GOProud tries to sway queer voters to the dark side with "Real Democrats of DC"

Some people may get the idea that I'm ready to join the Republican Party with all my talk about the recent GOP overtures to the gays. Nothing could be further from the truth. The fact is I've had it with both parties and consider myself an independent. What I really love about red staters going pink is that it throws a monkey wrench into the works. Influential Republicans like Meghan McCain and Ken Mehlman and groups like GOProud are changing the conversation and blurring the lines between Liberal and Conservative values. I find it it exciting in a political geek sort of way.

The gay republican group GOProud continues to stir the pot by taking advantage of our community's frustration with the Dems and pointing out just how badly we've been burned by them. The group's latest effort is a campaign ad spoofing the Bravo channel's "The Real Housewives of DC" where they take aim at "Catty" Barney Frank, "Arrogant" Barbara Boxer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, well, just because she's Nancy Pelosi.

The GOP is far from on our side yet, but there is hope that GOProud's efforts may one day help to level the playing field and make LGBT equality a bi-partisan issue.
