Congressman Joe Walsh’s KKKlan robes must have been at the dry cleaners so he couldn’t wear his gear to this BBQ in his Illinois district to talk about the Tea Party’s role in this year’s election. (TPM):
“There’s something different on the ground, and I think it’s going to overtake us all again, think it’s going to overtake the political class. I think it’s going to respectfully pick this president up and pat him on the head and say, son, son, son, Mr. President, you were never ready to be president, now go home and work for somebody and find out how the real world works.”
Walsh said he was just “having fun” when he made the remarks.
Walsh said that “every time anybody criticizes [Obama], the racist card is thrown out.”
