Romney’s New Gay Spokesman Already Apologizing For Catty Comments

Ooh, girlfriend, out flack Richard Grenell was just named Mitt Romney’s spokesperson for foreign policy and national security and he’s already apologizing for sniping at Newt and Callista Gingrich on Twitter.

Among the various bitchy tweets that Politico dug up:

  1. “do you think callista’s hair snaps on?”
  2. “Calista stands there like she is wife #1”
  3. “let’s have Newt rate all his wives….”
  4. “what’s higher? The number of jobs newt’s created or the number of wives he’s had?”

Sexist/misogynist attacks on Newt’s wife/wives? She’s a sassy little gay man, isn’t she?

Her decidedly unsassy apology: “my tweets were written to be tongue-in-cheek and humorous but I can now see how they can also be hurtful. I didn’t mean them that way and will remove them from twitter. I apologize for any hurt they caused.”

We’re sure Callista was sobbing on her divan when she saw the tweets, Grenell. But if this is the way he’s going to backtrack when he insults people, we’re sad. We really could use a diva who refuses to back down.
