugs" pops in the news, and then it'll be back to Daddy Trump's warm embrace.

They aren't sorry that they supported him - they're sorry that he got caught.

Dead for Tax Reasons: who gives a shiat, you don't have any ability to actually do anything about it


Well, yeah. You expect Republicans to discover their principles when it might matter?
 
2018-07-16 04:34:21 PM  
But he was, in fact, the ONLY saving grace of The Eagles.

god, I hate them.
 
2018-07-16 04:34:24 PM  
Bullshiat. He's still going to vote for him.

I can't find a meme of it, but I think of Pulp Fiction and the "Say what again" scene: "You aint talking your ass out of this one"

Joe Walsh, the former Illinois Republican congressman who endorsed arming toddlers recently,

Awesome. This guy will never live that down

lulululu_1: We can and should be cynical, but this public condemnation isn't nothing. Cracks have formed and are spreading.


True, but it's still disheartening that we had to get all the way to 'qualifies to be hung from a rope around the neck until dead' level crimes and misdemeanors before it became politically expedient for members of a certain political persuasion to tut tut a little bit about it.

ongbok: Joe Walsh, the former Illinois Republican congressman who endorsed arming toddlers recently,

He's generally a giant douche, but he at least didn't whine about being made to look stupid there.  Funny how the bar is set so low that he almost came out of supporting the arming of toddlers looking good.  (Only by comparison, obviously)

Dear God! For one solid year, they have been sitting here! A whole year! Doing nothing!

Piddle, twiddle and resolve...
Not one damn thing do we solve....

/ one useless man is called a disgrace,

Two are called a law firm,

And three, or more, become a Congress
 
2018-07-16 04:37:18 PM  
The cynic in me says they are just posturing before Midterms to assure swing voters that it's still ok to vote for traitors.
 
2018-07-16 04:38:28 PM  
Welcome to NeverTrump, Mr. Walsh Waders are to the left, boots are to the right, and I recommend investing in two umbrellas to handle all the shiat that gets flung at you from both sides. It's a dirty, thankless job, but soneone has to do it.

uberalice: But he was, in fact, the ONLY saving grace of The Eagles.

No, you don't. You heard Jeff Bridges say it in Big Lebowski, thought it was cool, so decided to parrot the statement in the hopes of achieving some residual coolness.

Let's not delve into the realm of fiction here...

Nah, just wait for the child support reform bill Trump supports.
 
2018-07-16 04:40:44 PM  
He's still going to support the Brett K for SCROTUS right?

So it doesn't matter
 
2018-07-16 04:40:58 PM  
pay your child support.
 
2018-07-16 04:41:11 PM  
Joe Walsh's ex-wife can vouch that when Joe stops supporting you he definitely sticks to it.

Has anyone mentioned child support yet?
 
2018-07-16 04:41:57 PM  
He is no longer in office.  His statement has the value of one of my dog's runny turds after he got into a bowl of chili.

Pfft.  I hated the eagles before it was cool.

That shiat was like watching Fredo defend Moe Greene.

Glenn Fry may never have, but lets be honest, all he did was clean up Jackson Brown's unfinished laundry...
 
2018-07-16 04:46:32 PM  
A bit (a lot) late to the party, Joe. But if he's finally realizing the Trump is a millstone around the GOP's neck, maybe there's still a glimmer of hope of us getting out of this without too much collateral damage.

I doubt it, because Trump is still too useful to the McConnell's and Paul's of the GOP, but maybe this is the...not turning point, but maybe the blinker's on now.

The party of personal responsibility would demand that the kid pays his own way.

Glenn Frey?  Does someone want to explain the Dennis Miller type joke to me?
 
2018-07-16 04:49:01 PM  
fark Walsh.

That said, the fact that he is making a statement like this is telling. This finally may be a real turning point. Trump just had disastrous back to back foreign visits, and committed the cardinal sin among Authoritarians...he was clearly and demonstrably the weaker element in every way.

This feels different, we have multiple sitting GOP Senators calling out Trump, and there seems to be no spin possible to that shameful display. Lets hope this breaks the spell.

Great, now I have thoughts of Rep. Joe Walsh banging cocktail waitresses two at a time going through my head.
