A Template for Journalists and Pundits Discussing Wendy Davis’ Political Solvency

by Andrea Grimes, Senior Political Reporter, RH Reality Check

"Bold—but politely negative—statement about the political solvency of a Wendy Davis gubernatorial campaign. Reiteration of good intentions, but declaration of unusually brave and unbridled honesty forthcoming about the certain failure of Wendy Davis, a woman political person who mainly focuses on woman political things, like abortions and abortions.

Acknowledgment that Wendy Davis is both physically and politically attractive, however abortions. Pricey running shoes and abortions. Mention of boots, because Texas. Condescending nod to people who believe Wendy Davis has a viable chance at winning the Texas governorship, but declaration of the veracity of the author’s singularly noteworthy ability to perceive political reality, in which the electoral landscape in Texas conveniently reflects author’s worldview. Curious absence of evidence that author has ever stepped foot in Texas."

"Nevertheless, setting of the scene with cowboys, football, and cowboys playing football in demonstration of deep historico-political understanding of the Lone Star State, which it must be noted, is the insider nickname for Texas, because mavericks. Comparison of Wendy Davis to a maverick. A maverick who abortions."

SNIP

"Because, laundry list of things a Democrat would have to have to win a statewide office in Texas, according to brief perusal of the “politics” category on Texas’ Wikipedia page or a conversation with someone on Twitter who overuses the hashtag #TCOT. Observation that Wendy Davis has none of these things, because abortions. Credulous citation of research conducted by the Texas Public Policy Foundation, Empower Texans, or the Family Research Council."

1. Please make sure all news organizations have this.

I'd hate for them to have to work any harder than they have to, especially since the above IS what they are going to churn out, no matter how hard they try to have an original thought or clear-eyed perspective.

2. Andrea obviously forgot something.

Abortions. Maybe she could work that into the template somewhere.
