Last night, something truly amazing happened. It made me proud to be a woman, to be an American, to be a Democrat, and to be a Texan.
And as we are set to embark on two-week voyage to the heart of American liberty and democracy with the children, this couldn't have come at a better time. All the history books we've been reading and all the movies we've been watching, and right here in Austin, we get the best demonstration of democracy in action. Ever.
As Abraham Lincoln said in his Gettysburg address, we are truly a government of the people, by the people, for the people, and we shall not perish from this earth. No matter how hard and illegal the Republicans play, the people have spoken, and we will continue to speak. You can call us an angry mob if it makes you feel better, David Dewhurst. I'm proud to be a member of this group of people. And MY mob didn't violate the Texas Constitution with its illegal votes and unconstitutional shutting down of dissenting female senators speaking. Nor did we spend three hours trying to change the clock.
Thank you, Sen. Wendy Davis. You are a true Superhero.
