All The People Mentioned By The New York Times In The 16 Paragraphs Before They Named Texas Can-O-Whoop-Ass Wendy Davis


Perhaps you heard there was a small 'fuffle last night as some Texas Bad-Ass got allshrill and PMSy for ALL THE HOURS last night, foiling the GOP's efforts to steal a vote right in front of the whole universe. WELL! The Paper of Record heard about it too! And they had quite a nice little story about the "petite Fort Worth Democrat in pink sneakers" who (according to this Texas state Rep.) "terrorized" Texas with all the yakkety-yak. But did that li'l lady have a name? Sure she did! In paragraph 17. So who got to have names in this here New York Times story before Wendy Davis did? Let us count them! IMPORTANT UPDATE BELOW!

  • Rick Perry, "governor."
  • Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, some guy.
  • Occupy Wall Street. A bunch of ruffians for whom David Dewhurst does not care.
  • Mark Jones, a political science professor, what has thoughts on these "ladies."
  • Rice University, a university in Houston that employs Mark Jones.
  • Austin, San Antonio, Dallas, Houston, McAllen and Harlingen, which apparently are "places."
  • Cecile Richards (president of Planned Parenthood, daughter) and Ann Richards (governor, mom).
  • Wendy Davis. Who?

Then the New York Times cited two other ladies, one of whom is another Senate Democrat, and one of whom is the "president" of "Whole Woman’s Health," as if a lady could be president of something, like they even might have had opinions on the bill that mattered or whatever, as if.


Apparently somebody at the Times reads your Wonket, as the Paper of Record has now seen fit to give Wendy Davis her own name in the second paragraph instead of the 17th. Also, they deleted "petite."

The Dumb Song Of J. Dinesh Prufrock

A quick Dear Shitferbrains for you smart kids today, in response to our recent piece on Dinesh D'Souza's continued insistence that historian Kevin M. Kruse please bitchslap him with facts again and again. It turns out we picked the wrong historian to lionize, according to "Hadding Scott," who dropped by to let us know we had foolishly referred to a mere Princeton professor instead of to the most comprehensive take-down-er of D'Souza's lies, "Hadding Scott" himself.

Among the primary results from Tuesday that we didn't report: Chris Murphy, US Senator from Connecticut, managed to hold on to the Democratic nomination for a second term. Actually, if you want to get all technical about it, he didn't win the nom Tuesday -- he'd already been nominated at the state party convention in May, and the Dem primary was cancelled since Murphy was the only one to file. Murphy's also heavily favored to win reelection this fall. The biggest question for Murphy is whether he's hoping to seek some other office in a couple years. (As if any prominent Democratic senator hasn't already mentally compared their inaugural crowd size to Trump's.)
