Joe Walsh and the India Independence day parade

Devon far away from the 8th but I suspect Walsh’s time in this parade was well spent.  The India Trib sure made a point of listing the absent Democrats.

As the floats marched past, Iftekhar Shareef, Keerthi Kumar Ravoori, Ajai Agnihotri, Minhaj Akhtar, and others introduced the sponsors of floats.  A special mention was made about McDonald’s. From his colorfully decorated float, US Congressman Joe Walsh jumped out, hopped on to the saluting stand and profusely thanked the FIA and the gathering for inviting him.  He congratulated Indian Americans for celebrating the 66th Independence Day of India.
