Wendy Davis Exposed! (As Having What Seems Like A Totally Great Ex-Husband)

News

Be prepared to weep and beat your breasts, Wendy Davis lovers! The Dallas Morning News hasEXPOSED some FACTS about your precious Governor Barbie, and how she was only a poor single mom working her way through college and living in a trailer for a while. Then she married some dude, wasn't poor anymore, didn't live in a trailer anymore, and had help with her college loans! So all those times she never said she was poor FOR EVER are totally going to bite her in the ass, we guess? Sure, why not. (Also, you guys, she's not even blonde!) But, reading through the EXPOSE, we were struck by one important thing: how awesome does Wendy Davis's ex-husband sound? Wendy Davis: if she can pick a great ex-husband, what can't she do??


  • He helped her with college. Before she started dating Jeff Davis, Wendy was waiting tables by night and going to community college.

    While they dated, Wendy Davis enrolled at Texas Christian University on an academic scholarship and a Pell Grant. After they married, when she was 24, they moved into a historic home in the Mistletoe Heights neighborhood of Fort Worth.

    Jeff Davis paid for her final two years at TCU. “It was community resources. We paid for it together,” Wendy Davis said.

  • He was a good dad who kept the homefires burning while Wendy furthered her education at Harvard. He said nice things about it instead of being shitty.

    The daughters, then 8 and 2, remained with Jeff Davis in Fort Worth while Wendy Davis was at Harvard.

    “Harvard really impressed her with a different culture of energy, really bright young people. That was something she would like to be around. She just enjoys that culture,” Jeff Davis said.

  • He was not at all jealous of her time or ambition.

    Jeff Davis had once served on the Fort Worth City Council, and Wendy Davis expressed interest in running for a seat in 1996.

    “I opened some doors for her with people, knew how bright she was and knew she’d do a good job,” he said.

  • He apparently is a guy who can forgive and forget, which is a fine quality in an ex-husband. Also said nice things about Wendy giving him custody of their girls and made sure to throw in the words "good mother."

    In his initial divorce filing, Jeff Davis said the marriage had failed, citing adultery on her part and conflicts that the couple could not overcome. The final court decree makes no mention of infidelity, granting the divorce solely “on the ground of insupportability.”

    Amber was 21 and in college. Dru was in ninth grade. Jeff Davis was awarded parental custody. Wendy Davis was ordered to pay $1,200 a month in child support.

    “She did the right thing,” he said. “She said, ‘I think you’re right; you’ll make a good, nurturing father. While I’ve been a good mother, it’s not a good time for me right now.’”

  • Backs her up when a bunch of assholes are trying to claim her life story is a lie because she only was a poor single mom living in a trailer and working her way through college for a while.

    “When she was 21, it became a little easier for her. The first 21 years were about working one, two and three jobs, trying to get through, raising a kid, driving an old Toyota pickup truck that was the smallest you could find.

    “She got a break,” Jeff Davis said. “Good things happen, opportunities open up. You take them; you get lucky. That’s a better narrative than what they’re trying to paint.”

Way to pick an ex-husband, Wendy Davis! A++ ex-husband, would marry and divorce ex-husband again!

'Bella" by Wonkette Operative 'IdiokraticSubpoenaKommissar'

Sunday already, which means a substantial portion of US America is preparing to be astonished/heartbroken/outraged by the series finale of that show with the dragons, while another portion is just going to stay off Twitter for three days because nothing will make any sense. Yr Dok Zoom tends to come very late to trendy things, so get ready for our own thoughts on the gamy thrones show sometime in about 2023, or never. But we'd be glad to tell you just how much we enjoy the brilliance and humanity of the Cartoon Network series "Steven Universe," which debuted in 2013 and we started bingeing on the Hulu last month, late again.

Hell, we still want to talk about that one Mrs Landingham episode of "The West Wing," which we first watched years after it aired (We finally bought our new used car yesterday, and know one thing: don't drive over to the White House to show it off to President Bartlet). We might even get around to reading Infinite Jest someday. We hear it has something to do with a superhero team and a guy named Thanos. So hey, let's talk about culture and missing out and patching together some knowledge of what's happening anyway.

Get Me Roger Stone

Roger Stone, his wife would like you to know, is broke. And he is not dealing with it well. Once in khaki suits, gee, he looked swell, full of that yankee-doodle-dee-dum, but now no one calls him Al anymore and he has to stand on a street corner singing "Brother Can You Spare A Dime?"

Yesterday, the conservative but also kind of Never Trumper site The Bulwark revealed the details of a grifty "fundraising" plea sent out by Stone's wife Nydia, begging supporters to give money to the Stones in order to help them keep up the lifestyle to which they have become accustomed.

It was titled "I am embarrassed to write this."

"Dear Friend," begins the missive. "My husband and I have an urgent new problem and we need your help. I told my husband I was going to write you, one of his most valued supporters. I am embarrassed to write this, but I must."

"Mrs. Roger Stone" tells a tale of woe: FBI agents swooping in on them at the crack of dawn to arrest her husband, a subsequent "fake news" feeding frenzy causing friends and fans to abandon the Stones.

"He laid off all our consultants, contractors and employees, and we have 'pulled in our belts' like so many Americans in 'tight times,'" she wrote, sounding for all the world like a plucky working-class patriot, not the wife of a man who made and lost his fortune lying in the service of power.

She should have been more embarrassed.
