In a CNN interview yesterday, Congressman Joe Walsh decided that his Democratic opponent, an Iraq War veteran who lost both of her legs in an RPG attack, is indeed a "hero" after all. But Walsh continues to prefer military vets who "don't throw it in your face," such as John McCain. Frankly, who even knew John McCain was a veteran? Nobody.
