Mitt Romney’s travelling campaign spokesman Rick Gorka will be taking some time away after he got so frustrated at reporters that he exclaimed, “kiss my ass,” and what’s entertaining to us about this sabbatical is that it extends the time “family newspapers” will write about the incident without actually writing about the incident.
Reporters were pretty annoyed at the dearth of opportunities they had to ask Mitt Romney questions on his trip abroad, and so as they flung questions at him from afar in Poland — deep questions like “What about your gaffes?” Gorka responded to a spate of these questions with, “Kiss my ass. This is a holy site for the Polish people. Show some respect,” and later told a Politico writer “shove it.” Romney is once again travelling but a Romney aide told the press Thursday that Gorka was “taking some time off the trail,” presumably to squeeze a stress ball or do some yoga or practice counting to 10 in his head or something.
