    According to the incessantly-flag-waving hard core right wing (territory which Walsh firmly occupies) it does.

    According to them, if you simply showed up for work at the office one day and got killed by a terrorist, you're also a hero.

    And if you're one of them (incessantly-flag-waving hard core right winger), you're a patriot. If you're on a right wing talk media show, you're also a Great American.

    Go figure

    Therefore, the irony is pungent on this one from Rep. Walsh.

    I saw this Walsh guy in an interview today. First they showed the clip. Not knowing much about this, I was not overly offended by what he said. Now that I am aware of more detail, my original take has been reversed. I don't think there's a bigger douche on the planet. In typical politician fashion, he eluded direct questions and never shut the **** up. He has zero class and no manners. How this guy ever got elected is beyond me.
    “No men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in, because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” Trump said... “‘Is everyone OK’? You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”
