Wendy Davis Tries To Hold A Gun

The Democratic Party is sorely lacking in candidates. They have been for quite some time. Actually, there aren’t lacking in candidates so much as they are lacking in candidates who run on more than one issue. They have these champions of women’s rights, or gun control, or anti-war rhetoric, but they don’t have many candidates who offer complexity. Maybe that’s because they don’t need complexity to win.

The Democratic Party thrives on simplicity. Simplicity of chants, and slogans gin up liberal voters. When you can get people to vote for you with “Bush lied, kids died,” or “my body, my choice,” why would you ever campaign on actual, substantive material? This slogan-based campaigning has paved the way for two candidates: Wendy Davis, and Sandra Fluke.

This normally wouldn’t be much of a problem for a liberal, but since her campaign has gained such vibrant national attention, conservatives have been able to strike.
