Music is a big part of political conventions and campaigns. Politicians pick songs that they think fit their image and make them seem hip.

Joe Walsh vs Joe Walsh: A battle of two not so ordinary Joe's

Meet Joe Walsh the politician. He was elected to the House of Representatives in 2010. A member of the Tea Party, his views  were so far to the right that he makes Ted Cruz look like a liberal. He only served two years in the House before voters wised up, but not before facing ethics violations. He also accused Tammy Duckworth of using her military service to her advantage in the 2012 House race. Duckworth lost both legs in the Iraq War.
There are two famous or infamous people named Joe Walsh. One’s a politician/radio talk show host. The other is a rock musician. Which one would you want to hang out with? Let’s compare them in a gallery.   Walsh was a longtime member of the Eagles. Here’s a gallery from earlier this year of some... Read more »
