I had the unfortunate experience of hearing from some Log Uncle Tom Cabin and GOProd types today on this issue.Great question from the Christo-nazi homophone:
Fischer Calls Out Romney:'How Is He Going to Stand Up to North Korea if He Can Be Pushed around by a Yokel Like Me?'
Instead of realizing like any sane observer would that "homosexual" Republicans are third class citizens in the Republican Party, they spun the Grenell affair as a "management" fumble by the Romney campaign.
There was no management problem. The Mittens campaign's directly conveyed strategy was for Grenell to stfu on all matters until the outrage over his appointment faded.
And not even quisling Grenell - who used to happily work for loathsome John Bolton - was willing to put up with that much lack of respect. So he "bolted."
There was no management miscommunication or error. The Mittens campaign is to homophobic, or willing to countenance homophobia, EVEN FOR self hating Log Uncle Tom Cabin types. And that's really saying something!
