Re-posted, in full, from TPM Café without comment:
OK, one comment: what an asshole Roskam is.
Peter Roskam, the GOP [IL – O6]candidate to succeed outgoing Rep. Henry Hyde, accused Dem opponent Tammy Duckworth of wanting to "cut and run" from Iraq during a debate a couple days ago. The use of this common pro-war talking-point in this case surprised some observers—not to mention Duckworth herself—because the veteran Duckworth lost both of her legs in Iraq. Duckworth's post-debate reply was rather straightforward: "I just could not believe he would say that to me."
Wait, another comment: Keep in mind that when you vote Republican you perpetuate this crap. The modern Republican party needs to be torn down and rebuild from the ground up after extensive de-Nazification and de-McCarthization, not to mention de-assholification. And we should ask the Wizard to provide them all with hearts.
OK, I’m done not commenting.
