The very same assholes who called Texas state lawmaker and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis "ABORTION BARBIE" are getting pissy over the fact she went for the wheelchair.
Attorney General Greg Abbott is the insurgent candidate for governor. He is leading in the polls.
What makes this it so funny, its the irony of political campaigns. Those very same assholes never shy from calling President Barack Obama a "NIGGER". Those assholes have very strong hatred of Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, First Lady Michelle Obama, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
Davis rose to fame after giving a passionate speech about giving women a choice when it comes to making a life altering decision. She thought that political fire could help motivate Democrats to unseat a longtime Republican hold on the state.
The political ad has given fire to Abbott's disability.
What you didn't know about the two. Davis is a polarizing woman. She is already under attack by the racist right for her "lies" about being a part of the struggle.
What you didn't know about Abbott is the very fact that despite him being disabled, in his mind, the disabled, the poor, the needy and the unemployed better get their asses back to work. Sure he's a supporter of the American with Disabilities Act. But he believes that those who sue on behalf of ADA are whiny liberal activists who can't use their abilities like he (a privileged Republican).
CNN reports that Davis is showing signs of desperation. Obviously!
Remember that I was reporting that the Dems might go there. Well I guess it's October and the surprise is the wheelchair.
The ad starts off with the incident that led him to being in a wheelchair and then goes after him for being an advocate for taking benefits away from the needy.
"A tree fell on Greg Abbott. He sued and got millions. Since then, he's spent his career working against other victims," a narrator says of the wheelchair-bound Abbott.
The spot is a Hail Mary from the Democratic state senator who is badly trailing in the race. Abbott led Davis 54% to 40% in a recent CBS/New York Times/YouGov poll, and there are few signs she's likely to close that gap before the November 4 election.
CNN reports that Abbott's use of a wheelchair has been featured prominently in some of his own ads -- including a biographical spot where he says he rolled up a parking garage's ramps to strengthen his arm after a tree fell on him in 1984, leaving him partially paralyzed. In another, he says, "a guy in a wheelchair can move faster than traffic on some roads in Texas" as he touts a transportation funding plan.
Abbott spokeswoman Amelia Chasse blasted the Davis ad, saying it "completely disqualifies" Davis -- hinting that it could hurt her in future campaigns, too.
"It is challenging to find language strong enough to condemn Sen. Davis' disgusting television ad, which represents a historic low for someone seeking to represent Texans," she said. "Sen. Davis' ad shows a disturbing lack of judgment from a desperate politician, and completely disqualifies her from seeking higher office in Texas."
