Rep. Joe Walsh Can't Stop Talking About Tammy Duckworth's Military Service

Eighth District Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Illinois)

Last week Eighth Congressional District Rep. Joe Walsh stepped in the briar patch with his comments that his Democratic opponent, Tammy Duckworth, talked too much about her military service. Either Walsh thinks if it's good enough for Duckworth it's good enough for him or he's simply a raging dick, because look who can't let it go.

Below is video from another town hall meeting where he let's his feelings known about Duckworth's mentions of her military service.

I do believe as someone who respects what Tammy Duckworth did with her service, as someone who is thankful, and someone who is sorry for her injuries, I do believe she talks about her service too much. And as a voter in this district, I would want to know where she stands on issues.

Walsh's obsession with Duckworth's obsession of her military service goes back months. In a March interview with Politico's David Cantanese Walsh had this to say about Duckworth.

“I have so much respect for what she did in the fact that she sacrificed her body for this country,” said Walsh, simultaneously lowering his voice as he leaned forward before pausing for dramatic effect. “Ehhh. Now let’s move on.”

“What else has she done? Female, wounded veteran … ehhh,” he continued. “She is nothing more than a handpicked Washington bureaucrat. David Axelrod, Rahm Emanuel just picked her up and dropped her into this district.”

We're gonna go with "raging dick."
