I briefly linked this story concerning Wendy Davis yesterday in my diatribe about liberalism however it’s worth coming back to today because Wendy Davis is the perfect symbolism liberalism.
Consider liberalism is always spending other people’s money. They demand an increase in the minimum wage, which will of course be paid by employers, they demand increased spending which comes from taxes, and of course any tax cuts is money “given to the rich” as if other people’s money belongs to them to be used for their own political or personal benefit.
Cue Wendy Davis:
While they dated, Wendy Davis enrolled at Texas Christian University on an academic scholarship and a Pell Grant. After they married, when she was 24, they moved into a historic home in the Mistletoe Heights neighborhood of Fort Worth.
Jeff Davis paid for her final two years at TCU. “It was community resources. We paid for it together,” Wendy Davis said.
When she was accepted to Harvard Law School, Jeff Davis cashed in his 401(k) account and eventually took out a loan to pay for her final year there.
“I was making really good money then, well over six figures,” he said. “But when you’ve got someone at Harvard, you’ve got bills to pay, you’ve got two small kids. The economy itself was marginal. You do what you have to do, no big deal.”
The daughters, then 8 and 2, remained with Jeff Davis in Fort Worth while Wendy Davis was at Harvard.
But like many marriages it had issues but Wendy Davis stayed until….
Jeff Davis said that was right around the time the final payment on their Harvard Law School loan was due. “It was ironic,” he said. “I made the last payment, and it was the next day she left.”
Is that or is that not the perfect hero for liberalism & feminism? No wonder she puts in the big donor money.
It’s not a big deal, he’s likely part of the undeserving rich anyways.
I’ll give the last word to Eric on twitter:
“Complicated” “fuller story” “new details” “complex” I’m sure the media would have used those headlines for Sarah Palin too.

Nah, never, Sarah Palin didn’t go to an Ivy League University, thinks killing children is immoral rather than a sacrament and her successful marriage is not based on the retirement of student loans.
You don’t get to be a liberal media hero that way.
Update Exit Question: The 30 minutes before the death of Margaret Thatcher died Morning Joe was lionizing Hillary before it became all about what Thatcher had accomplished in life and I asked this question
Think for one second if Bill Clinton didn’t exist nobody would know who Hillary Clinton is, but how many people actually know Margaret Thatcher’s husband’s name? I’d have to look it up.
If Wendy Davis didn’t have a coincidentally rich husband to pay for her college would she have gone to Harvard and would anyone have ever heard of her?
Oh and the hashtag of the day at twitter #morefakethanwendydavis What was that line from yesterday’s post?
I have stated that modern liberalism & progressive is diametrically opposed to and actively targeting Christianity because it is all about truth and reality and rejecting truth and reality is the cornerstone that modern liberalism is built upon.
Update 2: Smitty is thinking the same
We’re looking at a young version of Hillary Clinton here. If you can’t understand one woman’s epic struggle to free herself from the cruel rows of shark-like teeth arrayed against her by the ravenous, insatiable Male Patriarchy, you’re clearly sexist.
and he has another tweet worth quoting:
Husband paid off her student loan and Wendy Davis left the next day? Sounds like money well spent.

He may not agree if he actually loved her.
Update 3: I must confess an ignorance of country music but Emily at Naked DC has no such problem:
Basically, every country music song that’s ever come out of Texas was written about Wendy Davis.
Karen at the Lonely Conservative thinks this might play in Massachusetts better than Texas. Please Please PLEASE Karen don’t give Ms. Davis any ideas!
Update 4: Stacy McCain explains why it’s worth making a case of a guaranteed Texas loser.
You get the general idea: We want to force feminists to defend the real Wendy Davis — a liar, a cheater, a selfish gold-digger — and to make them explain how her actual biography (and her dishonesty about her biography) is consistent with progressive ideals. And if they refuse to fight Wendy’s fights for her, we’ll then have a wonderful headline: “Feminists Abandon Democrat Wendy Davis.”
Heads we win, tails they lose.
Actually I think he really wants to drive Amanda Marcotte up a wall.
Update 5: OK you can’t beat this tweet via Glenn
Wendy Davis needs a man like a fish needs a rich bicycle that will pay its way through fish law school and take full custody of its spawn.

This morning when I woke up we had $12 toward our weekly paycheck.
After an excellent day we’ve made our pay week for the first time this year.
Unfortunately because we had three consecutive bad weeks that means we’re still behind for the Mortgage for January even if we make our full goal next week as well we’ll still be about fifty bucks shy.
But next week can wait till then, if two of you can spare 25 bucks today then we’ll be on track
and then we’ll worry about next week when it comes.
Remember if we can get 58 1/4 subscribers @ at $20 a month the bills will be paid every week. Help make sure this blog can fight without fear all year long.
