Wendy Davis Now Doing a Fashion Spread for Vogue, In Her Cutesy Pink Sneakers

The palace always appreciates an interesting new courtier. The old ones get so boring; once one has exhausted all the possibilities of intrigue, affair, and revenge with the current courtiers, one needs fresh toys.

Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis (D), who gained national attention after filibustering an anti-abortion-rights bill in Austin, will be appearing in Vogue’s September issue.

In addition to detailing her impressive wardrobe and the pink sneakers she wore during her 13-hour filibuster, the fashion magazine article details her rise from being a 19-year-old single mother to Harvard Law school and a potential Texas gubernatorial bid.

There's always been a Court and there's always been a Court Party. It's just obnoxious, though, that all the instruments of the media are now celebrating the Court Party, and that the rest of us -- hitherto unbothered by the self-fawning spectacle -- now have to watch it.

I guess it's better this way, as awful as it is-- better to see what's going on, no matter how distasteful, than to not see it and be oblivious to it.

Via Doc Zero, who says that the media is primarily in the business of stamping out new Idols of the Left on its always-buzzing production lines.
