"Armey to Walsh: ‘I’m so damn glad that you can never be my wife.’"
Today on MSNBC’s Hardball, Salon editor-in-chief Joan Walsh and former Republican House majority leader Dick Armey engaged in a heated exchange on Rush Limbaugh and his recent controversial comments. Walsh repeatedly condemned Limbaugh’s remarks, saying that conservatives should stand up to the hate radio host. Toward the end, the conversation turned sexist when Armey said he was glad he wasn’t married to Walsh:
ARMEY: I’m so damn glad that you can never be my wife because I surely wouldn’t have to listen to that prattle from you every day.
WALSH: Boy, that makes two of us sir. That was really an outstanding comment.
ARMEY: That’s what I’m talking about — she’s making a political malarkey here.
