Skip to comments.The Heroism of Wendy Davis. ... Ann Coulter
Posted on 01/22/2014 3:32:47 PM PST by Rummyfan
Wendy Davis, the Texas state senator running for governor, became a liberal superhero last June when she filibustered a bill to prohibit abortions after 20 weeks. (This was the good filibuster, not that awful filibuster three months later by Ted Cruz -- that was just grandstanding.)
Apart from her enthusiasm for abortion (and you have to admit, abortion is really cool), the centerpiece of Davis' campaign is her life story. Also the fact that she's a progressive woman who doesn't look like Betty Friedan.
In a typical formulation, Time magazine said Davis was someone who could give the Democrats "'real people' credibility," based on "her own personal story -- an absent father, a sixth-grade-educated mother, a teen pregnancy, followed by life as a single mom in a mobile home, then community college and, at last, Harvard Law School."
The headlines capture the essence of Wendy-mania:
CNN: Wendy Davis: From Teen Mom to Harvard Law to Famous Filibuster
Bloomberg: Texas Filibuster Star Rose From Teen Mom to Harvard Law
The Independent (UK): Wendy Davis: Single Mother From Trailer Park Who Has Become Heroine of Pro-Choice Movement
Cosmopolitan: Find a Sugar Daddy to Put You Through Law School!
Actually, that last one I made up, but as we now know, it's more accurate than Davis' rags-to-riches life story.
The truth was gently revealed in the Dallas Morning News this week. Far from an attack, this was a puff-piece written by Wayne Slater, rabid partisan Democratic hack and co-author of the book, "Bush's Brain." (He is not an admirer of Bush's brain.) It would be like Sean Hannity breaking a scandal about Ted Cruz.

LOL! That first sentence...AWESOME!
First paragraph I mean LOL
Ann nailed this one. Of course, the truth is irrelevant to the kind of people who will vote for Davis. The reason that Dems routinely lie is that it works for them. And because they have no core values they are okay with that.
Yup, single mom who was a whore chasing sugar daddies, selling her woman parts to the highest bidder, lied about her putting herself through college, left her husband after he paid off her schooling, gave up her daughters to another man, bankrupted his 401K for herself. That’s the ticket Wendy - for a dim. Got all the blocks checked for a prime (d) candidate.
The woman has no core, no soul. Typical user Democrat.........and her lying is just a resume enhancement to her supporters. ‘By any means necessary’
Then again, it's too bad Wendy Davis is campaigning solely on the strength of her largely fabricated resume in the first place.
I think they are referred to as: FM Shoes
(just in case, M=me)
Ouch.. thats gotta hurt...(Davis)..
Davis seems to be a ______ (well you know)...
I heard locally that her ex also got custody of her first daughter. Don’t know if it’s true.
They must've had round heels.
Imagine if a conservative had said what she did, considering the circumstances.
I also heard that her “community college” included her last two years at Texas Christian University.
I just hope that even if there are Texans who are for whatever reason sympathetic to her abortion position, that at the very least they remember that as Texans that genuine family values and integrity should always come first and remember this come voting time.

Isn’t it amazing how feminist icons such as Wendy Davis and Hillary Clinton had to rely on men to accomplish anything in their lives?
“Hey — maybe Jeff Davis should run for governor! He’s the one who raised two kids, including a stepdaughter, while holding down a job and paying for his wife’s law school. There’s a hard-luck story!”
“Davis also said these attacks “won’t work, because my story is the story of millions of Texas women ...” Yes, for example, Anna Nicole Smith. Though at least Smith had the decency not to ask for a paid education.:
