Gawker messed with the wrong guy. 

Peter Thiel is willing to spend lots of time and money going after people. 

"Last month, I spoke at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland because I believe our country is on the wrong track, and we need to solve real problems instead of fighting fake culture wars." 

I was so relieved when he said this at the Convention. Maybe "being Republican" can start to be more than a group of people with a narrow, sanctimonious mind-set.

He seemed to be the only one at the Republican convention talking that way.
