Left-Wing Politico says Wendy “Abortion Barbie” Davis is “the most judged woman in America.” And all the criticism leveled at her for lying about her past, and for ditching her husband and kids after they paid for her law degree is just dirty pool. No man, they insist, would ever be criticized for marrying for money (cough… John Kerry, cough John McCain) or for abandoning his kids.
So, the left is whining about the criticism Abortion Barbie has gotten for her lies and dissembling? Really? As far as I know, David Letterman hasn’t made rape jokes about Wendy Davis’s daughters ro called her a “slutty flight attendant,” Sandra Bernhardt hasn’t called for her to be gang raped, Bill Maher hasn’t directed crude, anatomical epithets at her, and Tina Fey hasn’t won a jillion awards for portraying her as an airhead.
For that matter, Ann Romney was trashed for treating her Multiple Sclerosis with horse therapy. And Mitt Romney was trashed when his family adopted a Black grandchild.
But to the Left Wing Politico, pointing out when a Democrat woman is lying, or when her campaign staff is caught mocking her opponent’s physical disability and advocating voter fraud, is the worst form of sexism.
So, are we ready for Hillary to whine constantly that any and all criticism of her policies, failures, and lies is because she’s a woman.
Update: Wendy Davis’s supporters in the “Reality-Based Community” are now claiming her opponent, Greg Abbott, isn’t actually Handicapped. (You know, just like Trig Palin isn’t really Sarah Palin’s baby.) The theory is that Greg Abbott has been using a wheelchair since 1984 as part of his master plan to run for governor in 2014.
