My first time with Obama

“Before I was a girl, now I was a woman. I pulled back the curtain, I voted for Barack Obama.”

Have you seen the new TV ad Hollywood made for Barack Obama? It features Lena Dunham and her monologue on how she lost her voting virginity to Obama. Ugh…I think I slightly puked in my mouth watching it.

Oh where to begin??? Let’s start with Lena Dunham. She disgusts me. This 26 year old is writing, directing and acting in a trashy TV series titled Girls. By chance, I happen to watch the pilot episode on HBO. I was appalled, to put it lightly. The show features a bunch of self-centred, recent college grads having wreckless and frequent sex, using recreational drugs, while going through life surfing waves of depression. I felt like I should shower after watching the show. And get some PTSD therapy. And of course Lena was nomiated for 4 Emmys for the series. Typical Hollywood…

So this “talented” Lena (talented for making soft porn?), who is a beacon for the youth (by showing them how to be depressing, twenty-somethings?), has now decided to hit the airwaves and endorse President Obama. Well The Prez must be really desperate…

I find it interesting that she claims that she voted for the first time in 2008, and for Obama. At that time, she would have been 22. So Lena, where were you in 2004, when you were 18 and eligible to vote? Why so patriotic now? Did John Kerry not do it for you? Did he not offer you enough free birth control?

Is comparing to voting for the first time to losing your virginity tasteful? And to Obama’s campaign team- really? You all should be ashamed of yourselves. The air-waves are sex-saturated enough, and now we add election adverts as a new platform?

Feel free to read the entire script of the ad and judge for yourself. As for me? Unlike Ms. Dunham I lost my voting virginity the first chance I got, and I didn’t lose it for a fistful of condoms, and I didn’t have morning-after regret.
