    Given the fact that a couple of our regular female posters in here were so quick to support Wendy Davis when she filibustered the abortion bill, I am curious to see how they feel about her now, given her past as a gold digger has come to light?

    Do you think it's OK what she did? Married a sugar daddy who paid for her education and supported her children as she went away to college? In fact, she filed for divorce the day after her ex-husband paid off her Harvard education...

    Do you still think she represents all women?

    They would probably think this sexist line of attack on her is repulsive.

    She's a real class act...

    She was so focused on furthering her political career that she never even asked for custody of their children...

    Just how is that a "sexist" attack??? Cannot a woman be criticized without one being sexist? Cannot a black be criticized without one being racist? Cannot a homosexual be criticized without one being a "homophobe"?

    Why does the Far Left ALWAYS default to a pejorative slur of the person who criticizes instead of countering their criticism with a viable defense???

    the truth about what a s... she is has nothing to do with sexism and everything to do with who she is

    she gave up custody of her kids and supports the killing of unborn children-hmmm

    Because it's a lot easier than thinking. And it works (puts the "offender" immediately on defensive and typically off the topic of discussion).

    Would a male candidate ever be scrutinized for how his education was paid for? Would a male candidate ever be scrutinized for whether or not he got custody of his kids? No, they wouldn't.

    Yes, he most certainly would.

    In fact, fathers who abandon their children are soundly criticized in here.

    No, they wouldn't. This all stems from the patriarchal, 1950s view of women that the GOP ananchronists hold over what is the proper way for a woman to act.

    She should call up "the dirty slut" Sandra Fluke for a primer.

    You cannot be serious. Dirt is dirt and politicians of all flavors will gladly use it to dirty the reputation of their opponents.

    God, what a silly post. How soon we forget (Bill Young thread).

    It depends on the dirt.

    No, it really doesn't. Ends (winning, touchdown dance) always justify the means in politics.

    She put it at issue by fabricating it into the heroic tale that made her someone people should want to represent them.

    Why be hypothetical when we have John Kerry to study by comparison? Conservatives made mock of his gigolo credentials marrying into wealth, liberals shrugged. So more likely an ideological divide than a sex standard.
