Dick Armey Displays Republican Sexism on Hardball With Joan Walsh of Salon.com

The former GOP leader lets his loose lips fly at Joan Walsh on MSNBC's Hardball.


By Bonnie Erbe, Thomas Jefferson Street blog.

Not sure what Joan Walsh said to prompt former (thank god) U.S. Rep. Dick Armey to retort as follows. But whatever it was, Armey's loose lips have shown him to be the chauvinist he and many of his old guard GOP buddies are. In fact, Armey will now be seen as the GOP's "aren't we out of it?" poster child. As the party reforms after its trouncing at the polls in November, it should consult Armey on what it needs to do, and then do the complete opposite.

Quotes US News:

"I am so damn glad that you could never be my wife, 'cause I surely wouldn't have to listen to that prattle from you every day."
