Wendy Davis May Lose Tuesday, But She Won the Internet

Wendy Davis May Lose Tuesday, But She Won the Internet

Wendy Davis is trying to bring da ruckus, bring da motherfuckin' ruckus, one campaign shirt at a time.

The latest polls show the state senator trailing far behind her opponent Greg Abbott in Texas governor race, but the Lone Star State candidate has at least one advantage: her election day gear. 

As the tweets show, Davis paid a visit to Tarrant County, Texas — home to her native city of Fort Worth — and was presented with some pretty clever shirts that played off the Wu-Tang Clan's infamous logo.

For the uninitiated: The shirts are a play on the logo of the Wu-Tang Clan, the New York City-based hip-hop group. The back reads "Wendy Davis is for the Children," which is an homage of sorts to the time that late Wu-Tang Clan member Ol' Dirty Bastard rushed the stage at the 1998 Grammy Awards and uttered the line, "Wu-Tang is for the children."

While Davis' supporters and most of the Twittersphere found the move amusing, others were less enthused.

Davis may not have much of a chance at the polls, but at least she has a sense of humor. She's faced a huge uphill battle throughout her campaign — remember when Erick Erickson called her an Abortion Barbie? — but she's still chugging along.

We can hear her thinking, "Votes rules everything around me" from here.
