Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, June 20, 2014

Certainly you will remember former teabagger Illinois Congressman Joe Walsh. He was the charming deadbeat dad who lost his seat to Tammy Duckworth in 2012. He went on to outstanding greatness as just another teaparty loudmouth on Chicago's talk station AM-560, The Answer, a right wing noise machine.
During a rant about the R*dskin's tonight, he decided to use some ugly racial epithets and got his ass booted from his own program. He took to Twitter to bemoan the outrage that he can't call people racist names without there being repercussions.

Poor Joe. What is this world coming to when you can't spout ugly racial slurs without your employer getting nervous and giving you the hook. No word if this is a temporary or permanent removal. Let's hope it's the latter.

By the way, Joe. It is my hope that soon enough using the word R*dskin will get you booted off the air for being equally racist.

I thought this was going to be about the rocker. I'm glad to find good ol' Joe did not, at this time anyway, use racial slurs.

Favorite quote about Joe Walsh, from Glenn Frey: "He's a strange bunch of guys."

Same here. Recently watched the Eagles documentary, he came across as a pretty decent guy after he finally cleaned himself up.

Read his tweets. So, Walsh is fighting for his right to say n-----? Class act.

Last time I saw Joe (the singer) interviewed he said he had been clean from drugs and drinking for 20 years. I sure was glad to hear that. His latest stuff is pretty good, I'll fire up "Lucky that way" in a few minutes.
