"One of the dirtier House races this election cycle is between Rep. Joe Walsh, R-Ill., and Army vet Tammy Duckworth, who lost both of her legs in combat. Walsh has been attacking Duckworth for things like talking about her military career ("My God, that's all she talks about," he once said), and, now, wearing dresses.
At a debate, Walsh held up a photo of Duckworth and said: "I was marching in a parade in Schaumburg [Ill.[, Sunday, two days before the Democratic convention, when Tammy Duckworth was on a stage down in Charlotte [N.C.[ — if you can look at the picture — picking out a dress for her speech Tuesday night."* Jimmy Dore (The Jimmy Dore Show), Steve Oh (COO of The Young Turks) and RJ Eskow (The Breakdown, Huffington Post) break down why Rep. Joe Walsh, a man who dodged child support, would launch a sexist attack against a disabled U.S. Army veteran.
