What do you think? I just suggested to my W. VA Dem friends, who are doing such a bang-up job at organizing in Trump country, that they respond to the big shot Texas Congressman Blake Farenthold, who says if the three Republican women Senators were men, he would challenge them to duels -- and presumably be the last man standing, writes the Texas Tribune.
If you remember, Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Shelley Moore Capito of W. Va brought the Senate health care strategy to a screeching halt last week. Interviewed by local Corpus Christi radio host Bob Jones on Friday, Farenthold said: "Some of the people that are opposed to this, there are female senators from the Northeast... If it was a guy from South Texas, I might ask him to step outside and settle this Aaron Burr-style."
I'm not sure the way to repeal Obamacare is by holding a gun to people's heads, but we all know gunslingers get their way in Texas. Apparently, Congressman Farenthold is a colorful Texan -- as many are -- having been charged with sexual harassment in 2014, writes ProgressTexas. I'll bet the 3 Republican women senators are just shaking in their high heels right now, reading about Farenthold's desire to shoot them dead..
