Good to see he's getting his butt handed to him in the polls 52/39.

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 abortion exceptions.

“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.”

    The Right will always villify anyone who tells the truth. Listen to there amplifiers Limbaugh, Hannity, O'Reilly et al. They cannot discuss the issues with facts so they try to destroy our perseption of the messenger so we won't listen. Walsh is the worst kind of representitive as he will follow his own insane beliefs and not those of the people who sent him to Washington. If you're smart, you'll vote this moron out!

    And this guy is going to win re-election. What is wrong with the people in his district especially the women?

    And they call Biden "Crazy Joe!"  I guess this is Crazier Joe, or even Dangerous Joe.  He's so out of touch living in his bubble. DG

    Asking deadbeat dad Joe Walsh about a women's right to choose is like asking an arsonist if he likes fire.
