Hey, I can see the logic (if you can call it that). You’ve got to appeal to that famous “youth vote” while also doing something to reverse the trend that sees women breaking big for Romney. So what do you tell them? That it’s “super uncool” to vote for Romney and, as a girl, a vote for Obama once cast turns you into “a woman.”
Really? This is what we’re resorting to? I’m honestly disgusted.
First: Who the heck is she? Second: What the heck is she SAYING?
If you’re unfamiliar with the name Lena Dunham, don’t feel bad. You’re not alone. Apparently, she’s an up-and-coming actress and the creator of an HBO show called “Girls” (yeah, I’ve never heard of it either).
But what does the ad title mean? We’re trying — Oh. Wait. Seriously, Team Obama?
Just so we’re absolutely clear: The ad kinda’-sorta’ jokingly equates voting for President Obama with losing one’s virginity. No, really. To that “really, nice guy” who isn’t Romney. Huh?
Meanwhile, the federal government has finally topped $16 trillion in debt, millions of Americans are out of work including the highest percentage of people under age 30 than ever tracked, the Middle East is on fire, the eurozone is in shambles, and dependency on food stamps is at an all-time high. Gas prices are soaring, college tuition is rising as fast as student loan debt, we can’t get jobs once graduated. But, you know, whatever. Free birth control is all that really matters apparently.
Interestingly enough, Communist Dictator (and genocide-issuing terrorist) Putin had a similar ad earlier this year. Guess the two buddies have been learning a lot from each other….
