Representative Joe Walsh vs. Lieutenant Colonel Tammy Duckworth

Tammy Duckworth

I don’t care if you’re a Democrat or a Republican (or whether you’re lucky enough to still have your legs), but Congressman Joe Walsh’s insistence on REPEATEDLY bringing up his opponent Tammy Duckworth’s military career so he can berate her for “Talking about her service too much” is completely inappropriate.

She’s not the one talking about it, Joe. If that’s the way he feels he needs to win an election, and voters are still willing to vote for him, that’s pretty pathetic.

Duckworth, in case you don’t know, is a Bangkok-born US National Guard helicopter pilot who lost both her legs in Iraq.

I do not mean to suggest that is, in and of itself a good enough reason to vote for her.

But it’s a good enough reason to WATCH YOUR FUCKING MOUTH, Representative Walsh.

    I recently read a piece that explained that this was Karl Rove’s technique for dealing with Democrats: go after their strongest point, not the weakest, and cast doubt on it, even if it means you’re lying through your teeth. Your candidate is a draft dodger and deserter, and the opponent has a Silver Star and three Purple Hearts? That’s how “swiftboating” became a verb.
