Abortion Barbie and the Say Anything Party

Jim Hacker: Nobody knows it’s not true. Press state­ments aren’t deliv­ered under oath.

Yes Prime Min­is­ter A Vic­tory for Democ­racy 1986

Do you remem­ber when Wendy Davis because a hero to the left when she stood tall and strong in favor of the a woman right to knock off her 20 week old baby in the womb? I do. She gain acco­lades nation­wide, prompt­ing piece like this from Joan Walsh in Salon:

Let’s take a moment to remem­ber what’s at stake here. Texas Democ­rats suc­ceeded in block­ing a lot of abor­tion restric­tions until Gov. Rick Perry called a spe­cial ses­sion to push them through. SB 5 offers a revolt­ing menu of bad pol­icy for women: a 20-​week abor­tion ban; new TRAP laws requir­ing abor­tion clin­ics to be cer­ti­fied as “ambu­la­tory surgery cen­ters,” which would close all but five of the 42 clin­ics open today, along with every clinic in West Texas. It would also require clinic doc­tors to have admit­ting priv­i­leges at hos­pi­tals and restrict the abor­tion drug RU-​486. Oppo­nents tried to block the bill’s pas­sage in the House last Thurs­day with a “people’s fil­i­buster,” but it ulti­mately passed.

I tuned in to Davis’ Sen­ate fil­i­buster after she’d been going about 10 hours Tues­day night, and I felt like I’d dis­cov­ered a base­ball game that was a no-​hitter going into the ninth inning. On YouTube, almost 40,000 peo­ple were already watch­ing; that bal­looned to more than 150,000 after Dewhurst stopped Davis’ cru­sade on bogus pro­ce­dural grounds. It was gripping.

Well Wendy Davis is run­ning for Gov­er­nor and with her man­u­fac­tured his­tory in tat­ters the Fem­i­nist Super­hero has decided it’s time to play the “what­ever works” card.

Davis said she could have sup­ported a bill that con­tained only a 20-​week ban, but the law’s restric­tions on clin­ics and doc­tors have greatly cur­tailed access to the pro­ce­dure in parts of Texas.

It was the least objec­tion­able,” she said. “I would have and could have voted to allow that to go through, if I felt like we had tightly defined the abil­ity for a woman and a doc­tor to be mak­ing this deci­sion together and not have the Leg­is­la­ture get too deep in the weeds of how we would describe when that was appropriate.”

Did I read that right, Abor­tion Bar­bie her­self the woman that has all fem­i­nism aflame declared she could sup­port a bill with a ban on abor­tions at 20 weeks?

I’d talk about what that dec­la­ra­tion says about her, but more inter­est­ing is what it says about her supporters.

Last year Wendy Davis despite her fil­i­buster that made her famous pro­claimed her­self “pro-​life”, Last week despite her pre­vi­ous attempt to restrict guns Wendy Davis pro­claimed her­self in favor of open carry, and now Abor­tion Bar­bie her­self is will­ing to say: 20 wk Abor­tion ban? I could sup­port that.

One would think pro­gres­sives who have show­ered her cam­paign with 11.2 mil­lion last quar­ter would be demand­ing refunds.

They will not.

First of all as is the basic prin­ci­ple of Marx­ism the ends jus­tify the means, if pro­claim­ing her­self pro-​life, pro-​gun and oppos­ing abor­tion after 20 weeks they’ll pay for a mil­lion robo­calls to the Texas elec­torate pro­claim­ing it.

But more impor­tantly as I’ve said in the past the left isn’t wor­ried about any of these pub­lic procla­ma­tions by Wendy Davis because they know she’s lying and in the reli­gion of lib­er­al­ism as opposed to the Judeo-​Christian cul­ture Truth is an optional extra.

Update: Twitchy is hav­ing a lot of fun with this as are a few oth­ers like the Lonely Con­ser­v­a­tive and National Review but the prize goes to Allah­pun­dit at Hotair:

At the rate we’re going, she’s going to end up fil­i­bus­ter­ing a pro-​choice bill before November.

Update 2: On a more seri­ous note:

What are Tex­ans sup­posed to make of Wendy Davis now?

Wendy Davis has either become thor­oughly con­fused on what she really believes, has no core beliefs and does not really know very much, or she is just try­ing to con­fuse all of Texas with all of these absurd, near daily posi­tion changes.

I see no rea­son why they can’t all be true.

Update 3: Legal Insur­rec­tion says not Bar­bie but Gumby:

In hind­sight, maybe the anaol­ogy to Bar­bie was inap­pro­pri­ate, but not for the sup­posed sex­ism rea­sons usu­ally argued.

Gumby may be a more appro­pri­ate anal­ogy, because on her per­sonal nar­ra­tive and key pol­icy posi­tions, Davis is infi­nitely flexible.

Yes Prime Minister A Victory for Democracy 1986

Do you remember when Wendy Davis because a hero to the left when she stood tall and strong in favor of the a woman right to knock off her 20 week old baby in the womb? I do. She gain accolades nationwide, prompting piece like this from Joan Walsh in Salon:

Let’s take a moment to remember what’s at stake here. Texas Democrats succeeded in blocking a lot of abortion restrictions until Gov. Rick Perry called a special session to push them through. SB 5 offers a revolting menu of bad policy for women: a 20-week abortion ban; new TRAP laws requiring abortion clinics to be certified as “ambulatory surgery centers,” which would close all but five of the 42 clinics open today, along with every clinic in West Texas. It would also require clinic doctors to have admitting privileges at hospitals and restrict the abortion drug RU-486. Opponents tried to block the bill’s passage in the House last Thursday with a “people’s filibuster,” but it ultimately passed.

I tuned in to Davis’ Senate filibuster after she’d been going about 10 hours Tuesday night, and I felt like I’d discovered a baseball game that was a no-hitter going into the ninth inning. On YouTube, almost 40,000 people were already watching; that ballooned to more than 150,000 after Dewhurst stopped Davis’ crusade on bogus procedural grounds. It was gripping.

Well Wendy Davis is running for Governor and with her manufactured history in tatters the Feminist Superhero has decided it’s time to play the “whatever works” card.

Davis said she could have supported a bill that contained only a 20-week ban, but the law’s restrictions on clinics and doctors have greatly curtailed access to the procedure in parts of Texas.

“It was the least objectionable,” she said. “I would have and could have voted to allow that to go through, if I felt like we had tightly defined the ability for a woman and a doctor to be making this decision together and not have the Legislature get too deep in the weeds of how we would describe when that was appropriate.”

Did I read that right, Abortion Barbie herself the woman that has all feminism aflame declared she could support a bill with a ban on abortions at 20 weeks?

I’d talk about what that declaration says about her, but more interesting is what it says about her supporters.

Last year Wendy Davis despite her filibuster that made her famous proclaimed herself “pro-life”, Last week despite her previous attempt to restrict guns Wendy Davis proclaimed herself in favor of open carry, and now Abortion Barbie herself is willing to say:  20 wk Abortion ban?   I could support that.

One would think progressives who have showered her campaign with 11.2 million last quarter would be demanding refunds.

They will not.

First of all as is the basic principle of Marxism the ends justify the means, if proclaiming herself pro-life, pro-gun and opposing abortion after 20 weeks they’ll pay for a million robocalls to the Texas electorate proclaiming it.

But more importantly as I’ve said in the past the left isn’t worried about any of these public proclamations by Wendy Davis because they know she’s lying and in the religion of liberalism as opposed to the Judeo-Christian culture Truth is an optional extra.

Update: Twitchy is having a lot of fun with this as are a few others like the Lonely Conservative and National Review but the prize goes to Allahpundit at Hotair:

At the rate we’re going, she’s going to end up filibustering a pro-choice bill before November.

Update 2: On a more serious note:

What are Texans supposed to make of Wendy Davis now?

Wendy Davis has either become thoroughly confused on what she really believes, has no core beliefs and does not really know very much, or she is just trying to confuse all of Texas with all of these absurd, near daily position changes.

I see no reason why they can’t all be true.

Update 3: Legal Insurrection says not Barbie but Gumby:

In hindsight, maybe the anaology to Barbie was inappropriate, but not for the supposed sexism reasons usually argued.

Gumby may be a more appropriate analogy, because on her personal narrative and key policy positions, Davis is infinitely flexible.

Sister Toldjah asks: Will the real Wendy Davis please stand up?
