Ted Cruz Overturns Federal Judge’s Decision in His Spare Time


Apparently, Ted Cruz, Esq. managed to eke out a few minutes in his busy, busy schedule on the Cruzapalooza Self-Aggrandizement Tour to overturn a Federal judge’s ruling on a controversial Texas abortion law.

Cruz, a Hahvahd Law graduate, master-debater and freelance constitootional skolar advised the world that we should all ignore Judge Lee Yeakel’s ruling because the Texas law “is, too!” constitutional.

According to Cruz the law is:

. . . commonsense legislation to protect the health of women and their unborn children. 

and furthermore:

This law is constitutional and consistent with U.S. Supreme Court precedent protecting the life and health of the mother and child. I hope the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals will uphold Texas’ reasonable law.

Judge Yeakel, a George W. Bush appointee, no less, found several provisions of the Texas law to be unlawful, ergo the dozen or so [almost half of state-wide] Texas abortion clinics that were scheduled to close today will still be open for business.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Texas Attorney General and Governor-in-Waiting, Greg Abbott, thumbed his nose and promised to keep up the good fight to protect Texas’ purty little ladies and unborn buckaroos:

Today’s decision will not stop our ongoing efforts to protect life and ensure the women of our state aren’t exposed to any more of the abortion-mill horror stories that have made headlines recently.

Now, let’s take a moment to unpack Abbott’s statement.  Evidently he’s concerned that there are unregulated, back-alley, horror-story-worthy abortion mills all over Texas endangering Texas women.  Who wouldn’t be concerned?  But, then, I’m thinking that the State Attorney General is in a great position to do something about that.  So why is he wasting his time dreaming up ways to harrass well-regulated Planned Parenthood clinics?

Gov. Rick Perry, not to be outdone, added his two cents:

We will continue fighting to implement the laws passed by the duly-elected officials of our state, laws that reflect the will and values of Texans.

Constitutional or not, I take it.

Phew!  I guess the rest of us can only hope that what happens in Texas, stays in Texas.

Go, Wendy!

I love how these guys have decided that they can just toss laws without following the appropriate process.
