    Mitt Romney's Gay Spokesman: A Milestone in Republican Politics - Politics

    As Grenell told the gay magazine The Advocate of his unsuccessful attempt to get his partner listed in the U.N.'s "Blue Book" of diplomatic personnel and their spouses: "Some people are going to yell at me, because it's been a quiet fight. I think a lot of people's style is to do a quiet fight." Not, by implication, his.

    He is also a staunch and vocal advocate for what much of the Republican base believes is an effort to destroy the institution of marriage. As I noted two days ago, Grenell told Kerry Eleveld of The Advocate in 2008 that though he and his partner met in New York, he lamented that they couldn't marry there at the time. "It is not an option for us in New York, but hopefully someday soon it will be," he said. "In my mind, and in Matt's mind, this is it. We're married."

    This might be the second "Etch a Sketch" moment. The base isn't going to like it.

    You know, I bet there are more gay scientists than Republican scientists.

    Republicans goal is to "undiscover fire".

    Romney is perhaps more open minded than many give him credit for.

    One take away point is that Mittens has been all kinds of ultra right wing, sucking up to the radicals, the baggers, the great unwashed of the pub party.

    Now that he's a shoo-in for the nomination, he is heading straight to the center to suck up to those who believe they are "moderates".

    That's why he's suddenly agreeing with the president about college loans and why the Ryan "plan" has suddenly gone away. Believe me, it has not gone anywhere. They just put it in a desk drawer until after the election. If they win, it will be passed so fast, you won't even notice their hands in your pockets.

    Just wait ... Mr Etch A Sketch will get more and more reasonable as November draws near. He will pretend to be intelligent and actually care about the Little Guy. His speech was proof of that but he told so many lies, I thought he would trip over his nose as it was growing.

    The rw's will also be falling all over themselves to talk about what a great guy he SUDDENLY became and they'll never wonder why he changed.

    He did make one huge gaffe - telling us we should forget about all those who worked hard to get where they are and instead, how we should "congratulate" him and other white collar crooks.

    Mr Etch A Sketch is a real piece of work.
