Stop comparing Wendy Davis to the Khaleesi!

Wendy Davis' filibuster against a restrictive abortion bill on the floor of the Texas Legislature last week immediately became the stuff of legend -- and though Democrats' battle in Texas continues, Davis' admirers have taken her crusade from the realm of the political into the stuff of pop culture.

Comparisons between Davis and just about every popular female television character of the last few years have sprung up across the Internet -- most commonly, to Emilia Clarke's Daenerys Targaryen from "Game of Thrones," Amy Poehler's Leslie Knope from "Parks and Recreation," and Connie Britton's Tami Taylor from "Friday Night Lights."

The last one makes sense, sort of -- Davis and Taylor both are Texan women with teased heads of blond hair. It was little wonder that fans of "Friday Night Lights" started comparing the two even as the filibuster was going on.
