TAMMY DUCKWORTH got some help in her campaign for Congress from the guy she’s running to unseat.

Joe Walsh is making the case for why we need more women in Congress every time he’s given the microphone.

Asked by reporters after the debate if he was saying that it’s never medically necessary to conduct an abortion to save the life of a mother, Walsh responded, “Absolutely.” “With modern technology and science, you can’t find one instance,” he said. “… There is no such exception as life of the mother, and as far as health of the mother, same thing.” [WGN Radio]

Women should just start running against all the Tea Party wingnuts, no matter what state they’re in. Women’s reproductive health and basic decency could beat every one of them or at the very least make them learn the hard way how stupid they sound.
