do it, assholes. propel this woman to the national spotlight once again while she exposes your deep hatred of women.

It's Texas.

You can buy a lot of chickens with $800,000.
 
2013-08-01 12:40:16 PM
Yeah. Do that. It should end well.
 
2013-08-01 12:45:48 PM
Even if they are successful in making her pay, won't that set a precedent that will effectively destroy filibustering in Texas, and perhaps nationally?
I say let 'em try. It won't work, and they'll just look like idiots trying.

Like Larry David, she should bring them a big black penis cake.

Texas Republicans should personally pay to feed, clothe, and provide medical care for all of the unwanted children that many Texas women will now be forced to have.
 
2013-08-01 12:58:28 PM
They're like petulant children.

They don't care about the national spotlight - for them, it's a moral battle and they don't care what the rest of the country thinks.
Furthermore, these are Republicans in Texas.  They'll get what they want, and they'll all win reelection in landslide victories.

Applied at the national level, we could pay off all our debt with proceeds from the GOP filibuster threat jar.
 
2013-08-01 01:10:51 PM
Shocking... That they didn't think of this sooner.

She didn't make you take up the abortion cause, she didn't make Governor Perry call another special session when you failed. The party of personal responsibility strikes again.

Isn't Texas a state where rape victims pay for their own rape kits out of pocket?

This.  DO IT.

The best and worst job in the country would have to be Press Secretary for the Texas Republican Party.

Either a filibuster is legal or it is not.  Davis' filibuster was conducted within the rules of the body of which she is a part, and there doesn't seem to be a question of whether she broke the law.  This seems rather petty.

Of course, the source is "Think Progress" so maybe, just maybe this isn't the straightest telling of the facts.

Did these guys get paid during the special sessions? How about returning your paycheck because you didn't get your sh*t done during the regular session?

It won't cover the whole cost, but it will help.

The source is the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram, you dumb bastard.

"I firmly believe that Sen. Wendy Davis should reimburse the taxpayers for the entire cost of the second special session," he said. "I am sure that she has raised enough money at her Washington, D.C., fundraiser to cover the cost."

i'm pretty sure that's just in missouri and indiana. in texas, you need to get cleaned out.

During the House budget debate in April, Brenham Republican Lois Kolkhorst and Austin Democrat Dawnna Dukes were debating an amendment. As the debate intensified, their male colleagues in the chamber started meowing and making angry-cat noises. Several times each session, men in the House will make cat noises when two women are debating. Link

These legislators are essentially teenage boys.

Regardless of what you may have heard, "Think Progress" is not the "World Net Daily" of the left.  They generally link to actual sources and/or provide video/audio.

I was referring to this. But it's just another chapter in the book of Texas Republican Stupidity.

I think if Larry David knew he was being compared to Texas Republicans his reaction would be something like this:

I don't think the GOP really give a damn about democracy. They're far too authoritarian and autocratic to put up with different points of view. I'm sure the republicans like to tell themselves that they're all for freedom and junk tho.

What do you expect from a group of idiots?

Texas Democrats, assemble! Time to come out of the closet and fight back.

They still haven't fixed the road funding bill and are coming back for a 3rd; so STFU and get back to work on passing the bill that should have been your #1 priority in the first place

That's pretty pretty stupid.

Wow, this is an epic amount of projection

""I am upset at the cost," Capriglione said. "I think we need to remember why we are having this extra special session. One state senator, in an effort to capture national attention, forced this special session. "

No you ignorant representative of an ignorant people, you Republicans forced it by focusing on abortion instead of what you originally intended.
 
2013-08-01 02:47:35 PM
I wonder if the Texas Republicans will pay for the extensive legal costs to defend this bill out of their own pockets, especially after it gets shot down in the courts and they decide to appeal it over and over again.

I agree. We should remember this as often as we can.

She was representing those that voted for her - passionately, and to the best of her ability, with every remedy the rules and laws allowed.  Apparently, when GOP members do it in Congress, it's all good and 'murikan.  But when a libby-lib-lib does it in Texas, she has to pay for the privilege.

Fark off.

And also, kudos to subby to finding s way to fit Larry David into a headline.
