Wendy Davis – The Most Judged Woman in America? Certainly NOT! That distinction belongs exclusively to Lady M.
A woman who – from the time she became FLOTUS-in waiting - has been judged on everything:
From her posture:
h/t Cripes Suzette
To her, uh, “grasp” of proper protocol:
And her fashion decorum, whether at work:
or at play:
Then there was all the judging done about her new hair:
and the endless judging of her dancing skills:
as well as her Kardashian-esque clothing selections that showcase her, uh, greatest asset:
Of course all this judging is due solely to the sexist Republicans. Just like it is with that sweet, sweet Wendy Davis. Just because she ditched her kids - an ultimately the husband who raised them - to pursue her own ambitious goals doesn’t make her a bad person. That is altogether something else.
So let’s be clear: the only reason people criticize Lady M or Wendy is because, 1) RACIST! or, 2) WAR ON WOMEN!
Because it’s not repeat, NOT, a reaction to the fawning media that had made Lady M into a Fashion Icon and Busy Mom™ and turned little Wendy into a world class heroine and role model. As LukeHandCool commented on Professor Jacobson’s fine post:
“We all know many, if not most, politicians exaggerate and embellish their life stories. We get that.
But (and this is a big, big, butt*) … the media made her into a huge, huge heroine, like they were heroin addicts who couldn’t get enough Wendy and wanted to forcibly inject Wendy into our veins, also.
As with Barack Obama … if the media is going to try to transform some mediocrity into the greatest political figure since Churchill and shove her down our throats … expect some huge pushback.
For every action there is a reaction. And when the media subjects us to a huge action of its cheerleading … there will be a strong reaction … especially in the wake of the Obama “smartest leader ever” debacle.”
* footnote: You don’t suppose LukeHandCool is one of us, do you?
Butt don’t forget: RACISM! SEXISM! WAR ON WOMEN!
And if you’re thinking “hypocrisy” right now, it’s probably because you’re a SEXIST! Or, worse, a RACIST! So let’s try harder people: do we really need to be so judgmental?
I think not.
