Wendy Davis strode onto the floor of the Texas Senate chamber on Tuesday in rouge-red running shoes, and came off it early Wednesday morning as the Democratic Partyís newest star.

During 13 hours in between, the little-known legislator from Fort Worth delivered a filibuster that electrified social media and stopped passage of one of the nationís toughest set of abortion restrictions in the waning hours of a special session.

I figured she would be a Jabba the Mikulski clone but I was wrong

Only in the sick world of the Democrats is an unapologetic advocate for mass-infanticide a “star.”

If it were Sarah Palin, the media skanks would have not described a hero.

Short lived fame. There will be another session. And her anti-democracy pals who shouted during the vote to delay it after the filibuster ended should be jailed.

They should’ve all been arrested as they left. Imagine if tea partiers did the same thing.

This gal supports babies being killed before they are born,

Sarah Palin supports babies being protected before they are born.

‘nuff said!

Translation: They have a new high priestess of baby sacrifice. The dark power's they worship are surely pleased...

Most of which were from out of State, I might add.

She broke the senate rules and had a bunch of people in the gallery that caused the vote to be late. Typical dim behavior that prevented the democratic process to be completed. Shout at the top of your lungs to silence your opponents.

Sad to hear that Fort Worth has become a Liberal hellhole.

I'm sure I read last week that she is the daughter of former Governor Ann Richards. In a big writeup in today's Dallas Morning News there is no mention of this. It just says she went to work at 14 to help support her single mother, and that at 19 she was a divorced single mom herself, and that she was first in her family to graduate from college. So, did Governor Richards not have a college degree? I'm confused.

First line on her resume: Supports the murder of infants, especially those older than 20 weeks in the womb (It’s the right to choose murder over life).

She’s gerrymandered into a district filled with minorities and other assorted brain donors. Other voting districts in Fort Worth are conservative.

Interesting segment on Fox & Friends this morning. Young boy relates near-death experience that includes meeting with his sister who died in a miscarriage. He was between 3 and 4-yrs old and his parents never mentioned to him (and why would they at that age) that his mother had a miscarriage. Certainly provides another reason to prevent killing of the unborn.

Boy shares stories from his journey to heaven
