At a recent town hall, GOP deadbeat dad Rep Joe Walsh belittled the military service of his Democratic opponent and double amputee Tammy Duckworth.

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.
Walsh was implying that Duckworth is trying to exploit her service for political gain. Embedded in his remarks was a criticism of her patriotism. She not a real patriot. She doesn’t really love America. Look at the way she talks about her military service.
