    GOP Dirty Trick: Greg Abbott Won’t Denounce ‘Abortion Barbie’ Posters Supporter Paid For
    Republican Attorney General Greg Abbott is keeping it classy in Texas, where he refused to denounce the “Abortion Barbie” campaign posters that greeted Democratic state Senator Wendy Davis in California Thursday. It turns out that one of his supporters funded the posters.

    Kathryn Stuard told the San Antonio Express-News “she donated an undisclosed amount to conservative street artist ‘Sabo’ to create the posters, which portray Davis’ face over a semi-naked Barbie doll with an exposed fetus in the womb.”

    Sabo describes himself as a conservative and a Republican, according to San Antonio Express-News. Stuard claims that the campaign had nothing to do with the posters, she just felt like commissioning 20 of these nasty posters to greet Abbott’s Democratic rival for the Texas gubernatorial race, Wendy Davis, and Stuard just so happened to use the campaign strategy that Erick Erickson promised would alienate Latinos, in Los Angeles.

    Wendy Davis’ campaign spokesman Zac Petkanas wasn’t surprised at Abbott’s lack of civility in refusing to denounce the posters, probably given that Greg Abbott once thanked a supporter for calling Wendy Davis “retard Barbie”.

    Surprise, surprise, Davis doesn't like being associated with abortion if it might hurt her chances of being reelected.

    It's a "dirty trick" when they are on the receiving end of it, but they laugh, smirk and snort when they sexualize and demean conservative women.

    However it seems it's the ABORTION part of the name that Davis doesn't like even though it is quite true.

    1. Just call him Coat Hanger Greg.

    Someone else suggested that. It's not an original idea, but it's appropriate I think.
    Yea that'll hide Davis' position on abortion from Hispanics that don't agree with abortion.

    And what's with Abbot having to "denounce" something he had nothing to do with? I haven't heard any liberals denounce any of the smears on Palin. In fact they have joined right in.

    Maybe a Survivors-style poster showing dismembered aborted babies with the caption, "Wendy Davis Filibustered In Support Of This!" would have been more direct and accurate.

    This whole 'Call for denunciation' thing is a stupid and pointless drill, no matter who does it.

    Luckily for the Abbott campaign, this doesn’t seem too far off the mark for the Republican, given his own desperate, ugly personal attacks against Davis and her family, which only revealed that he knew nothing of the experience of single moms, women in general, married women, or daughters.
    WTF? It was her campaign that made fun of Abbott being a handicapped person. How much more personal can you make an attack? Liberals lie and they always accuse others of doing what they themselves are guilty of doing.
