Yes, Texas Gov. Rick Perry is still allowed to talk, and the public at large is still free to wildly mischaracterize his words. The latest salvo in Perry’s “war on women” consists of his direct “attack” on Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis, whose filibuster Tuesday helped derail legislation that would restrict abortions in the state after 20 weeks and require physicians who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital.

Think Progress is tonight leading the charge, leveled by Davis herself, that Perry attacked her in a statement today at the National Right to Life Convention, and it even has the video to prove it, as well as a transcript. Perry made reference in his remarks to the fact that both Davis and her mother were single mothers who overcame difficult circumstances, with Davis herself managing to graduate from Harvard Law School and be elected a state senator. “Who are we to say that children born into the worst of circumstances can’t grow to live successful lives?” Perry asked.

That was the attack, by the way.

You right-wingers misunderstand, as usual. While it might seem as though Perry was saying Davis’ own accomplishments are proof that every life has potential, his noting of her own motherhood was actually an example of passive-aggressive slut-shaming.

Hey, why stop at claiming Perry was trying to imply it, even passively?
