Because even Frightwingers can only stomach so much.
The woman he ran against, one Tammy Duckworth, lost both legs while serving in Iraq. She was a helicopter pilot and her chopper was hit by an RPG.
Joe Walsh never saw fit to serve. Too busy avoiding paying his child support, no doubt. Full disclosure: neither did I serve in the military. But I don't question the heroism of people who put themselves in harm's way for the benefit of others.

Your stupid point was an accusation of only republican gerrymanding. As usual, your stupid claim is mired by the fact she is a blue dog democrat...and doesn't go along with many nobama policies. Of the 10 Iraqi/Afghan vets elected, 8 were republican.

I did serve in the US Army and have seen the horror of your socialist ideals across barbed wire fences..........fk off.

I don't agree with many of Obama policies.
However.
The only reason the House held as many Frightwing seats as it did was through gerrymandering.
That's how you get thrashed in the popular vote and still win.
Too much time in a tank addled your brain, but thanks for the service.

Furthermore, my reply to your post was simply that Joe Walsh was a miserable amoral douchebag.

Gerrymandering stole many elections this year in california and illinois....you reply still suggests it's only done by republicans and you're still wrong.

I had thought you couldn't get any more partisanly blind. My conclusion was premature.
