Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) deployed a strange attack on his Democratic opponent, Iraq War veteran and former Veterans Affairs official Tammy Duckworth, at a debate Tuesday night — brandishing a photo of her picking out a dress for the Democratic National Convention.

The point that Walsh intended to illustrate was that Duckworth was a political insider and a handpicked candidate of the national Democrats.

Poor, clueless, soon-to-be-unemployed Joe Walsh seriously misjudged the audience at Tuesday night's debate.
According to The Daily Herald:
Members of the audience booed profusely, but Walsh wasn’t fazed. He went on to address his criticism of Duckworth picking out her clothes for the Democratic convention — by holding up the photo.
The audience booed again, very loudly, as Walsh was finishing his statement. For her part, Duckworth accused Walsh of trying to distract from the issues — and she got in a kicker of her own.
“And yes, I do sometimes look at the clothes that I wear,” she said. “But for most of my adult life, I’ve worn one color — it’s called camouflage.”
Hahaha...beautiful. That's what I call a 'zinger'.
But see for yourself:
Thankfully, it looks like the electorate will no longer tolerate the boorish, dead-beat Teabagger Joe Walsh. Good riddance.
