    As usual, when I saw this cartoon I realised that I had missed this story. The Dallas Morning News was my father’s favourite paper, but I left Texas many years ago, and this is the first of their articles I’ve read since I left.

    I read the whole story. The woman is an incredible bold – faced liar. Makes it up as she goes.

    Nothing here that should disqualify her from politics though.

    She could be president some day…

    Since when did someone on the Progressive Left have to tell the truth? Hillary doesn’t have to. Hubby Bill didn’t until he got slapped down in federal court. Obama sure doesn’t and the same goes for his Minions of Ignorance. Why should Wendy Davis have to?

    Seriously? This is about when she got separated vs divorced? I got separated at 27 and formally divorced at 29, but if anybody asked me, I’d definitely say 27 – because that’s when it ended. And why is this an issue at all?

    Wendy Davis is a decent, intelligent human being. Unlike anything the right has to offer.

    As an actual Texan? There’s a lot that the national media has been ignoring about her little filibuster.
    []
    For example, the whole hoopla about tampons and other items being taken from bags by capitol security? What the media did not tell anyone was that they also confiscated feces and urine as well in addition to glitter and other items; turns out that there were Davis supporters who were looking to crash the special session by throwing things at people who disagreed with her.
    []
    As it is, Davis was reportedly not too knowledgeable about the bill she had even filibustered, nor did she care that she also killed three other bills (a highway bill, a juvenile justice bill, and another) by killing the abortion bill.
    []
    The fact that Planned Parenthood Texas basically responded to the law by saying “It’s not fair that you want to regulate our clinics like medical clinics! You can’t expect us to meet the same standards!” doesn’t help her case any.

    MSNBC carried the filibuster. And yes, MSNBC mentioned the latest “scandal,” but gave it some context that’s missing here. If that’s the best the GOP can come up with (compared to Rick Perry spitefully taking away Medicaid from tens of thousands of poor Texans) I’m not worried about Davis.

    Actually most legislatures will do this. It’s fairly common for politicians to try to tack on troubled bills to more popular ones in hopes of getting them passed.

    Change the style of shoes and the figure and you could be depicting St. Ronny the Raygun.

    All the decent people called. They asked me to flag your comment for profanity.

    This issue is really sad. Darren Blair is right: Davis’ supporters appear to have been trying to smuggle in items that they could throw. On the other hand, the ‘scandal’ is at best minor, at worst inflated. But since this issue ties into abortion, both sides will abandon all courtesy and common sense. It’s a shame.

    Oklahoma has a one bill, one subject requirement. Seems the Republicans, lately, cannot understand how that works and get po’ed when courts invalidated them for including more than one item.

    What’s up Doc. We have seen how unbiased you are and how fact-full you are.
    I have many friends and family in Dallas and Texas in general. Seems you have made up your own facts again.
