Wingnut Extraordinaire Bryan Fischer Thinks Mitt Might be a Wimp
On Tuesday, newly-appointed, openly-gay Romney spokesman Richard Grenell was forced to resign after his gayness caused him to be targeted by radical religious right uber-conservatives lead by Bryan Fischer.
Today on his radio show, “Focal Point,” Fisher wondered:
Let me ask you this question, people have raised this question, if Mitt Romney can be pushed around, intimidated, coerced, coopted by a conservative radio talk show host in Middle America, then how is he going to stand up to the Chinese? How is he going to stand up to Putin? How is he going to stand up to North Korea if he can be pushed around by a yokel like me? I don’t think Romney is realizing the doubts that this begins to raise about his leadership. I don’t think for one minute that Mitt Romney did not want this guy gone; he wanted this guy gone because there was not one word of defense, not a peep, from the Romney camp to defend him. They just went absolutely stone cold silent, they put a bag over Grenell’s head, they even asked him to organize this phone conference and they didn’t even let him speak at the conference that he organized.
Fischer is amongst the wingnuttiest of the wingnuts. He’s the kind of guy who, 30 years ago would have been thought of as pretty close to insane and so fringe as to be waived off and ignored. But now, what with Republicans having devolved into a pulsating mass of ignorance and hate, someone like Fisher has the power to boss their presidential candidate around. But I have to say that in this case, I agree with the guy.
