Mitt's tour ends in communications meltdown

In a moment of delicious symbolic significance, the Mittster's European Tour of Errors ended with a curse. As in Romney's press aide cursed out the press. Seems they had the audacity to shout out questions.
But his traveling press secretary was furious.

“Kiss my ass; this is a holy site for the Polish people,” said aide Rick Gorka. “Show some respect.”

Gorka then told a reporter to “shove it.”

Gorka subsequently called a pair of reporters to apologize, saying he lost his cool.

“It was inappropriate,” Gorka said.
Can't think of a more appropriate ending to this miserable tour myself. Priceless.

Yet while Mittster looks the fool to the majority of the world population, this will likely play well with the angry base. Hits the right pleasure centers. That mean old lieberal lamestream media being mean and unfair to Mitt. And who cares what those furrniers think anyway. Hell, the campaign is already pushing that exact meme out to the press.

I expect it will work to some degree but it says something when they're working this hard just to keep the base in play.

I saw this earlier and split a gut. "Kiss my ass, this is a holy site..." will go down in history as one of the most hilariously disastrous lines in politica history.

Bumper stickers are in order...

Pretty much already developed into the new meme on the intertoobz.
