Dallas Morning News asks: Will the Abbot-Nugent fiasco give Wendy Davis a bump?Ted Robberson is an Editorial Writer for the Dallas Morning News and this blog item appears on the Dallas Morning News Editorial Blog at http://dallasmorningviewsblog.dallasnews.com/...
Texas State Senator Wendy Davis is an exceptionally good Democratic candidate for Governor of Texas, but to win she is going to need all out support from Democrats and Progressives in every corner of the United States. And she is going to need a little help from the Republican candidate, Greg Abbot. Abbot appears willing to do his part.
Abbot recently appeared on stage with and welcomed the endorsement of gun-lunatic Ted Nugent, the famous pedophile. Republicans so admire the Vietnam era draft dodging dope addict that he greatly increases the turnout and enthusiasm for appearances by Republican candidate Abbot.
This is too much for even the Dallas Morning News, which has been a major propaganda organ for the Republican Party for decades. In his editorial, Robberson notes that Abbot currently leads in the polls, but states:
"..Abbott did himself some serious damage by attaching himself to Nugent, a man who cannot seem to control his mouth and has a penchant for making racist and sexist remarks. There is also, of course, his background of affairs with underage girls and his days as a draft dodger during the Vietnam War."Ann Richards was elected Governor in large part because the Republican candidate, rancher and oil-man Clayton Williams, thought that rape was a humorous subject. To prove it he liked to tell a funny joke about how a woman should just "lay back and enjoy it (rape)". Who knew then that Williams' world view would become the model for modern Republicans everywhere.
I ache to see suburban Republican women recognize what a depraved gang of political perverts (see picture above) they condone and support, and rebel in the name of sanity.
I wonder how many times the non-voting Texans of Hispanic descent will hear someone like Republican US Senate candidate Chris Mapp say:
"ranchers should be free to shoot "wetbacks" on sight"before they decide that it is worth the trouble to vote for Governor or President?
Please support Wendy Davis with your vote and/or your financial contribution. Turn Texas Blue and the whole Republican House of Cards collapses, forever.
