Please take a moment to savor this hilariously breathless post from the Atlantic, the big scoop of which is that Mitt Romney has hired an old Bush hand as his foreign-policy spokesman, and the guy, Richard Grenell, is gay.
I can only guess what anybody thinks the relevance of Mr. Grenell’s sex life is to the Romney team’s foreign-policy stance. Imaginary conversation: “Iran? Terrible place to be gay. Iraq? Terrible place to be gay. Afghanistan? Terrible place to be gay. Pakistan? Terrible place to be gay. Libya? . . .”
The piece also notes that Mr. Grenell supports gay marriage, while Mr. Romney does not. Unnoted is that Barack Obama, who also has gay staffers, also opposes gay marriage.
NOTE: Gay Republicans go way back:
