Joe Walsh speaking on YouTube
Certainly you will remember former teabagger Illinois Congressman Joe Walsh.  He was the charming deadbeat dad who lost his seat to Tammy Duckworth in 2012. He went on to outstanding greatness as just another teaparty loudmouth on Chicago's talk station AM-560, The Answer, a right wing noise machine.

During a rant about the R*dskin's tonight, he decided to use some ugly racial epithets and got his ass booted from his own program. He took to Twitter to bemoan the outrage that he can't call people racist names without there being repercussions.

Poor Joe. What is this world coming to when you can't spout ugly racial slurs without your employer getting nervous and giving you the hook. No word if this is a temporary or permanent removal. Let's hope it's the latter.

By the way, Joe. It is my hope that soon enough using the word R*dskin will get you booted off the air for being equally racist.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
