Sons and Dads

Perhaps the most odious man in Congress is Illinois Rep. Joe Walsh, who is back in the news because he referred to the president as son. "Son" and "boy" were terms used by white southerners to demean and infantilize black men, and the use of such epithets to refer to Barack Obama has been in play for years. Walsh is trying to blow the dogwhistle, but it's sounding more like a goddamn foghorn.

Oddly enough, the use of the word "son" by Walsh calls to mind the fact that Joe Walsh is a deadbeat dad. Funny, President Obama is a devoted family man who is taking good care of his two lovely daughters. Who's the real man, and who's the infantile boy here?

Walsh is a chrome-plated toolburger, besides being a deadbeat dad, he's denigrated the sacrifices made my his opponent, wounded Iraq War veteran Tammy Duckworth. He's so toxic, the SuperPAC ad for his district doesn't even mention him by name. It's time to put the race-baiting deadbeat on the unemployment line- don't worry about his wife and kids, because they don't get dime one from the creep even when he's working.

Oh please Tammy Duckworth isn't a paladin or something more like a neutral evil soldier for the empire. The racism is unfortunate, but as a black guy I see no no innocents here.

Where on the scum scale to locate Joe? I say "Scum that should be nowhere near elected office."

OK, but Duckworth had the guts to put her body on the line, which Deadbeat Joe did NOT.

How is this even an argument?

And BBBB, i think you have a pet troll! I am so jealous.

"Odious" really is the perfect adjective for Mr. Walsh.

You seem to be reading a lot into what I wrote about Tammy Duckworth. That being said, you'd prefer a deadbeat teabagger? I somehow don't think that Joe Walsh would have any compunctions about sending a kid to die in a war against Iran, while Duckworth would probably think twice about voting for a war, seeing as she's left two legs in a land that the U.S. attack unprovoked. Thanks for playing, though.

Well, the Eagles' fans hate Santa Claus, so there... I think.

How about "Scum that should be nowhere near civilized society"?

Yeah, right? It's kinda cute, in a creepy kind of way. I have to tell Provider_UNE and Jennifer now.

Innit, though?

I live in this district and can't wait to kick Joe "Deadbeat" Walsh to the curb come November.

Interestingly, I saw some yahoo on street corner waving a JW sign like an idiot. I gave him the big "thumbs down" sign and he started raving (even more!) and screaming obscenities at me. Freaking lunatics.

Also, did you check out JW's outfit in the video clip of his "son, son" rant? You're a United States Congressman?

Not only is this idiot a deadbeat dad, he can't even come up with his own legislation!
