Good morning all. I’m a few days late on this, but life intrudes. Representative Joe Walsh, a Tea Party Republican from Chicago, (How the hell did THAT happen?), was having a meeting with some of his constituents and he got a little frustrated with a few of them.
The video shows Representative Walsh, previously known for yelling out “You Lie!” during one of Obama’s State of the Union speeches1 trying to explain to a blockhead the real causes of the financial mess we find ourselves in. The constituent wasn’t bothering to listen so Representative Walsh finally blew up.
Representative Walsh was, as usual, correct and his constituent was dead wrong. Still this might have been a bit over the top…
Naaaa, It wasn’t. Some people are so stupid you have to apply the Texas Mule method of education.2
Rep. Walsh was a surprise victor in in the 2010 election. He represents the 8th District in Chicago, Illinois and squeaked in. Apparently the dead voters overslept on election day. Of course, the Democrats are solving that by redistricting Walsh and forcing him to compete against other Republicans.
It’s sad, but it appears Representative Walsh will be a one term member of Congress. We need people who say what they mean.
That is all for now.
