Skip to comments.Wendy Davis gains nothing from engaging Bristol Palin on the subject of responsible motherhood

Wendy Davis needs to remember one important thing: She is running for governor of Texas, and for now, her focus needs to be on the Democratic primary. Period. Which means she doesnt have to answer to Rush Limbaugh or any other GOP commentator on the national stage. She is not vying for Rushs vote, nor is she going to win over the kinds of Texas voters who listen regularly to Rush Limbaugh. So who cares what he thinks?
Doubly so for Bristol Palin. The daughter of embarrassingly disastrous GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has zero political insights that are worth anyones time. None. Her only claim to fame is that she emerged pregnant and unmarried just as her mom was chosen as John McCains running mate. Bristol got her own reality show, which also was a disaster. She was on Dancing with the Stars.
But because Bristol blogged last week about Wendy Davis, drawing comparisons between their incomparable experiences with single motherhood, Bristol has managed to draw Wendy Davis onto todays front page of The New York Times. (Bristols blog item came up in a video interview, and Davis responded to the interviewers question, thereby giving Bristol undeserved traction.) Once again, the nation is talking about Daviss imprecise personal history. And yet, nobody seems to have anything new or insightful to say. Its all the same rehash....

"...embarrassingly disastrous GOP vice presidential candidate..." Do you realize how badly John McCain would've lost without her?
Who is her primary competition?
Is she a lock for the D ballot or just a media dream?
So Britol Palin was irresponsible? Because she didn’t abort her baby? Because the father was a douchey jackass who mocked her family?
Can we talk about the irresponsible actions of Barack Hussein Obama’s mama?
She was only a “disaster” because they were able to make fun of her like junior high children and get away with it. This was so because more than half the voting public has this same mentality.
His advice is actually good. Fortunately, these libs are too dumb to take it. They can’t resist engaging Limbaugh, even though doing so will puzzle and alienate swing voters.
Misogynists and anti-liberty feminazis engaging in a catty beat down of the Palins.
The REAL War on Women.
Wendy for no reason attacked Bristol.
She made her life story (false as it was) the talking point of her campaign.
She identifies with single mamas (although she thinks more should be aborting their kids, in the third trimester).
But because Bristol blogged last week about Wendy Davis, drawing comparisons between their incomparable experiences with single motherhood,
Really??? Bristol Palin was a single teenage mom just as Davis claimed to be. Oh well haters got to hate.
Because it always gets laughs when Jon Stewart and David Letterman do it.
The left trashes her because they know that Sarah was the only one in that disaster of a campaign that actually wanted to WiN..the rest of them tanked it so that Obama could win..that is what they wanted from the start..the left just can’t stand the fact that five years later Sarah lives in their commie heads rent free
Oh, I somewhat agree with his advice. You almost never “punch down” in a situation like this, it makes you look small and petty. Bristol is a private citizen, like most of the rest of us. Now if Gov. Palin had commented, she might be well-advised to reply. I don’t see State Senator Davis replying to the thousands of other bloggers who are commenting, so why push back on Miss Palin? Trolling for contributions using the Palin name?
Remember that for a while the 2008 race turned into an Obama against Palin fight, Obama’s advisers could not get him to quit engaging and responding to the vice presidential candidate.
The one who was struggling to drag McCain across the finish line, to victory.
She has Bristol write about Davis, and Davis stupidly fell for it and responded and came off as amateurish and unprepared to be elected to the town water board, much less Governor of the biggest red state in the U.S.
And Bristol is her own woman. She's 23, so it's not like she's some kid posting on MySpace, and Gov. Palin can completely pop the popcorn and watch Davis go down in flames without posting from her powerful Facebook platform.
Wendy Davis is nothing but a useful idiot, a foot soldier for the leftist Battleground Texas folks marching on orders from Obama/OFA/DNC to desperately try and turn Texas blue.
It is crazy for a politician to start attacking private citizens for their opinions in a blog
"I'm Todd Robberson, and I won a Pulitzer Prize because I'm a jerk!"
I was planning to sit that election out, but I voted for the senile senator because Palin was on the ticket.
This writer sounds so b*tchy.
She is simply a goldbricking liar.
