The Washington Times ^ | June 28, 2013 | Cheryl K. Chumley

Posted on 06/28/2013 12:13:54 PM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks

The Democrat at the heart of the successful filibuster of a Texas bill to ban abortion after the 20-week pregnancy mark proved an above and beyond dedication to beating back the measure — she even wore a catheter.

Sen. Wendy Davis, 50, donned running shoes, a back brace and a urinary catheter in the walk up to her Tuesday filibuster that ultimately spanned 11 hours.

She should have worn one of those evasive ultrasound thingies that the baby killer crowd is so upset about.

She should talk to NASA about industrial strength DEPENDS, it’s what the astronauts use when they’ve had too much Tang or when they need to drive non-stop to stalk a lover.

The only reason this dishwater blond attention skunk succeeded in delaying the abortion bill was the abject ineptitude of TX Lt. Gov. Dewhurst, who couldn’t manage a Sunday School picnic, let alone a crowd of aging harpies who screamed for the killing of fully developed babies.

Thank goodness the TX TEA Party ran Sen. Cruz against this puts or he would be embarrassing us daily in D. C. Let’s hope Dewhurst can manage the second try at the abortion bills better. After all, when one has a 95-33 GOP majority, even this poor excuse for a leader should get the job done.

That is DEAD ON, he looked like a deer in the headlights, an ineffectual little perfumed prince squeaking for order.

No wonder Cruz beat the clown.

These senators should have to watch a 20 week abortion procedure and be shown pics of 20 week old in-womb babies, before casting their votes.

I hope it hurt. I hope it leaked. I hope she gets a UTI. And I mean that from the bottom of my heart. She is a putrid example of immoral womanhood and we should be digging every bit of dirt on her the way the left treats any woman on our side.

If a planned Parenthood doctor put in the catheter, she probably will get several diseases. From the life she has apparently led, she may have aids.

Though Wendy Davis may come your way,
She won’t water flowers to bloom in May

Because it isn’t raining rain, you know,

That’s cheating. (Although I think that men may have an advantage when it comes to filibustering “fairly”.)

I wonder if she also wore a device similar to an “in the egg, egg scrambler”, for feces? Probably not, because it might all flow out and she would deflate like a balloon, being full of it.

A back brace, too. That’s cheating. Filibusters are supposed to require a little suffering, at least.

But maybe some of the GOP losers could get some of those back braces. Not quite a spine, but it might help a bit.
