    Nice touch with Crazy Train in the background.


  2. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Oct 31, 12 @ 10:06 am:

    “Joe Walsh - He stays on Message”


  3. - wordslinger - Wednesday, Oct 31, 12 @ 10:10 am:

    I don’t think Walsh is crazy. I think he coldly calculates his statements to appeal to fear and resentment along racial and religious lines.

    I’m sure all the African-American and Hispanic folks who got up early this morning to go to work were unaware that they had been made dependent on government.

    And I hope he’s shared with local law enforcement of Homeland Security his knowledge of active terrorist cells in Elk Grove Village.


  4. - And I Approved This Message - Wednesday, Oct 31, 12 @ 10:18 am:

    Sometimes when one of these odd characters leaves the stage,like Herman Cain for example,you feel a little twinge knowing that you’ll not be seeing their schtick again. The departure of Joe Walsh will not be one of those times.


  5. - ArchPundit - Wednesday, Oct 31, 12 @ 10:49 am:

    Don’t worry, Joe will be employed by Fox on about January 4th.


  6. - one of the 35 - Wednesday, Oct 31, 12 @ 11:06 am:

    These are examples of what can happen when you forget to think before you speak.


  7. - walkinfool - Wednesday, Oct 31, 12 @ 11:23 am:

    Kudos to Joe for saying what he thinks. A lot of politicians don’t.

    It makes voting against him so justified and easy.


  8. - ChicagoModerate - Wednesday, Oct 31, 12 @ 11:42 am:

    It’s a shame and to think the Tea Party use to stand for so much…Also I think his commerical with his son asking Tammy to stop is just plain desperate.


  9. - 312 - Wednesday, Oct 31, 12 @ 11:43 am:

    And why has this piece not been distributed earlier? I can only hope that it gets out to the “undecideds” fast enough before Tuesday.


  10. - Ronald RayGun - Wednesday, Oct 31, 12 @ 11:44 am:

    OOT35: “These are examples of what can happen when you forget to think before you speak.”

    Or when you say what you actually believe when you speak.


  11. - Wumpus - Wednesday, Oct 31, 12 @ 11:54 am:

    All he needs to do is show all the campaigns Duckworth has launched. She simply wants power. She ran for the 6th and the 8th while having the same address. Joe is far from perfect…very far. I do resent TD running for whatever office she thinks she can win, especially after the district is redrwan specifically so she can win.


  12. - Rich Miller - Wednesday, Oct 31, 12 @ 11:55 am:

    ===She ran for the 6th and the 8th while having the same address.===

    I don’t see what the problem is with that. Boundaries and district numbers were changed last year.


  13. - dave - Wednesday, Oct 31, 12 @ 12:06 pm:

    Hasn’t Walsh now run in 4 different districts?


  14. - wishbone - Wednesday, Oct 31, 12 @ 12:36 pm:

    Class is not a popular topic in our society, but it is clear that this guy is simply low class. Money has nothing to do with it you either have class or you don’t.


  15. - Old and In the Way - Wednesday, Oct 31, 12 @ 12:40 pm:

    - ChicagoModerate - Wednesday, Oct 31, 12 @ 11:42 am:

    It’s a shame and to think the Tea Party use to stand for so much…

    Please elaborate! I can’t wait for this ……..


  16. - 3rd Generation Chicago Native - Wednesday, Oct 31, 12 @ 12:42 pm:

    I just saw another new Walsh ad, just this morning, against him with all the figures on back child support he owed. I can only be glad I am not in this district, there must be a sign for one or the other every where.


  17. - Newsclown - Wednesday, Oct 31, 12 @ 12:48 pm:

    I think everybody should be urged to watch “A Voice In The Crowd”, and “Elmer Gantry”. once every 4 years.


  18. - State worker - Wednesday, Oct 31, 12 @ 2:07 pm:

    BUSTED! excellent


  19. - Cheryl44 - Wednesday, Oct 31, 12 @ 4:57 pm:

    Me too, NewsClown. And read “It Can’t Happen Here.”


  20. - Anonymous - Wednesday, Oct 31, 12 @ 6:25 pm:

    I think a good poll question will be how will Joe Walsh be earning a living after JAn 4th? Fox TV? FoxRadio? Breitbart (a la Joel Pollack)? RedState? WLS?


  21. - Esquire - Wednesday, Oct 31, 12 @ 10:05 pm:

    @Newsclown and Cheryl44:

    Right on!

    Two Sinclair Lewis novels referenced in the same thread! I thought that I was the only person who read his books!


  22. - Anonymous - Wednesday, Oct 31, 12 @ 11:39 pm:

    Just to think, Dirk Beveridge might have one if it weren’t for…ya. Never mind.


  23. - Wumpus - Thursday, Nov 1, 12 @ 12:01 pm:

    Mr. Miller, did the district change that much? I know she didn’t live in the 6th when she ran there.
