Meet the Wendy Davis truthers

Oh FFS





The Texas lawmaker looks a little different than she did 30 years ago, and one anonymous blog wants to know why

Wendy Davis claims to be a Democratic state senator representing Texas’ 10th district, but what does the public really know about her? Sure, the public knows that she stood and talked for more than 11 hours in order to block a vote on a sweeping measure that would have made (and may still make) abortion virtually unavailable in Texas. And yeah, OK, the public knows that she is a Harvard-educated lawyer with a history of advocacy for women’s health and reproductive rights.

But, does the public know if she’s a natural blonde? Or if she wears eyeliner? No, they do not — and that’s where the Wendy Davis truthers come in.

An anonymous blog popped up over the weekend to ask these and many other important questions about the filibustering senator; questions that would no doubt be asked of any man in a similar position.

For example: Why does Davis look a little different than she did in law school?

Now consider Texas state Senator Wendy R. Davis, who has recently been in the news being touted (however dubiously) as the Left’s technologically enhanced “feminist superhero.” She is 50 years old. Yet … it appears she gets better looking each day. If she has not found the Fountain of Youth, at minimum she has found very talented plastic surgeons and image consultants who have readied her for her closeup.

1. Well I guess they need to take up their complaint with time and the laws of nature

Other than that I really don't know how to respond this is so ridiculous it really seems like it should be satire but apparently it's not

2. It has been sometime now that any rational thought can be attributed to Republicans.

When any rational thought emerges it is quickly discredited

4. My favorite part of this story...

 

...is the fact that the ad I'm being served from Salon is the Amazon page for the sneakers she was wearing when she did her filibuster! The page with all the great user comments:

Wendy's 50?
So am I.
And when it comes up, people think I'm about 35.
I don't know what Wendy's secret "Fountain of Youth" might be, but for me it's good food, good weed, regular orgasms and Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Soap.

5. ZOMG! She's DONE SOMETHING WITH HER HAIR!

Clearly, it's a conspiracy.

I mean, who doesn't have the exact same hairstyle as they did in 1991... Anyone? Anyone?

9. LOL

I forgot about that-- very close, almost a prototype. I had punk rock hair or 'Rock and Roll' (of the 80's) hair, every color at one time or another. Even platinum. Yikes, I'm glad I don't have pictures.
