Like a middle school geek trying to woo the hottest girl in class, the GOP got the cold shoulder when they tried to pick up “Modern Family” for their team.
During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Ann Romney, Republican candidate Mitt Romney’s wife and potential future First Lady, told the entertainment news source that the ABC comedy sitcom was her favorite show.
However, “Modern Family” creator Steve Levitan rejected the friendship request, responding to the statement on Twitter. And, instead of just bashing the woman, he offered her a part in the series.
But, consistent with the show’s tone, the offer had a touch of sarcasm in it…
Thrilled Ann Romney says ModFam is her favorite show. We'll offer her the role of officiant at Mitch & Cam's wedding. As soon as it's legal.

Scoreboard says: “Modern Family,” 1 – Ann Romney, 0…
Levitan was obviously poking fun of the Romney’s disagreement that two of the same sex should be able to wed, as “Modern Family” features a gay couple, Mitch and Cam – played by Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet…
Ann’s husband - who was officially appointed the 2012 GOP presidential candidate at the Republican National Convention this week - is known to disagree with the idea of legalizing gay marriage, maintaining the opinion that marriage is reserved for a man-on-woman relationship.
“Marriage is a special institution between a man and a woman and our Constitution and Laws should reflect that,” Romney said during an address.
Of all the shows and all the characters that Ann could have highlighted, she went ahead and chose the one that hypocritically highlights one of the hottest debates in the country right now.
But, if she could be the First Lady someday, she might as well get used to putting her foot in her mouth now.
