I’d like to thank Katie Pavlich (“infanticide”), Dan Gainor (“aspiring baby killer”), and Erick Erickson and the editors of NRO (“abortion Barbie”) for reminding me to contribute to Wendy Davis’s campaign for Governor of Texas. It’s not true that we love her (only) for the enemies that she has made – she has plenty of sterling qualities of her own – but the identity of those enemies, and their unspeakable viciousness, do add an extra reason to show her some love.
This is not an easy race to win. But it’s not hopeless, especially if anger over the shutdown and immigration politics makes the 2014 electorate look more like a Presidential-year electorate. And anything that can speed the pace at which Texas turns purple is worth trying.
