• Wendy Davis Should Have Learned a Lesson on Exploiting the Handicapped From Larry David


    Gubernatorial hopeful Wendy Davis is one big Texas disaster. After her now-infamous campaign ad in which she essentially attacked opponent Greg Abbott for being in a wheelchair, she decided not to take the uncomfortable road to an apology, and instead doubled down.

    Democratic strategist and former Howard Dean campaign manager Joe Trippi called her “desperate,” and predicted that Davis will absolutely not win the governor’s race. MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski, another diehard liberal, said she “cringed” watching the ad. “She should be appealing to women, and she should be inspiring them and having a positive message,” said Mika. “Yikes.”

    But Wendy isn’t listening to any of that criticism. On Monday, she made an awkward campaign appearance with a room full of wheelchair-bound supporters, almost as if to say “some of my best friends are handicapped.”

    Beware, Surgers — this one is painful to watch:

    Wendy, oh, Wendy. If ever a facepalm was completely warranted, the time is now.

    And now that you’re likely in total wince-mode, make sure to watch the Curb Your Enthusiasm clip at the top of this page. Perhaps if Mrs. Davis had observed the cautionary tale of Larry David and the woman he aptly dubbed “Wendy Wheelchair,” this whole mess could have been avoided.
