This young lady has more guts than I can say about MOST, IF NOT ALL, of her male
colleagues have! She stood there and delivered for all of those hours for what
she believed in. She is a true STAR in every sense of the word-and I hope she is
rewarded via additional prestige and standing in her community. Bless her.
Good grief! Filibusters have been used hundreds, if not thousands of times
before in both state and federal legislative sessions. This is certainly not a
first, nor will it be a last. It's simply an established legal way to
further one's personal or party political agenda. As such, why
should do so this time make this woman a "star"? Answer: It
shouldn't. But apparently, because the media is admittedly
liberal, and because this woman has a pretty face and is filibustering for one
of their liberal causes, the media is trying to make a social star out of her...
and apparently succeeding. But let it be understood that she has done nothing
unusual regarding political tactics. And as such, she does not deserve star
status to all of us.
@ Tators: You are right - it is no big deal. And neither was Rand Paul's.
Of course, if Rand Paul had been held to the same standards as Wendy Davis, his
filibuster would never have gotten off the ground since he was filibustering for
a totally unrelated cause.
