Passing the milestone in reverse

So here’s my question: is it wrong to find this funny?
The recent hiring of Richard Grenell, Mitt Romney’s openly gay foreign-policy spokesman, represents a breakthrough in the world of Republican presidential campaigns.
Which would make the slightly-more-recent resignation of Mr. Grenell a… breakback in the world of Republican presidential campaigns? Or is the funniest part when Molly Ball writes that “Some activists cautioned that Romney shouldn’t be given too much credit”? To Ms. Ball’s credit, her update is called Romney’s Gay Spokesman: So Much for That. Tho’ I would say that the tone of the piece is not sufficiently shamefaced for being taken in so completely.
The correct answer to the question I started with is probably that it’s not wrong to find it funny, so long as I keep in mind that it isn’t funny at all.
