Talk about the political becoming personal . . .
On this evening's Hardball, Dick Armey told Joan Walsh:
"I'm 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."
The former Republican representative from Texas had been wrangling with Salon editor Walsh over the politics of the stimulus package and the role Rush Limbaugh has been playing, when things got out of hand . . . [H/t reader JF.]

Probably not having dinner together ping to Today show list.
Hilarious. It was rude, but funny. Shouldnt be taken so serious. Geez. She was getting her panties in a wad.
Classic. Thanks for the video. I missed it. Just sent you a PM a few minutes ago regarding something else on the same program.
Armey’s gotten a lot punchier in his old age. Too bad we couldn’t get that out of him back in the 90’s.
Libbies have no sense of humor unless it’s something totally foul coming from Whoopie Goldberg or some such.
From the picture two posts up, it looks like she was indeed experiencing the first moment of panty-wadding.
Lady Astor: “If you were my husband, I would poison your tea.”
Churchill: “And if I were your husband, I would drink it.”
I have a leftist friend for whom that line would be very appropriate!
No man should ever have to be married to her, but maybe Janet Reno or Madeline Albright would do just fine.......
“If you were my husband, I would feed you poison.”
“And if you were my wife, madam, I would take it.”
LOL! Funny then and this is funny now.
It reminds me of the Churchill quote:
‘If I was your wife Sir, I’d poison you! Madam, if you were my wife, I’d let you!’
Great minds think alike...hehe. See my post concerning Churchill.
That picture is classic. the absolute OWRST you can do is laugh at liberals, just looking at the woman’s face is proof of that.
I can undertand where he’s coming from.
Furthermore, Walsh is just wrong about this. The pubbies didn't stop the RATS during the last two years and Bush pushed the policies of Caligula just not as severely.
There is no way the pubbies can stop anything now. They are not holding up this legislation. The only thing is that the RATS want the pubbies to go along with this so when it fails, and it will, they can spread the blame.
I see there are Churchill fans here...
Yes, but USFriend has us both beat. LOL!
It appears that most have already summoned Churchill, as did I.
He is often quoted as being one who’s retorts were polite but meaningful.
If a democrap had said it to a republican it would have been considered JUST SO HILARIOUS!!
Jock strap. She's a liberal.
Prattle, prattle, here comes the cattle.
That’s just old Dick in his own inimitable style. Remember when he made the remark if he had done what Clinton had done, he’d be dead on the floor, and his wife would be saying, “How do I reload this thing?”
No you don't. All you care about is raw power.
We need to form an active 1994 GOP alumni division to tell these current Reps how its done. ..or should have done this 4 years ago.
A lot of old guys (but certainly not all) are like that. Screw it, they say. Who cares what anyone thinks about me anymore? I know how they feel.
Young guys still have a future to think about so they can be very PC even when they don't want to.
“WALSH: I actually care about social justice.”
Just another word for socialism.
Okay...this seemed to sum up his feelings about her...
There is that phrase again....”social justice”. Can someone tell me what that means please?
.......Can someone tell me what that means please?.....
Rob those who work and succeed, pay off those who are lazy and fail
A friend who knows him personally swears that he didn't change during the 90’s. Perhaps his public appearances and his TV appearances were so clipped by the cameras that we didn't see the real Armey.
Glad to see the guy who lived on such a tight budget, during his first terms in DC, that lived in his office and cut his own hair in a mirror.
I truly hope that Dick Armey is back.
Well there is a marriage were there are two political views, James Carville and Mary Mattlin.
You are so right. I’ve wondered about them. How could she put up with him? Sort of like if you had to be married to Alan Colmes. You’d want to strangle him if you could ever stop laughing at his absurdities.
I think all the republicans we elect get infected by the RINO virus. It attacks them as soon as they cross into the Beltway. When they leave the Beltway, the virus wears off and they begin spouting conservatism to their constituents.
It’s a virus and they’re all sick with it. It doesn’t affect RATS because they’re sick anyway.
It becomes too insular, and one only hears echos of groupthink.
Move HUD out of DC to North Dakota. They could use the real estate activity, and rates are much lower than in DC.
Move the Dept of Education to Wyoming. Different way of thinking than in the Beltway.
Economic misery spread around equally.
Her self-righteousness is suffocating.
I got a chuckle out of Armey though.
It means “what’s mine is mine and what’s yours is mine too”
Jailed For An Insult?
