2012 Election | Mitt Romney | Rachel Maddow | Richard Grenell

New Gay Romney Spokesman Thinks Rachel Maddow Looks Like a Man, Needs to 'Put on a Necklace'


This morning I posted about newly-appointed gay Romney spokesman Richard Grenell.

This afternoon, Rachel Maddow noted some of the choice things Grenell has tweeted about her, that she "needs to take a breath and put on a necklace" and that she is a "dead ringer" for Justin Bieber.

The latter is among a collection of sexist Twitter attacks highlighted by Think Progress.

  1. Ah yes, the positive Mittens spin on this guy Grenell was that he was a spokesperson for W's ambassador to the United Nations. What the Mittens people forgot to mention is that the scumbag this Quisling was a spokesperson for was John Bolton, a staunch believer that there aren't enough wars for Americans to get killed in.

  2. Turns out, some a**holes are gay.

  3. Everyone is entitled to their own stupid, ridiculous opinion. I think this Richard Grennell won't find much love in the gay community, except maybe from "Rick". How about it, Rick, you want to be this guy's significant other? Looks like you both could use some love, and I'm guessing you're both short on options.

  4. I can't help but get the feeling that it's been a really, really long time since anyone plowed Miss Grenell but good. Poor dear, all she has left is bitterness.

  7. Well, he's a gay Republican, so that right there kills his credibility and then to turn around a make some middle school joke about a fellow gay human being is ridiculous. I don't think too many people take him seriously, seeing as that he represents the very side that wants to take away his rights as an America citizen and who generally looks down on gays He's a pathetic JOKE.

  8. So what...$300,000 for the election with a $100,000 bonus if he can get amendments on the ballots in states that don't have them yet and another huge bonus if he can sell the public on the repeal of DADT. Wow, by Christmas he can buy a condo in Mehlman's building in Chelsea.

  9. Rachel will put a necklace on her neck when you take the FMPs off your feet.

  10. Can I read any of these forums with-out 3/4 of them degenerating into 'Rick' s*cks rants? Is 'Rick' real or a made up persona designed to agitate?


    The necklace thing is goofy, but Rachel Maddow does look like Justin Bieber actually, or vice-versa. Not saying I dislike the woman [I don't know her anymore than 99.99% of the posters here in all likelihood actually know her], just a simple observation.

  11. Wow. I knew Rachel Maddow was a pathological liar whose "reporting" is always exposed to be factually inaccurate. But I did not realize she was a woman. I thought she was just a man the same was Larry O'Donnell is technically, chromosomally, male.

  12. This might get interesting. *Pops corn and sits back awaiting the show*

  13. Bruce, surely you jest. Pathological liar? Reporting always exposed to be factually inaccurate? Proof, please.

  14. How deeply must you loathe yourself to work for a lying, hateful homophobe? And imagine the contemptuous looks he'll get at Romney meetings where he-man haters gather to out-Mitt each other! Poor, stupid, pathetic bastard.

  15. "I heard Rachel Maddow on Fresh Air on NPR explain why she dresses plainly. She said she doesn't want to dress in such a way as to distract from her stories"

    Yeah, just as lesbians will tell you that cut their hair super-short "because it is easier to care for" or that they wear men's shirts because "they are more comfortable."

    When in reality, those who do those things are really just trying to look like men.

    That aside, all the squealing in this thread, as hilarious as it is on one level, is pathetic on another.

    It demonstrates how completely indoctrinated some of you have become with the ideology of "gender-non-conformity" and its ugly grandmother--feminism--and how deeply they have damaged you psychologically, to the extent that you no longer even have a recognizable male identity.

    It was a comment about a necklace, for heaven's sake......and look at all the bile that such a light-hearted comment resulted in.

    As sad as it is funny.

  16. And Romney and his goons need to wake up and realize that it's not 1950 anymore.

  17. RICK, like the Timex watch that he is, reliably weighs in, STILL an idiot!

  18. What's funny, Rick, is your misogynist homophobic ass calling anyone psychologically damaged.

  19. Bruce issue with women or just this one?? You rick Jason dam it's getting crowded in here

  20. Why does our community have so many traitors ?

    @RICK: You are getting really pathetic.

    Posted by: JackFkTwist | Apr 21, 2012 12:19:23 PM


    Our subculture 'community' is really an almost mirror image of the 'community' at large; those who do and say the 'correct things fit in, those who think outside he box, are often ridiculed and even bullied by those in the 'community'. It would appear to be a human nature thing, not a gay/straight thing.

  22. and he, like all Gay Republicans, needs to grow a pair of balls.

    NOT because he's "a woman" - because he's a wimpy little boy whose orbs never dropped.

    This is what Gay Republicans do to get "tolerated" - neuter themselves, then piss on themselves for good measure, to show subservience.

    and, as usual, all the gay republican (wait, did i say ALL? i meant both of you, with your fake aliases. sorry) will type out some nonsense from a place of complete anonymity. because you can't possibly put a face to your gay republicanism - it might piss off the people you're still sucking up to.

    Grenell is a wimp and a coward, but this is what gay republicans do. tow the line for the bully you're scared of, and get one more day of pithy tolerance.

  23. Rick, your self-image problems are your own; we don't want them. Can't you see we don't wan't them? We have enough problems from outside the community without taking on yours too.

  24. @LUCAS: Any examples? Or just a "gay liberal" cheap shot? If you're a "gay liberal", then I'm Ted Nugent. If we're talking about snark on blog-sites by hit-and-run commentators, um, maybe. If we're talking about professional talking heads, responsible activists and politicos. Maybe not. So, it's always good to back up your "gay liberal" comments with facts. Unless, of course, you're a GOProud Girl or a LCR-ette, or just a run-of-the-mill conservative who thought to inject a little whiny-con controversy on a gay-oriented newsite. Facts, honey. Just the facts.

  25. If Rachel Maddow looks like a man....I would TOTALLY go out with a man......
