‘Forget it. She’s rolling.’ Sally Kohn botches history/geography, claims ‘typo’

Oof:

No, really. Oooooooof.

Good rule of thumb, Sally: Whenever a thought pops into your head, keep it there.

“Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?”

Rolling right over herself:

A “typo.”

Update:

Doubling down on dumb: Sally Kohn asks for GIANT GLARING DIFFERENCE between these events, gets an earful

Heh. Sarah Silverman, you’ve been had. By Wendy Davis, no less.

As Twitchy reported, Texas gubernatorial hopeful Davis has done a bit of an about-face on late-term abortion, and she now says she doesn’t think a ban on 20-week abortions is such a bad idea after all. That’s gotta smart for Davis’ Hollyweird admirers. Which makes this whole Davis debacle even sweeter.

So join us for a stroll down Memory Lane, won’t you, as we take a look at some of the lefty celebs who are probably feeling even stupider than usual today:

May all of our daughters grow up to have the courage and conviction of Wendy Davis.

Provided they’re not aborted first, right?

‘DISGUSTING’: Texas grand jury indicts activists who exposed Planned Parenthood’s fetal organ trafficking

Wow:

From the Houston Chronicle:

A Harris County grand jury probe into Planned Parenthood of the Gulf Coast ended Monday with the indictments of two anti-abortion activists.

David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt were both indicted for tampering with a governmental record. An additional indictment for prohibition of the purchase and sale of human organs was issued for Daleiden, according to a release from the Harris County District Attorneys Office.

“We were called upon to investigate allegations of criminal conduct by Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast,” said Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson. “As I stated at the outset of this investigation, we must go where the evidence leads us. All the evidence uncovered in the course of this investigation was presented to the grand jury. I respect their decision on this difficult case.”

Thanks to Ted Cruz, Texas executes cop-killer

Protestors in Mexico, including one man who burned an American flag, weren’t able to persuade Texas to spare the life of cop-killer Edgar Tamayo. He was convicted of shooting Houston policeman Guy Gaddis in the back of the head with a gun he had snuck into Gaddis’ patrol car after being arrested in 1994.

Here’s some background on the case via BBC News:

[Tamayo] was among the four dozen Mexican nationals awaiting execution in the U.S. in 2004 when the International Court of Justice in The Hague, Netherlands, ruled they had not been advised properly of their consular rights.

Former President George W. Bush ordered Texas and other states to review the cases, but the US Supreme Court ruled in favour of the state in 2008, saying the president could not effectively enforce The Hague’s ruling, leaving it to Congress to pass legislation.

Yes, that’s right. When Texas argued its sovereignty before the U.S. Supreme Court to execute the nationals in question, President George W. Bush sided with the World Court against Texas.

Not one of W’s finest moments.

It was Ted Cruz (then Texas’ Solicitor General) who  the case for Texas and won, paving the way for Tamayo’s execution yesterday.

The flag-burning incident occurred a week ago in Mexico in protest of Tamayo’s scheduled execution:

Some opponents of Tamayo’s execution, such as the American Bar Association, cited Tamayo’s low IQ as an extenuating factor:

Testing has determined that Tamayo has an IQ of approximately 67 and major limitations in adaptive functioning.

(We keep hearing that IQ is a “” concept. Apparently, it is a perfectly valid concept if the person citing it happens to be liberal.)

Many photos related to Tamayo’s execution were posted to Twitter yesterday:

Finally, after twenty years, justice has been served.

Rest in Peace, Guy Gaddis.
