…or, Looks like Greg Abbott just won the next Texas gubernatorial election:
Democrat Wendy Davis, a state senator who catapulted to national prominence this summer with a filibuster over access to abortion, is running for Texas governor….
Democratic state Rep. Rafael Anchia said Thursday that Davis is “straight out of central casting” as a bright and telegenic candidate.
“No disrespect to any of the other candidates, but the excitement that Wendy Davis has generated in this state has not been seen since Ann Richards,” Anchia said.
SNORT. Ann Richards. Everyone remembers how Ann Richards ended up, yes? She got beaten by that dumb, inarticulate cowboy from Crawford, George W. Bush.
And I read elsewhere that none other than Nancy Pelosi has said that Davis would have no problem raising the money she needs. Presumably that means that Pelosi and other national Democrats are going to be helping her. If that ends up happening, it’s going to be the kiss of death with a lot of Texas voters. I can just hear it now.
“Wendy Davis is the candidate of choice of the likes of Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and Michael Bloomberg! Lefty carpetbaggers, one and all!”
But even if that doesn’t happen, she’s still manifestly unqualified.
