Ellen Barkin recruits little Romney supporters on The New Normal tonight

After being hounded by the antigay group One Million Moms (which has, according to most sources, about 40,000 members), Ryan Murphy's comedy about two gay papas, The New Normal, gives a shout-out to the group in tonight's episode. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Murphy and his lesbian cocreator Ali Adler wrote One Million Moms into the series with a scene in which Ellen Barkin's conservative Republic grandmother character, Jane, recruits three future Million Moms to shut down a pretend playground wedding. Best of all? Watching the kids explain their parents' views on gays and marriage equality.
