And this is how you know how much of the rah-rah, "support the troops", "America Fuck Yeah" patriotic rhetoric coming from R politicians is just a cynical ploy.

Yes. They have a warped sense of patriotism if it can even be called patriotism -- it's more like jingoism. Look at what they did to Max Cleland. The mainstreaming of "Swift Boating" military veterans, and so on. They have no true principles only cynical political goals to line the pockets of their backers and their own bank accounts.

And assistant secretary at the VA...hell of a lot more impressive than this douchebag.

Walsh is beyond contempt.

5 nines09  Sun, Apr 1, 2012 8:56:19am

Walsh is a perfect example of the Tea Party GOP. Perfect asshole.

What a disgusting creature this Walsh creep is. He is one of the tea party freshman Congress-critters from 2010, and virtually a poster-boy for suburban tea partyism.
He is also a deadbeat and general low-life of some note:

During his 2010 campaign as a fiscal conservative and following his election to Congress, personal financial issues were reported by the media such as past due child support, a recent condo foreclosure, and tax liens from the 1990s. Walsh explained that these issues have made him more attuned to the struggles of the average voter.

No, Joe, you money-grubbing buffoon, average voters do not have tax liens, condo foreclosures, or back child support problems. They do ordinarily show some decency toward disabled veterans, however.
He would probably respect Duckworth a lot more if she ran, say, a sweatshop temp business supplying workers to A-hole run business, or maybe a fast food franchise chain in some hellish suburban mall.

One thing Walsh is not is rich:
In 2010, he had a negative net worth of $317,498 according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

So, the scumbag has all sorts of ethical lapses, having spent most of his life chasing the almighty dollar, and he still winds up 300 grand in the hole. He is not even a competent grifter.

But it's ok because he's a republican right?

9 Archangelus  Sun, Apr 1, 2012 10:18:11am

"Supporter of the troops"? Enemy of the troops, more like... absolutely despicable...

10 Romantic Heretic  Sun, Apr 1, 2012 10:54:06am

Douchebag.

11 Atlas Fails  Sun, Apr 1, 2012 11:32:52am

This is nothing new. Look at Jim DeMint casting the sole Senate vote against a bill to give tax breaks to employers who hire veterans. Because freedomz and such. These fucking scumbags have no qualms about sending a tiny segment of the population off to a foreign hellhole to kill brown people for them, but as soon as they come home, they're expected to sink or swim as individuals by the party of creationist social Darwinists.

Tea Party: "We support our troops!"

Translation: More combat, more medals, fewer benefits.

He just doesn't want to admit that she's still tougher than he is, even without legs.

Great interview from 2009:

Ms. Duckworth will do a great patriotic service to this nation (again) if she defeats Walsh this fall. Perhaps I've found a candidate I can stand to donate to.

re: #8 Amory Blaine

But it's ok because he's a republican right?

Hell No, it isn't! When she first ran for Congress in 2006 my family in Illinois's 6th district voted for her opponent, Peter Roscam, and my father and I (neither of whom live in the 6th) gave Roscam money. But that was pro-Roscam, not anti-Duckworth.

This year, Walsh's campaign is the only contested Republican seat (IL-8) which my father and I will not be donating to. A small act, true, but one meant to underscore the depths of my contempt for Walsh. I disagree with Tammy Duckworth on many things, gun control heading the list, but she is honorable and Walsh is so clearly not as to render those policy differences irrelevant. Joe Walsh must go.

pure evil subhuman deadbeat dad fuck versus Tammy Duckworth? hell yeah

It's funny how "supporting the troops" never involves actually supporting the troops.

18 SanFranciscoZionist  Sun, Apr 1, 2012 8:29:13pm

Utterly appalling. This guy needs an ass-kicking. I suspect that Duckworth is the woman to do it, even if her feet are not the factory originals.

19 Decatur Deb  Mon, Apr 2, 2012 5:38:40am

I think she still has enough leg to kick his ass.
