The GOP has become known far and wide as the anti-science party. They don’t believe in climate change, evolution, you name it, they both diss and disbelieve it. Except, that is, when it suits their purposes.Enter extreme stage right, soon to be former Congressman Joe Walsh aka the Other Joe Walsh:
Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) had a Todd Akin moment of his very own Thursday
night when he said “advances in science and technology” have eliminated
risks for pregnant mothers and therefore done away with the need for
“There’s no such exception as life of the mother,” Walsh said after a debate
with Democratic challenger Tammy Duckworth in Chicago. “And as far as
health of the mother, same thing. With advances in science and
technology, health of the mother has become a tool for abortions any
time, under any reason.”
Asked if he believes there is never a medical need to perform an abortion to save a mother’s life, Walsh said, “Absolutely.”
Well, Walsh always has been an absolutist but he doesn’t say *what* medical procedures have rendered child birth so safe that nobody dies giving birth any more. The reason he doesn’t say is that his theory is piffle. poppycock and a variety of other words starting with the letter P. He’s also a prick, putz and poopheaded pustule.
The other thing that bothers me is that he’s filched a perfectly good name from rock icon Joe Walsh. I bet that teabgagger Joe Walsh cannot play slide guitar and lacks the sort of diplomatic skills required to deal with Glenn Frey and Don Henley’s gynormous egos. In fact, if the Real Joe Walsh wasn’t a legendary goofball and former druggie, he’d be a much better Congressman than this dumb ass fucker, who is *obviously* the Other Joe Walsh.
