Shocker! The Left and the media (as always concentric circles on a Venn diagram) are being shameless once again. Wendy Davis’ filibuster? Super awesome and squee-worthy. Sen. Cruz’s? OMG, embarrassment! Also, evil and stupid and stuff. Probably racist too.
Gee I wonder why NYT and WaPo and everyone else gave ecstatic coverage to Wendy Davis but not to Ted Cruz. I just can't make sense of it!

Snicker. NRO’s Charles C.W. Cooke makes sense of it and comes up with the reason:
Guys, the difference between Cruz and Davis is that Davis is Hispanic but Rubio and Cruz are just boring white politicians. Oh, wait . . .

This Twitter user has a poignant exit point:
Cruz is up there talking for 18 hours straight to highlight the disastrous ObamaCare. Wendy Davis stood up for hours to kill babies.

Bingo. That is what the lapdogs think is “worthy” of hero status. Never forget that.
