Given his inclination to blurt outrageous statements like "We may have to shed blood every couple hundred years to preserve our freedoms," talk radio is a natural fit for ex-Congressman Joe Walsh.

Just a day before Feder reported the deal, Wash subbed in for John Howell on the station's "Big John & Amy" morning show, according to NBC Chicago.

Walsh, who lost a bruising Nov. re-election battle to Democrat Tammy Duckworth, confirmed to the Daily Herald Tuesday that WIND had indeed approached him. The Tea Party favorite told the suburban daily he's "looking at a number of different options. ... We'll see."

WIND's parent company Salem Media describes itself as emphasizing "Christian and family-themed content and conservative values." Should Walsh join the WIND lineup, he'll have idealogical bedfellows in current WIND talk show hosts Glenn Beck and frequent Rush Limbaugh guest host Michael Medved.
