Oh man, don't you just hate it when people try to tell you that being gay and being Republican somehow doesn't make a whole lot of sense? I mean, okay, sure, the party is currently being driven by a hardcore base of people who publicly despise your way of life and want to keep you from having the same rights as anyone else, but that doesn't mean you have to set yourself apart from those people, does it? No! Totally not!
Like, what's to stop a homosexual fellow from advising a Republican presidential candidate on foreign policy matters completely unrelated to LGBT issues? Nothing! Case closed.
In completely unrelated news, a foreign policy advisor to Mitt Romney was forced to resign because he is gay…
Richard Grenell, the openly gay spokesman recently hired to sharpen the foreign policy message of Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign, has resigned in the wake of a full-court press by anti-gay conservatives.
In a statement obtained by Right Turn, Grenell says: "I have decided to resign from the Romney campaign as the Foreign Policy and National Security Spokesman. While I welcomed the challenge to confront President Obama’s foreign policy failures and weak leadership on the world stage, my ability to speak clearly and forcefully on the issues has been greatly diminished by the hyper-partisan discussion of personal issues that sometimes comes from a presidential campaign."
Now, some people may say that the first half of this post doesn't really fit in with the second half. But I say that's just a bunch of divisive liberal spin.
