Standing Tall – Texas Senator Wendy Davis

26 Jun

Another Progressive standing up for her beliefs -Texas Democrat Senator Wendy Davis staged an 11 hour filibuster last night bringing the Rethugly Senate to it’s knees in trying to pass the most restrictive anti-abortion legislation in the country…

So…When we’ve got folks with this kind of grit willing to stand up against Rethugly evil…

WTF can’t President Obama and Senator Harry Reid kick some Rethugly ass?

They can start by filling every single Federal Court Judicial vacancy, and dropping the nuclear option on Rethugly intransigence tying up the judicial appointments.

    The irony is it’s my understanding that the Texas Senator fought and won a judgement that her state’s redicstricting efforts last year or earlier this year was a violation of Section 4 – or Section 5, not sure which – of the Voting Rights Act. With the Court’s ruling a couple of days ago, Texas will be redistricting using the previous map – rendering the Senataor unelectable in the next election.

    This is insidious.

    The difference between Davis’ and Rand Paul’s filibusters were: one actually had a point and did something legislatively, and the other was mere grandstanding with really no point beyond, well, a little oiling up of small glands for a public autoerotic session, in anticipation of a 2016 meeting with Destiny.

      Don’t think Rand Paul is going to make it as a Presidential candidate. At the rate things are going, the Republicans better get used to saying President Hillary.

        Agreed, but that isn’t stopping him from trying to be all things to all people. The only bigger spread-wide whore than a politician is a corporation.
