    Which is why I took advantage of the opportunity to vote for both options.

    What do we call a woman who is with a guy for money, but when the money dries up, she's done with him?

    She has two children, full custody of her two children were given to her ex-husband even though he is not the biological father. Isn't it uncommon for the courts to award full custody to the father? What did she do that she was not awarded custody of her own kids? The divorce records are sealed. Hmmm. As a Texan, I'm concerned about this.

    Also, did she even want her kids? There's no record that she even fought for them.

    Did she want her kids? We know she's an advocate for partial birth abortion.

    Do you think, given the character concerns this woman has, that she will win in the state of Texas?
    I know little about her, and it is impossible to judge her from just the facts presented in the original post, which seems to be a hit piece from one of her opponents. Do we know for a fact that she initiated the divorce? I suspect the details of the custody hearings are kept confidential, so we probably do not know whether or not she tried to keep custody. Did they adopt the children, or were they hers from before the marriage? If they were adopted she had no more obligation to retain custody than her husband did. The fact that she supports legal abortion says nothing about her parenting abilities.

    What you want to do is read the Dallas Morning News article published earlier this week (if you're genuinely interested in catching up).

    She'll won't lose because of her background, it'll be because she isn't a moral fascist. Texas loves'em.

    The problem is that she doesn't wear a huckleberry with 45's holstered...and she thinks its okay to brutally, aggressively murder innocent little babies in the womb...as so elegantly described by moral fascists.

    She actually believes that women should have control over their reproductive health and role. Can you believe that? She believes that women should have equal rights to life, liberty, property, and self-determination. Man...what the hell is she thinking? Women thinking that they're equals...HA! The humanity of it all!

    I thought divorcing Jefferson Davis was the funnier part.

    Link me up please. I Googled too, including refs to his title company, but everything I found used only "Jeff Davis," even sites that discussed his Princeton degree and service on the Fort Worth City Council.

    sounds like somebody is worried about living in a state with a women as governor. The thought is terrifying right!
