    I believe her long winded speech may be for nothing as the emergency session is back in force on Monday.

    @dano -- It wasn’t a “long-winded speech” it was a filibuster, you fool. Call it what it is.

    And yes: the Republican anti-woman asses called for another special session. Hey, they were willing to lie about the timing to try and force a vote through; they won’t let the rules stop them.

    There’s a groundswell of support for Davis, though, all across the country. They won’t have an easy time of it.
