Just three hours after implying Abbott, her GOP opponent in Texas’ gubernatorial election, would support a ban on interracial marriage — despite the fact that he’s married to a Latina — the Davis camp issued a press release that included an article from the progressive Texas Observer entitled, “Greg Abbott: Dildos? Against ‘em. Interracial Marriage? No Comment.”
Christopher Hooks wrote at the Observer:
In 2008, Abbott chose to defend the state’s ban on the sale of sex toys, a case that emerged from the fallout of Lawrence v. Texas. Over the years, Abbott has deployed novel legal arguments against gay marriage. But this wasn’t a case about gay marriage, a subject that still animates sincere moral disagreements. This was a case about every American’s god-given right to buy dildos.
Translation: How dare Abbott do his job and defend the laws passed by the state legislature and enacted by the governor.
The Daily Caller added:
It seems the reason the Davis campaign thought it was a good idea to send out the email was because Hooks agrees with their claim that Greg Abbott “likely would have defended a ban on interracial marriage, according to his own principles and record. He wouldn’t have known how not to.”
Except for a couple of details, which aren’t exactly so minor.
First, Abbott is married to a Latina, a woman who would become Texas’ first Latina first lady should Abbott win. Second, Abbott already said a ban on interracial marriage would be unconstitutional.
But that would require something called “thought,” a commodity very much in short supply on the left.
