This is absurd:
And on multiple levels.
One, this isn’t the 1940s or 1960s anymore. As much as Wendy Davis and Democrats want to scream about Republicans turning back the clock (and, really, if we’re talking social issues, how bad was American society in the 2000s because a lot of what they’re saying they deserve wasn’t an issue only 6 years ago…) they keep going into the wayback machine to try and find ways to attack Republicans that are just absolutely insulting to the intelligence of anyone with awareness above that of a rock.
But this hit is especially insane given that it’s made against white guy Greg Abbott, who’s wife could become the first LATINA first lady of Texas:
While Gov. Rick Perry is bowing out of Texas politics after an unprecedented three four-year terms in office, history could also be made if the Governor’s Mansion stays home to a Republican. If Attorney General Greg Abbott wins his campaign to succeed Perry — and he is favored to do so — his wife would become the first Latina to be the first lady of Texas.
Cecilia Phalen Abbott, 54, has been a regular at her husband’s side as he travels across the state for his campaign. He often talks about how Abbott, the granddaughter of Mexican immigrants, has helped him embrace the culture of a growing number of Texans…
UPDATE: Oh, it gets better! There’s a graphic!
Wendy has to be careful here. The way this looks, it appears as if she’s offending that Abbott WON’T defend such an offensive law.
