These shoes were made for filibustering, and that’s just what they’ll do

Last week Wendy Davis wore these shoes for 13 hours to filibuster an end-run around women’s reproductive rights. Who would have known. I wonder if the minimalist dudes will chime in about how the extra padding of the shoes was the reason she needed a back-brace.

Minor rant. Texas cares so much about Women’s health that they have the highest percentage of people who have no medical insurance – about 1/3. And when the federal government tried to expand that percentage their governor refused to take part. Again, what was Lincoln thinking?

They care so much about Women’s health that they are forcing a special session of the legislature that violates all of their procedural processes just to get this law passed.

 

My next marathon is going to be done in these shoes.
