Joe Walsh criticizes Michelle Obama for attending Hadiya Pendleton funeral


Former Tea Party congressman Joe Walsh took to his Twitter account this morning to criticize first lady Michelle Obama for planning to attend the funeral of young Chicago shooting victim Hadiya Pendleton.

In his first of two tweets directed at the first lady, Walsh wrote, “‘Heartbroken’ Michelle Obama attending funeral of Hadiya Pendleton. I guess the other 553 murder victims didn’t break her heart. (1/2)”

Walsh’s follow-up tweet reads: “Most of the 553 Chicago murder victims in 2012 & 2013 were young black males. Is she attending this funeral to make a political point? (2/2)”

Fifteen-year-old Hadiya Pendleton was gunned down January 29th just a mile from the president’s Chicago home.

Pendleton was in Washington, D.C. a week before her death for President Barack Obama’s second inauguration. She performed in the parade with her high school band.

Pendleton’s story has received national coverage, and the young teen has become a symbol of Chicago gun violence, drawing national attention.

He's worse than a has-been. He is a never-was. Don't give this guy the time of day. I hope he doesn't start showing up on the cable news networks now - but he's a perfect candidate for Faux I guess.

25. He did actually have a benefit for Tammy Duckworth's campaign agains the other walsh


So now Rocker Walsh is trying to kick his namesake out of Congress. On Sunday night, at John Barleycorn in Schaumburg, the Eagles guitarist played a one-hour benefit concert for Walsh’s opponent, Tammy Duckworth. Walsh had performed at the Naperville Ribfest the night before, which was why he could fit this show into a tour to support Analog Man, his first solo album in 20 years, and bring his entire band.

“Tammy’s really unique to me,” Walsh said before the show. “I don’t normally get involved in politics. She’s someone who really cares. “It doesn’t matter who she’s running against. I would be here. She’s a breath of fresh air.”

Duckworth stood beside Walsh, wearing a black t-shirt with the name of Walsh’s first band, The James Gang. Later, Duckworth told Your Ward Room Blogger that her favorites Eagles song is “Hotel California.” That was a good answer, because Walsh joined the band on that album.

24. Yep. an asshat of the first order!

I just made the mistake of stopping by HuffPo and reading this and couldn't wait to see what the DUers have to say. What a total scumbag this sorry excuse for a human being! I still cannot fathom how he won in the first place! Does he get unemployment or any money for losing his job?

I had to laugh though...your comment reminded me of my daughter's first husband, somewhat affectionately known as Spacey Kacey, who actually wrote in the Eagles Joe Walsh for President sometime in the 1990s. Hadn't thought about that (or the ex for that matter) in a long time. I have no doubt he's still crazy after all these years!

23. Obviously, she can't go to every funeral. I think that she should

attend the funerals that are receiving a lot of media attention, as her presence adds even more pressure to those groups that are resisting change.
