Gay GOP Group Mocks Democratics As 'Real Housewives' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

GOProud, a gay conservative group, is out with a new ad mocking key Democrats in Washington as tragically flawed people, like the women of Bravo's "Real Housewives of D.C."

"If you thought the housewives were dysfunctional, wait until you meet the real Democrats of Washington D.C." the ad's narrator reads, showing pictures of Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) and Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.).

"They're catty," the ad continues, using a word choice that seems to be taking an apparent dig at the openly-gay Frank. A clip of an irate Frank confronting an anti-Obama constituent at a town hall meeting over the summer then plays.

"They're arrogant," the narrator says, showing Boxer and playing a notorious clip of her asking a military officer to refer to her as "senator" as opposed to "ma'am."

"And they're in charge," the ad continues, showing Pelosi. "Under Democrats, reality bites," the narrator concludes.

Politico reports that the ad will air on Lifetime and Bravo.
