Sean Bielat Doesn’t Want His Viral Fat Suit Ad To Look Homophobic Toward Barney Frank

How does a Barney Frank attack ad get made? The same way sausage does: with cash money and some creative editing. Sean Bielat, the “fresh-faced former Marine with a Georgetown-Harvard-Wharton pedigree” that was sorta heckled by Frank’s partner James Ready, got into a race against Frank because the incumbent is “abrasive.” So now he’s enlisted the help of viral political spot writer-director Ladd Ehlinger Jr. — the fella behind this Dale Peterson number — to create two web and one TV spot that turn Frank into a guy “dancing around” all the issues, relays the NYT. This will be communicated with a female dance instructor in a fat suit playing the role of Rep. Frank. But they were very careful about one thing:

When Kira had finished her first dance-through, Mr. Bielat walked into the studio.

“I think it was great,” he said. “You were awesome. The only thing I want to ask is, don’t do the feminine stuff, you know what I mean? You know where I’m going with this, but I don’t want anyone to say, ‘Oh, they’re homophobic.’ ”

(Mr. Frank is gay, and Mr. Bielat did not want the ad to seem to make fun of his sexual orientation.)

      Sean Bielat says, “I don’t want anyone to think we’re homophobic…”

      Um, no Sean, we don’t think — we know — that the Republican establishment IS homophobic.

      Sean Bielat opposes DADT repeal and is against gay marriage, even though he is from Massachusetts.

      Meanwhile, the guys at GayPatriot & GOProud are having a circle jerk while thinking about Sean Bielat in his Marine uniform.

      Oh yeah, not homophobic at all. Have a woman play Barney Frank and have her gyrate her hips and disco dance as fruity as possible.
