Tuesday evening, the AP published a story in which Texas Democrat governor candidate Wendy Davis attempted to change the subject from her discrepancies in her origins story. CNN, by the way, has joined those in media who regard Davis’ untruths as significant.

Back to Davis. In an attempt to move off her bio, the bio which up to now has been a centerpiece of her campaign, she has begun lashing out at the Abbott campaign while her online allies are attacking the political reporter, Wayne Slater of the Dallas Morning News, who wrote the article questioning her background. Neither is likely to have any positive effect for her campaign. Davis told AP in Tuesday’s interview that as governor she would support an expansion of concealed carry rights in Texas.

While Democrats elsewhere have called for tighter gun laws, Davis said she owns a handgun for protection, plans to obtain a concealed handgun license and supports legislation that allows workers to keep guns in their vehicles at work.

It’s a good idea. It’s one that’s likely to garner broad support in the legislature. In fact, it already did.

The 82nd session of the Texas legislature took up Senate Bill 321 beginning in January 2011. That Republican-sponsored bill codifies “an employee’s transportation and storage of certain firearms or ammunition while on certain property owned or controlled by the employee’s employer.” After going through the usual sausage-making that goes on in Austin, it passed, was sent to Gov. Rick Perry, and he signed it on June 17, 2011. It went into effect September 1 of that year and has been the law ever since.

State Sen. Wendy Davis voted for the bill, joining a solid bipartisan majority. It’s hard to see why she is touting this as a new idea now, unless she is proposing some expansion that she has yet to detail for the 84th session next year. That’s possible, as it’s exactly how she has approached her education policy.

She is the perfect pin up girl for the modern feminist, having a fun time in life.
If it means aborting or abandoning your children, having other people pay your bills and failing to honor your vows in marriage, she's your girl!

When that story came out, the talk-radio airwaves were abuzz.

And the calls where the person was the most outraged - were women!

She's toast. There is no fix for being viewed as "Evil X-wife" to guys, and "Conniving Skank" to women.

This woman is a dishonest, feckless idiot. I predict a successful run for the Presidency in 2016.

She sounds like a perfect political candidate - apparently she votes for bills without reading them, just like the big boys (girls?) in DC!

Abortion Barbie simply cannot fathom the degree to which she makes herself look stupid.
So she will continue to do so with total impunity from the MSM who holds her in the Highest Esteem.

WHAT AN AMATEUR
When she authors an autobiography written by someone else, calls her black grandmother a racist or claims she's descended from Native Americans, let's talk.

If she puts too many of those pink tennis shoes in her mouth, like she's
been doin', it'll be a joyride for Abbott. And an instructional commentary
on stoopid-politicians for the rest of us.

Planks of the Wendy Davis platform:

Killing babies is OK
Killing serial killers is not
Women should be self-reliant - once their husband has paid for their education

Have I missed anything?

Recall that soon after the pink shoes filibuster, Davis was hauled away to Democratic HQ Paradise. Obviously the only reason for that is orientation... well, brainwashing. On returning and announcing her candidacy for Gov, Davis became and IS the leading Democratic Party PAWN in the Donk program to turn Texas blue.

Don't make her candidacy more than it is. It is simply a name recognition, neophyte recruitment tool for future party plans. The entire debacle will be deemed a success as it will have launched that Democratic Party return to [questionable] significance in Texas. I expect to see her introduce a keynote at the Democratic convention sometime in the near future.

Enjoy

Don't take it lightly; they did turn Colorado Blue. If you haven't, read "The Blueprint."

Actually, she seems to be using John Edwards as a role model.
