Lawrence O'Donnell Bans "Deadbeat Dad" Joe Walsh From Appearing On His Show


As anyone who follows cable news knows, Rep. Joe Walsh (Blowhard-IL) has done quite a job making a name for himself by coming on television and chastising President Obama for lying to the public, asking him if "he has no shame" and with bemoaning the debt that the United States has incurred (primarily due to Bush administration policies) being laid on the backs of his children -- one of the favorite Republican talking points du jour.

Well it appears the recent news that Karoli reported on here about Walsh's troubles with owing back child support was finally enough for MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell to say that Walsh was banned from appearing on his show again -- or at least until he finds out that he's made good with the obligations to his children.

My question is why has the media been giving this guy so much air time he doesn't deserve in the first place? Please do us all a favor Lawrence. Even if he does settle with his ex-wife, don't have him back on again. That said, I do hope the rest of the cable news shows would follow his lead here and spare us his rantings for now.
