When it's your first time, do it with Obama

A new Obama campaign ad sexes up voting by women.

 

Lena Dunham, an actress who also directed the film 'Tiny Furniture', is featured in a political advertisement released by the Obama campaign. The tatooed redhead compares her first opportunity to vote for Obama to the loss of her virginity. Apparently speaking earnestly, the Mayflower descendant tells the camera “Your first time shouldn’t be with just anybody. You want to do it with a great guy,” says Dunham. “A guy who cares about whether you get health insurance, and specifically whether you get birth control.”
 
Again gushing into the camera, Dunham (who has no known relationship to Obama's mother, Anne Dunham) says “My first time voting was amazing. It was this line in the sand. Before I was a girl. Now I was a woman. I went to the polling station and pulled back the curtain. I voted for Barack Obama.”
 
Pro-life advocates and political conservatives were quick to condemn the ad. Jill Stanek wrote on her website, “How low will they go? The Obama people apparently just can’t keep their minds off of lady parts,” remarked pro-life blogger Jill Stanek. “These people are just plain sex-obsessed.  This is an ad from the President of the United States?”  On the RedState website, Breeane Howe wrote, "There seems to be no low to which President Obama will sink in his desperate attempt to win reelection.  One has to wonder, is there any point at which the main stream media and the public get some self-respect and toss out this loser?  First he asked for your wedding gifts, then your yard sales and now he has asked for your daughters."
 
For his part, Ben Shapiro of Breitbart TV wrote: “It’s an astoundingly tasteless ad comparing voting for the first time to losing your virginity. Really. And Dunham recommends that if you’re going to have sex – er, vote – for the first time, you should really do it with President Barack Obama.”
