In an apparent bid to win over the votes of reality television fans, the gay-conservative group GOProud has a new ad that compares congressional Democrats to The Real Housewives of D.C.. The ad employs soundbites and splashy purple graphics to make the argument that Barney Frank, Barbara Boxer, and Nancy Pelosi are catty, arrogant, and more dysfunctional than “the housewives.”
The first Real Democrat up is Catty Barney, whose image is accompanied by an audio clip of him engaging in one of his characteristically heated debates. Then comes Arrogant Barbara’s turn. GOProud apparently feels that her request for her colleagues to refer to her as ‘senator’ instead of ‘ma’am’ is out of bounds.
They also bring up Nancy Pelosi, whom they dislike mainly because she’s Nancy Pelosi. Finally, the ad ends with a total burn: “Under Democrats, reality bites.” Guess there’s no better way to excite midterm election voters than by alluding to an Ethan Hawke movie from sixteen years ago.
