Greg Abbott causes on-line stir by thanking name-calling tweeter

A Twitter poster who called Wendy Davis an “idiot” and “retard Barbie,” and said Greg Abbott would demolish her in the governor’s election, got a thank-you from Abbott’s campaign also via Twitter.

The exchange prompted a flurry of people on Twitter to suggest that Abbott should have refuted the offensive language instead of giving a shout out to the poster.

The poster, @jefflegal, frequently comments on political events and ridicules liberals. He had little patience for those who criticized his name-calling. He said he was using irony and “loved hearing complaints from liberals.”

Both he and Abbott used the hashtag #tgdn, for Twitter Gulag Defense Network — started earlier this year by conservatives who work together to protect their accounts from being taken off the network for offensive content, and also work together to get liberal content suspended.

1. Abbott missed out on, the 2012 senatorial election, the Women's Health Care Bill in the Texas Senate

and he is missing out or should I say, is already messing up his gubernatorial run. Keep on missing out and messing up, Abbott. We can tell what kind of governor you will make.
