Opening Arguments


But I repeat myself -- another thoughtless political whine:

The filibustering Texas state senator who became an overnight sensation by temporarily blocking a bill banning abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy said Monday that she might try to unseat Texas Governor Rick Perry in 2014.

Would Wendy Davis agree to be the Democrats' gubernatorial candidate next year? 'I cannot rule that out,' she said.

But she may face charges of hypocrisy if she runs for governor. Davis complained Sunday on Meet The Press that Republicans have been using the abortion issue to further their political careers - a charge the GOP would likely level at her if she were to run.

Wendy, Wendy, Wendy. Of course Republicans will use the issue that way, and of course you will, too. Exploiting the hot issue of the day is what politicians do. So? I'm always amused (healthier in the long run than being irritated) by people who heap scorn on their partisan enemies while being oblivious to the fact they're guilty of the same sin. Mote in the neighbor's eye and all that.

Hypocrisy is a normal human condition, folks, not something only your opponents are guilty of.
