Wendy Davis, Elizabeth Warren prove poor fits as feminist leaders
Pittsburgh Post Gazette ^ | January 24, 2014 | Jack Kelley

Posted on 01/25/2014 7:09:20 AM PST by Cincinatus' Wife

Wendy Davis and Elizabeth Warren are feminist heroines, which indicates feminists these days don’t expect much from their heroines.

Ms. Davis, a state senator in Texas, has parlayed the attention the national news media lavished upon her 11-hour filibuster against a bill to forbid abortions after 20 weeks into a campaign for governor.

She could give 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,” gushed Time magazine....

....Unlike Time and NBC,Wayne Slater of the Dallas Morning News checked out the claims Ms. Davis made in her campaign biography. He found a few discrepancies.

....“Uh-oh, suddenly, this isn’t turning into the kind of story we want to tell our children,”said Dallas Morning News editorial writer Tod Robberson, who had hoped “Texas finally had a viable Democratic candidate.”......

.....Before her election to the Senate from Massachusetts in 2012, Elizabeth Warren was famous mostly for obtaining appointments to prestigious law school faculties by claiming, falsely, she was part Cherokee.

Rutgers University Law Professor Philip Shuchman accused Ms. Warren and two co-authors of “repeated instances of scientific misconduct” in a 1989 book that claimed—falsely—that medical bills are the cause of most personal bankruptcies.

...... Ms. Warren had the good fortune (or the presence of mind) to seek office in Massachusetts, where customarily Democrats win.

Aside from embellishing her life story, Ms. Davis is known best for her fervent support for abortion. But the bill she filibustered ultimately passed the state senate, 19-11, the state house, 98-49. ...

And in Texas, it takes more to be a feminist heroine than to go through Harvard law on a man’s dime while he takes care of the kids.

Wendy Davis is Texas toast. She should move to Massachusetts.

For Democrat voters, it’s far more about what the candidate can do for them rather than the personal quality of the candidate.

That’s why you see candidates like McAwful and DiBlasio get voted in by the entitlement army.

I’m pretty much convinced Axlegrease, Gibbs, and Plouffy could get Charles Manson elected POTUS in 2016 if they wanted to.

The Democrat party responds.....

“Yes, we know Paleface Lizzy Warren and Stinky Sneaker Wendy Davis are liars, but we’re pretty sure that they are thieves, too, and that’s what counts. We do have our standards.”

Actually, the Fake Indian would not have been elected Senator—even in Massachusetts—without millions of dollars from Hollywood and other out-of-state donors.

Their goal—as with all Dims—was to swamp out Scott Brown at all costs!!!!

PHOOEY!!!!

God hates liars, as numerous passages in the Bible teach.
Among them:
Proverbs 6:16: “ There are six things the Lord hates....a proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false witness who speaks lies, and one who sows discord among brethren.”

Revelation 21:7-8, “He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

Is there much talk on the street about the Gov. race or is it sort of on the
back burner. The primary is in 38 days so the interest ought to be coming forth.

In Massachusetts, even a dog could run as a progressive, and the voters there would gladly vote for it. Actually that would be a good experiment to try. Democrats have no standards,as long as the candidate is reciting the party talking points enthusiastically.

Wendy’s path to high achievement was with her legs spread.

If she was an unattractive woman, she would likely still be with the husband she committed adultery against. She was empowered by her ...... never mind.

A dog or even a skunk would be far better than Warren or Davis.

That’s one reason I am not happy about this cold winter. I don’t want them moving down here.

They screw up their states and then want to move down here.

Name a “feminist leader” who’s a “good fit”, (meaning electorally appealing to normal people), I can’t think of any.

Not a one; they are all damaged lifeforms (in more ways than one).
