Joe Walsh’s idiotic and offensive comment.

ImageI try to avoid US politics these days, but I have to admit that hearing someone who never served in the military call someone who was wounded in combat not a true hero really pisses me off.

During the First World War, women used to hand out white feather for cowardice, there was one woman who tried to hand someone a feather on a tram, but he couldn’t get up to accept it since he lost both legs in combat.

Of course, the woman was suitably chastened.

I only hope that a similar humiliation awaits Walsh.

I have to admit to supporting Duckworth now, not that it would have taken me too much of a push given that Walsh is offensive in more than one way to me.
