Abortion Barbie can’t seem to stay away from all sorts of controversy these days. When she’s not saying utterly stupid things such as, “My education plan is dynamic and will take on ideas as a ship takes on water” (somebody please get her a copy of the Titanic so she can see how that ends)… or “Greg Abbott should walk a day in my shoes!” (Um, yes, he’s in a wheelchair) she’s having to also answer for the blatant lies that have been perpetuated for years during her different political runs. No kidding, she is beginning to make Joe Biden look like a rocket scientist. My sincerest apologies to all of the rocket scientists.
She’s proving to be great material for SNL but there seems to be some truth behind the old “birds of a feather”…”know them by their friends” adage. Battleground Texas, the group that Wendy Davis calls her “secret weapon,” has been caught on tape by James O’Keefe saying the most galling things about Attorney General, Greg Abbott. Abbott was in a freak accident at age 26 that left him partially paralyzed and in a wheelchair. Apparently, those with Battleground Texas thinks that it is hilarious and gives them the upper hand in the race. I mean, what Texan would vote for someone in a wheelchair…Right? Equally disturbing are the not-so-surprising talk of forging signatures for an election. From O’Keefe:
We caught Davis supporters and Battleground Texas staff on tape making crude statement such as “isn’t that amazing to think of? He’s in a wheelchair and we want to stand with Wendy?”
Even more disturbing was an election official who when asked about forging signatures covered her ears and then went on to admit, “People do that all the time.” A Battleground Texas volunteer then added, “I don’t think it’s legal but I didn’t hear you say that.”
I’m thinking most Texans will be just fine with using some taxpayer dollars to install the ramps that will be needed in the Governor’s mansion very soon. And…Wendy can take a jog in those pink tennis shoes right over to the local comedy club to see if they have a gig open.
