Deadbeat dad and all around douchebag Joe Walsh kicks up the boorishness another notch:
WALSH: Understand something about John McCain. His political advisers, day after day, had to take him and almost throw him against a wall and hit him against the head and say, “Senator, you have to let people know you served! You have to talk about what you did!” He didn’t want to do it, wouldn’t do it. Day after day they had to convince him. Finally, he talked a little bit about it, but it was very uncomfortable for him. That’s what’s so noble about our heroes. Now I’m running against a woman who, my God, that’s all she talks about. Our true heroes, it’s the last thing in the world they talk about. That’s why we’re so indebted and in awe of what they’ve done.
First things first. That Joe Walsh, another wingnut warmongering chickenhawk, would even dare to criticize double amputee Tammy Duckworth’s service, is enough to wish the motherfucker would go hunting with Dick Cheney.
Now let’s unpack the rest of this nonsense. The notion that McCain refused to talk about his service is simply absurd. It’s all he ever talked about, to the point that I had to make a new tag for this website. The theme of his campaign was… “COUNTRY FIRST,” which was a direct reference to his service and time as a POW. Here’s a link to McCain’s introduction video at the Republican convention in 2008. For demonstration purposes, here is a screenshot of the opening frame:
The open words were “Some know him as a warrior, a soldier…”
These sociopaths will just lie about anything. It doesn’t even have to be something that happened decades ago, but something that happened last week. They just don’t care, and shamelessly spew nonsense.
