Mitt Romney’s Grenell Gaffe (Limerick)

It can’t be easy to simultaneously piss off liberals, conservatives, gays, and homophobes. But Mitt Romney managed to do it.

How? By hiring and (under pressure from anti-gay conservatives) speedily muzzling and forcing out his openly gay, misogynistic, wingnutty foreign policy spokesman Ric Grenell.

Mitt Romney’s Grenell Gaffe (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Mitt Romney would love to dispel
His panicked farewell to Grenell:
Bigots bitched, so he jumped —
His gay spokesman, he dumped,
Selling out at alarm bells, pell-mell.

    So much for loyalty with the Mitt-miester.

    OT, Mad… just (about 2 AM CT) axed my blog for an alleged TOS violation… but they didn’t tell me what it is.

    As usual when I move, my generic forwarding address yellowdoggereldemocrat will take you wherever I’m blogging at the moment. Right now, while I try to resolve the WP conflict, I’m at my old Blogger blog. I may be stuck there forever; who knows.

    It doesn’t bother me a bit. He can be sexually oriented toward woodchippers for all I care. Grenell is a neocon warmonger and we’re all better off without him.

    Gordon, I agree he’s a horrible person. I just think it’s amusing to point out Romney’s cowardice and lack of loyalty in the face of guff from the rightwing.
