…a virtual unknown pulls a political stunt and all of a sudden, we have this:
Wendy Davis for Texas governor in 2014?
And all I have to say is, PLEASE Democrats, make this happen. Run Wendy Davis for governor, I beg of you. Davis was by and large a nobody before her little stunt, and even after the media made sure everyone in Texas and everywhere else knew her name, Rick Perry was still beating her in the polls before he decided he wasn’t going to run for reelection. And to hear some people tell it, Rick Perry is one of the least popular Republicans in the country, never mind the state of Texas. If the Dems really are dumb enough to run Wendy Davis, the Republican candidate is going to win so handily it’s going to make the 2010 gubernatorial election look like the 2000 presidential election in comparison. Really…
“A lot of people are asking me that question lately as you can imagine,” Davis said in response to an audience question regarding her gubernatorial ambitions at a National Press Club luncheon Monday.
I wonder if the name Pauline Kael means anything to her.
