Open Eyes, Full Heart, Can't Stop Lying: Wendy Davis, Abortion Warrior, Claims She Has No Idea What Happened in Gosnell Case

And then -- I'm not kidding -- she says she does know Gosnell's clinic was an "ambulatory surgical center."

"I don't know the primary, secondary, or tertiary facts of the case you speak of, but I do know this quaternary fact about the legal classification of the sort of facility he operated."

That's her story.

THE WEEKLY STANDARD: The supporters of these bans, they argue that there really isn't much of a difference between what happened in that Philadelphia case with abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell [killing born-alive infants] 23 weeks into pregnancy and legal late-term abortions at 23 weeks. What is the difference between those two, between legal abortion at 23 weeks and what Gosnell did? Do you see a distinction between those two [acts]?

SEN. WENDY DAVIS: I don't know what happened in the Gosnell case. But I do know that it happened in an ambulatory surgical center.

I don't know anything of this "Hitler" character you're talking about but I do know his favorite light opera was The Merry Widow. And that's all I know.

This tactic -- strategic ignorance -- is a favorite one of politicians. And of the media, actually, on the rare opportunity they are asked a question. In order to avoid answering a question, they claim, preposterously, brazenly dishonestly, to be not quite sure about what it is you're talking about, and you can hardly ask them to render an opinion on things they know nothing about, right?

It's a direct lie and it should be called such-- right to their faces. But John McCormack here wasn't quite expecting to have Wendy Davis lie so brazenly right to his face, so he was caught a bit on the back-foot.

Pressed a bit, Wendy Davis does say she agrees with Nancy Pelosi, aka "Honorary Texan," that there should be absolutely no limits of abortion up to and including the baby's passage through the birth canal.

This is "sacred ground," she reckons.
