Tammy Duckworth on 'The Last Word' w/ Lawrence O'Donnell

Duckworth said, “He’s a very sexist kind of a guy. He’s called me ‘dear,’ offered to hold my hand, he’s grabbed me during debates, pokes me, and he was just saying that I was more concerned picking out the outfits that I’m going to wear rather than concentrating on the issues.”

It was a very ugly debate. Lots of yelling from the crowd on both sides during the debate. I left early.

I was hoping to just see him make a fool out of himself. I saw that and much more.

That said, there is NO WAY Tammy is gonna lose this election.

On the bright side, you can stick a fork in Walsh, he's done.
Really makes me wonder what his supporters see in him. IMO, the guy's unfit for office.

Walsh's followers remind me of the Paul-ites in the way they post his name everywhere, including public and shuttered property. I keep thinking I ought to map out the locations of Walsh signs around the neighborhood so after the election I can still know where the crackpots live. It could come in handy-- I was interested in making an offer on a larger house down the street earlier this year but it went too quickly. Now I see the people next door to it have Walsh signs on the lawn. I feel like I dodged a bullet there. Maybe literally.
