‘Sell your soul much?’ Wendy Davis spox defends vicious anti-Abbott ad

Democrats are excellent judges of character, as evidenced by the fact that Wendy Davis chose this guy as her communications director:

Here's the guy who decided attacking Abbott's wheelchair situation was a good idea -> @Zac_Petkanas

Zac’s as loyal as they come, pimping that noxious attack ad like a real pro:

Greg Abbott even argued against an amputee in court, saying she wasn't disabled b/c she had a prosthetic limb http://t.co/FDmKNvCCFA #TXlege

Wheelchair ad roils Texas gov. race http://t.co/58sAsxR0oW via @POLITICO

Watch Wendy Davis' brutal new attack ad http://t.co/4Uqx1o0dtD via @SpeedReads

Davis ad says Abbott got rich off his tree-limb case, then resists other victims' suits; Abbott calls ad "disgusting" http://t.co/EhVodwoTKb

— Zac Petkanas (@Zac_Petkanas) October 10, 2014

He’s so proud!

@Zac_Petkanas do you welcome the backlash?

— Christopher Hooks (@cd_hooks) October 10, 2014

@cd_hooks I'm not following. Voters shown this ad ask a simple question: how can Greg Abbott deny victims the justice he sought himself?

— Zac Petkanas (@Zac_Petkanas) October 10, 2014

@Zac_Petkanas @cd_hooks my straw poll suggests that voters shown this ad are asking "wtf, Wendy Davis?"

— EricaGrieder (@EricaGrieder) October 10, 2014

@EricaGrieder @cd_hooks Sounds scientific.

— Zac Petkanas (@Zac_Petkanas) October 10, 2014

Even Chuck Todd couldn’t convince him that the ad might’ve gone too far:

In football terms, this is what we would call a "Hail Mary" from the Davis campaign. https://t.co/qWSXOuKiD7 // very risky

— Chuck Todd (@chucktodd) October 10, 2014

.@chucktodd You wouldn't think it was so risky if you talked to the voters who've seen this ad.

— Zac Petkanas (@Zac_Petkanas) October 10, 2014

It was a huge hit with the voters, guys!

"What? We showed this to rabid leftists and they LOVED this ad!" https://t.co/Qeq2fUydVw

— RB (@RBPundit) October 10, 2014

"We had a balanced panel. It was 50% people who hate Abbott and 50% people who only disliked him!!" https://t.co/Qeq2fUydVw

— RB (@RBPundit) October 10, 2014

Shorter @Zac_Petkanas: You don't understand. The Davis supporters we polled LOVE when we pick on crippled people. https://t.co/IY0MvAbFvz

— Matthew (@Matthops82) October 10, 2014

@JustEric “All the Davis supporters LOVE us for attacking a disabled guy! What’s your damage, dude?!” @RBPundit @Zac_Petkanas

— Heather (@hboulware) October 10, 2014

You need a new focus group. @Zac_Petkanas @chucktodd You wouldn't think it was so risky if you talked to the voters who've seen this ad.

— JG (@JohnG405) October 10, 2014

Focus groups are the least of his problems now.

Bro, my advice would be to lay low for a while. This can only end badly for you. @Zac_Petkanas

— RB (@RBPundit) October 10, 2014

Too late. He’s already getting pummeled — and rightly so:

I am a voter that has seen the ad. I am a native Texan. And I am also disabled. You people are sick. @Zac_Petkanas @chucktodd

— Mav #Southbound (@TheMaverick21) October 10, 2014

I'm a TX voter. It's trash. RT @Zac_Petkanas: .@chucktodd You wouldn't think it was so risky if you talked to the voters who've seen this ad

— William J. Miller (@WilliamJMiller) October 10, 2014

@Zac_Petkanas @cd_hooks Ask yourself this simple question: Where are you being such a dick about it?

— Ryan Gustafson (@RyanLGustafson) October 10, 2014

@Cameron_Gray @Zac_Petkanas Desperation stinks badly

— Jim Hawkins (@jimdwrench) October 10, 2014

@Zac_Petkanas people like you disgust me. @politico

— Gregory Sloan (@GSloanMDK) October 10, 2014

@Zac_Petkanas Sell your soul much playa?

— JT Earle of DeEville (@eville_parole2) October 10, 2014

@Zac_Petkanas @WendyDavisTexas horrible ad about Greg Abbott. Yall that desperate?? #notcool #txlege

— Dixon Steel (@dixonsteel) October 10, 2014

@Zac_Petkanas @chucktodd There's no way you're getting undecided voters with this ad. If you're undecided or conservative, highly offensive.

— Keep Texas Red (@myanof) October 10, 2014

@Zac_Petkanas Yes, keep shining up that turd, bro! https://t.co/IfvdO5NemA

— Carl Gustav (@CaptYonah) October 10, 2014

You should be ashamed RT @Zac_Petkanas: .@chucktodd You wouldn’t think it was so risky if you talked to the voters who’ve seen this ad.

— Jay Caruso (@JayCaruso) October 10, 2014

You really think "voters" approve of your ad subliminally targeting the disabled? Mandatory drug testing –> @Zac_Petkanas @chucktodd

— Theresa Giarratano (@TMGijane) October 10, 2014

Wins the moron of the day award —> @Zac_Petkanas

— Suze (@suze109) October 10, 2014

Possibly biggest douche in politics MT @RBPundit: My advice would be to lay low for a while. This can only end badly for you. @Zac_Petkanas

— Cameron Gray (@Cameron_Gray) October 10, 2014

Exit flashback:

Recall that @Zac_Petkanas also tried to portray #GregAbbott as white nationalist-friendly http://t.co/pJi9bw9CtF – Great hire, #WendyDavis

— Cameron Gray (@Cameron_Gray) October 10, 2014

Hell of a guy.

Democrats, please pay this man to run all your campaigns @Zac_Petkanas
