There’s a lot more to this story. Laura Ingalls is in for Bill O’Reilly and also interviewed Walsh. He claimed to have said she was a hero hundreds of times. I am not sure that Laura Ingalls fell for his bull.
I fall in on the side of Duckworth. Walsh is on the defensive. Plus, I heard the smug, dismissive snickering in his audience. I also argued with some local Republicans both in person and on blogs about McCain. Pretty stupid when I am defending their Republican nominee. I don’t care. Right is right. He was a hero. It doesn’t require us to vote for him but never diminish what John McCain did for his nation. He could have gone home. He didn’t. He stayed with his men and suffered greatly for it.
What has Walsh done for his country? He was dishonorable to Ms. Duckworth. Attack her ideas, not her persona.
