Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) could be Obama's secret weapon

Yeah, I know. But I like this Joe Walsh.
I have a campaign idea for President Obama's team, and I think it's a great one. They should follow Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) around with a camera and record whatever he says. Just wait until Walsh says something offensive and stupid, which won't take long, and hit the record button. They should then run the clips in a continuos loop in those communities Walsh has offended. 

Here's Joe's latest (with thanks to Daily Kos):

We have so many people now dependent upon government. So many people want handouts. The Democratic Party promises groups of people everything. They want the Hispanic vote. They want the Hispanics to be dependent upon government, just like they got African Americans dependent upon government. That's their game. Jesse Jackson would be out of work if they weren't dependent upon government. There'd be no work for him.

Perhaps it's true that Barack Obama needs to energize core constituencies that came out in droves in 2008. But, with Walsh's help, that could be a lot easier.

And that's no lie.
