State Sen. Wendy Davis was interviewed by Peggy Fikac and it is on the front page of today’s Chron. It is also behind the paywall on Chron.com. Here are a few bits from the piece:

Davis pushed back at the idea that the November election was a setback for Texas Democrats, pointing to bright spots including her hefty fundraising and volunteer force. But she added that she wants to learn from things that could’ve been done differently.

I don’t know about her “setback” take. Scoreboard is a pretty powerful indicator. And:

In an exclusive interview, she reflected on the campaign and pointed to one thing she would change. Davis that she wishes she had a do-over on her campaign decision to support open carry of handguns. Her position put her at odds with her party and alarmed a number of supporters. She said Monday that she opposes open carry.

Yeah, that was a pretty bonehead move. And:

The lawmaker catapulted to national prominence because of a well-publicized filibuster against tighter abortion restrictions. She has now accepted invitations to speak at Planned Parenthood events around the country.

Now that is good considering she was criticized during the campaign for dodging the abortion rights issue. And:

She didn’t rule out anything from another race for governor to trying to regain her state Senate seat, which was won by Republican Konni Burton after Davis ran for governor instead of aiming for re-election.

I am sure there are a whole host of folks that have plenty of takes on Sen. Wendy Davis’ campaigns – past and future. My advice: Nothing against her 2014 team, but how about reaching out and talking to other advisors across the state and country to get their takes. Who knows – they may be fresh?

Here is the story on the interview: http://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/article/Wendy-Davis-expects-to-stay-in-politics-5984368.php.

Only one MLB team failed to reach the 100 team dinger mark this past season. Name the team?

Commentary usually doesn’t mention kids in sports because they don’t get paid like the pros. I do want to give a shout out to little leaguer Mo’ne Davis of Philadelphia’s Taney Dragons for winning the AP 2014 Female Athlete of the Year.

Commentary was watching the Packers and Lions this past Sunday when the Detroit Lions defensive tackle stepped on Olivia Munn’s boyfriend on purpose. Yesterday the jerk from the Lions was handed a one-game suspension and will miss the playoff game against the Cowboys. What an arsehole. The whole country saw it.

Speaking of the NFL, Gary Kubiak is interviewing for the Jets’ head coaching position. I like Gary Kubiak and wish him all the best, but I just can’t picture him as a head coach in New York City. It would be fun to watch though.

During the fourth hour of “Today” yesterday they put on the “Today: The Musical.” It was written by fourth hour co-host Kathie Lee Gifford. The star was Regis Philbin. Huh? Putting together a musical wasn’t a good idea and a waste of time if you ask me. I watched it and in one word to describe: excruciating.

KC of course only had 95 team dingers this past season.

Nothing from The Yard today.
