Republican Rep. Joe Walsh from Illinois Labeled America’s Most Offensive Congressman

Joe Walsh, America’s Most Offensive Congressman ®, doubled and then tripled down on his comments disparaging Tammy Duckworth today in an interview on CNN. I lost count of how many times he says “Ashleigh” here, but if it were a drinking game you’d have gotten alcohol poisoning.

In a heated interview with CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield this afternoon, Rep. Joe Walsh, the controversial Republican Illinois, quadrupled down on his attack on his Democratic opponent’s military service, while also taking the opportunity to call Banfield “kiddo,” and defend his previous attempt to humiliate an octogenarian political opponent. Walsh said he didn’t regret attacking Tammy Duckworth, his rival who lost both her legs fighting in Iraq: “I’m not going to back down from anything I’ve said.”

His initial comments came during a town hall last week, when he said of her service, “my God, that’s all she talks about.” When asked about the swipe by Politico, he explained, “I have so much respect for what she did in the fact that she sacrificed her body for this country. … Ehhh. Now let’s move on.”

The entire interview was over 12 minutes, which DemRapidResponse (DNC) put immediately on YouTube. I couldn’t in good conscience subject you to the entire thing though. Suffice to say though, the clock on Joe Walsh remaining in congress is ticking.
