The eyes of the world are upon Texas

First of all, I am convinced the women of Texas are perfectly capable of making their own health care decisions and don't need a right-wingnut governor, like the one who called the people in this video "terrorists," making those decisions for them.

Also thinking how much better we'd all be if either Wendy Davis or Cecile Richards were governor of Texas.

Here's Davis's reaction to Gov. Hair calling another special legislative session:

"Misplaced priorities of legislative leaders squandered a tremendous opportunity to make much needed improvements in our transportation infrastructure and help create good jobs and bring businesses to Texas. Despite urging by responsible members of the Senate to bring up the matter of transportation, Lt. Governor David Dewhurst derailed as much as much as $1 billion per year in transportation funding by stubbornly pushing divisive, failed legislation attacking women's health care options.

If leaders are serious about using this second called special session to improve the lives of Texans by repairing and expanding our transportation networks, they will find no greater ally than me. If they intend to keep pushing their extreme personal political agenda ahead of the interests of Texas families, I will not back off of my duty to fight on their behalf. "

Hair, the misogynist that he is, criticized Davis for standing up for women's freedoms by saying, in effect. "She should know better. She was a teenage mother herself." Here's Davis's reaction to that:

"Rick Perry's statement is without dignity and tarnishes the high office he holds. They are small words that reflect a dark and negative point of view.

Our governor should reflect our Texas values. Sadly, Gov. Perry fails that test."
