Wow. Just when you think far right Texas Gov. Rick Perry couldn’t possibly get any nastier or more misogynistic: Rick Perry Attacks Wendy Davis: ‘She Was a Teenage Mother Herself’.

PERRY: In fact, even the woman who filibustered the Senate the other day was born into difficult circumstances. She was the daughter of a single woman, she was a teenage mother herself. She managed to eventually graduate from Harvard Law School and serve in the Texas senate. It is just unfortunate that she hasn’t learned from her own example that every life must be given a chance to realize its full potential and that every life matters.

State Sen. Wendy Davis responds:

Texas State Sen. Wendy Davis (D) responded to Gov. Rick Perry on Thursday, chiding him for using “small words” that tarnished Lone Star state values.

“They are small words that reflect a dark and negative point of view,” Davis told the Associated Press Thursday. “Our governor should reflect our Texas values. Sadly, Gov. Perry fails that test.”

She also added that his comment was “without dignity and tarnishes the high office he holds.”
