    She does look great on TV. The image of her holding her two fingers into the air in defiance is practically the image of statesmanship - or stateswomanship, in this case.

    I'm going to be in Austin just long enough to see the November elections roll around. After that, who knows where I'll be. But I'll be lucky enough to participate in electing this woman to the office she deserves.

    •  Statesmanship, dude. (0+ / 0-)

      I don't know if it's because I'm stubborn, sexist or resistant to change... I am all of those things; but I can not bring myself to say "stateswomanship". It's just not happening.

      It's mostly because I'm sexist. Can't do it.

      You can do whatever you want to us, but we're not going to sit here and listen to you badmouth the United States of America.

        Normally I feel similarly, but given that Wendy Davis is currently one of the highest-profile feminists in the land, I figured I'd show a little respect to her. The image of a statesman is, well, usually male.

        •  I never though of it quite that way... (0+ / 0-)

          but I suppose she is a fairly high profile feminist. Oh well, nobody's perfect. I'm going to have to vote for Hillary in three years so I suppose this will be good practice.

          Fucking two party system. I get to pick between a bunch of religious nuts and rich greedy assholes, or a bunch of ball busters and dirty hippies. Sigh.
