Another Republican victory for intolerance

Last week I wrote about the Romney press operative who should never have been hired because, well, even among press flacks he's a well-known asshole.

Oh, he's also gay -- and the GOP base cannot have that.

Rubin adds that “officials from the Romney campaign and respected Republicans not on the campaign contacted Ric Grenell over the weekend in an attempt to persuade him not to leave the campaign.” Grenell was upset that there was no public statement of support for him “by the campaign and no supportive social conservatives were enlisted to calm the waters.”
So again, he had to resign because he is gay. As opposed to not being hired in the first place because again, he' an asshole -- but of course those are the qualities that made him a perfect Romney team member:

 Former Reuters reporter Irwin Arieff told HuffPost that Grenell "often lied," adding that he was the "most dishonest and deceptive press person" he'd worked with in over two decades on the job.

Is "enlisted to calm the waters" the Log Cabin "falling on the grenade"?
