See Joe Walsh, see Joe Walsh in the Sun-Times

Rep. Joe Walsh, subject of today’s page-one screamer,

Tea Party Rep. Joe Walsh sued for $100,000 in child support

Freshman U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh, a tax-bashing Tea Party champion who sharply lectures President Barack Obama and other Democrats on fiscal responsibility, owes more than

has been the man Sun-Times editors love to hate for a week now, ever since he got up close and personal with the self-described Compromiser-in-Chief in the debt-ceiling fight:

* Debt talks: Dick Durbin a voice of reason; Joe Walsh a screamer
WASHINGTON In the ongoing deficit negotiations, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) is at all the White House meetings and is one of the bipartisan Gang

* Editorial: Joe Walsh has a loud voice, but nothing to say Joe Walsh is whats wrong with Washington.

The Republican freshman congressman from Chicagos northwest suburbs is the poster child for the uncompromising and vitriolic style

I didn’t realize Walsh was that effective. Or that he encapsulated what’s wrong with Washington. A Chicago newspaper reader learns something new every day.

“Hit piece”? How dare he say that?

Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) defends himself:

WASHINGTON Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) on Thursday said a Chicago Sun-Times article about his ex-wife suing him for back child support was a hit piece but that his financial troubles do not erode his credibility as an outspoken opponent of government spending in the congressional debate on raising the debt ceiling.

Yes. Only when he gets his personal house in order is he credible as opponent of government spending. He should leave public policy alone or lower his profile until he is pure as the driven snow.
