|Mitt Romney wearing his "magic underwear."|
There’s a lot to dislike about Mitt Romney. However, at the top of the list is the fact that the Etch-A-Sketch candidate has no backbone. This week Mittens threw his own spokesman on security issues under the bus. Richard Grenell was the subject of a Reich Wing Freak Out because he’s…shhh!... a homo, who lives as an openly Gay man. There was the usual shitstorm with the usual suspects, including Bryan Fischer, of the horrible American Family Association, known nationwide for its intolerance. Mittens reacted to the controversy by asking Grenell to seek other employment.
Here’s the real joke, tho’. When Fischer found out Grenell had been fired, he called it a “huge win” for the religious right. Then, the very next day, Fischer did his own pivot and started criticizing Romney for listening to him in the first place:
[I]f Mitt Romney can be pushed around, intimidated, coerced, coopted by a conservative radio talk show host in Middle America, then how is he going to stand up to the Chinese? How is he going to stand up to Putin? How is he going to stand up to North Korea if he can be pushed around by a yokel like me?
