Modern Family co-creator mocks Mitt Romney’s wife

Ann Romney, who supports her husband’s stance against the legalisation of same-sex marriage, recently revealed she is a big fan of the U.S. comedy, despite the fact the hit programme features gay couple Mitchell Pritchett and Cameron Tucker, portrayed by Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet, among its main characters.

Now Modern Family co-creator Steve Levitan has poked fun at the irony, writing on, “Thrilled Ann Romney says ModFam is her favorite show.”

He went on to sarcastically propose a guest appearance for Romney, quipping, “We’ll offer her the role of officiant at Mitch & Cam’s wedding. As soon as it’s legal.”

Romney was officially named the Republican Party’s candidate to challenge President Barack Obama in November (12) on Tuesday (28Aug12).
