kimwim: Go Wendy!! How long does she have to go, til midnight? Does she get bathroom breaks? Can she eat? Drink? Can we send her a pizza?
kimwim: Why no drink? People at the podium usually have a bottle with them
RedT: kimwim: Why no drink? People at the podium usually have a bottle with themAre there any rules for a filibuster?Filibusters are governed by theRule 3.02 prohibits eating or drinking in the Senate chamber.Rule 4.01 requires a member of the Senate to stand at his or her desk to address the Senate. The member speaking may not sit, lean, or use a desk or chair in any way. Bathroom breaks are not allowed.Rule 4.03, which governs the interruption of a member who is speaking, allows other senators to raise objections if a speaker does not confine his or her remarks to the issue under consideration or if his or her voice is inaudible.
sdd2000: Can she yeild for questions from other senators?
UrukHaiGuyz: Go, Wendy, go! Thank you, and thank you voters of District 10.
Crotchrocket Slim: Fark, this is how you filibuster. Filibustering is meant to throw the gears in the legislative process to stop some BS from being passed, not for some neo-Confederate faux libertarian in denial of being a Republican without any political skills to waste everyone's time on a subject he demonstrates he has no understanding of, only to vote in favor of the appointment he took the opportunity to filibuster against and do fark all to introduce any sort of legislation later on after rubes and simpletons on the internet start giving him props and campaign contributions.
moos: This begs the question of why she's doing this solo, but moving past that...She should relieve herself mid-filibuster. I think her point would be made.
Girl On Couch: Go Wendy!You can send her your support here
theknuckler_33: She just made the point that I have asked myself many times. How is this legal/constitutional to have these kinds of requirements for abortion services only and now for any number of other out-patient types of surgeries that are performed in doctor's offices and clinics throughout the state/country?

Ned Snark: It's ok when democrats do it, i see...
Sinbox: Texas can't turn blue fast enough.I just hope that once it does that some of the outbound red damage can be overturned.Go, Wendy!
Soup4Bonnie: Texas legislature just looking out for the health of women and not trying to block abortion at all. That's why Perry took it to the special session to ram it through and not the regular session where it needed more than a simple majority to pass. For the sake of the women!
The My Little Pony Killer: Ned Snark: It's ok when democrats do it, i see...Considering they're fighting for the rights of their constituents and not against strawmen, yes, it is ok when democrats do it.
