Good morning, everyone! I had a lot of abysmal aperitifs lined up, but then Ms. Wendy done gone and swept the entire tray off the table. Good for her.
The Freeperati? Not so much.

Wendy Davis strode onto the floor of the Texas Senate chamber on Tuesday in rouge-red running shoes, and came off it early Wednesday morning as the Democratic Party’s newest star.
During 13 hours in between, the little-known legislator from Fort Worth delivered a filibuster that electrified social media and stopped passage of one of the nation’s toughest set of abortion restrictions in the waning hours of a special session...
You misspelled "Phyllis the Schlafly".
So - if the Senator puts on librarian glasses and fuck-me pumps, you'll vote for her? You guys redefine "shallow".
And you idiots still hoot and holler about "low information voters" (whenever you lose elections, of course), while thinking with your little heads?
If it were(sic) Sarah Palin, the media skanks would have not described a hero.
Short lived fame. There will be another session. And her anti-democracy pals who shouted during the vote to delay it after the filibuster ended should be jailed.
To: a fool in paradise
They should’ve all been arrested as they left. Imagine if tea partiers did the same thing.
To: SeekAndFindShe broke the senate rules and had a bunch of people in the gallery that caused the vote to be late. Typical dim behavior that prevented the democratic process to be completed. Shout at the top of your lungs to silence your opponents.

Translation: They have a new high priestess of baby sacrifice. The dark power's(sic) they worship are surely pleased...
To: denniswI never understand why these libs are so quick to kill off their future constituents.
To: Buckeye McFrogIn her district, only 65% speak English.
To: Dalberg-ActonNo, that is incorrect, 72% in her district speak only English, that's higher than the state as a whole, which is 65%.
In her district 28% speak other than English at home (ie. Spanish at home), of those, 20% speak English well, and 8% speak bad or no English.
So, basically her district is less hispanic than Texas as a whole, which makes sense, if her district was heavily hispanic, I don't think she would have done what she did. Hispanics are not very big supporters of abortion.
She looks a bit like actress Dyan Cannon on the downside

Late last night, while channel surfing, I thought I came across some late night porn channel... as here on my televison set there was this shorthaired lesbian-looking chick that really sounded like she was about to orgasm.
Turned out it was just Rachel Maddow on MSLSD gushing over her new hero.
I still suspect she had a vibrator running under the newsdesk.

Posted on Thursday, June 27, 2013 6:49:42 AM by SWAMPSNIPERA Congressional witness claiming to be a disabled veteran for a sprained ankle he allegedly sustained almost 30 years ago, walked into a human buzz saw when confronted with Rep. Tammy Duckworth, who lost both her legs and severely injured her right arm during her service in the Iraq War.
FACE PALM! What an unfortunate metaphor a dumb fuck.
To: SWAMPSNIPERI'm glad she ripped this phony a new one ...
OTOH, according to Wikipedia she's endorsed by the Brady Campaign and thinks citizens should be disarmed. According to Wikipedia, she's endorsed by EMILY's List, and thinks killing babies in utero is perfectly fine.
So IMO, LT COL Duckworth is an honourable veteran. REP Duckworth is a worthless POS.
