Democrats launch sexy new ad, conservatives upset


A suggestive new ad launched by the Democrats in the final push leading up to the Nov. 6 presidential election stars Lena Dunham from the HBO show Girls, and has conservative Republican supporters all riled up.

In the ad, the language Dunham uses to talk about her “first time” makes it sound like she’s talking about sex. But, surprise, she’s talking about her first time voting for Barack Obama.

“Your first time shouldn’t be with just anybody. You want to do it with a great guy,” she tells the camera, as soft piano music plays in the background.

It becomes fairly apparent, however, that Dunham is talking about politics when she moves on to say things like, “You want to do it with a guy who brought the troops out of Iraq. You don’t want to do it with a guy who says ‘oh hey I’m at the library studying’ when really he’s out not signing the Lilly Ledbetter Act.”

Conservatives have been out in full force against the ad, with one Conservative blogger calling the ad “disgusting” and noting that Vladimir Putin had a similar ad that compared voting for the first time to losing virginity.

Conservative columnist John Podhoretz said, on Twitter: “I am a great admirer of Lena Dunham’s but I don’t think appealing to undecided voters in the Midwest is in her skill set.”

Notably, the ad makes a direct appeal to young women, just as polls show that Obama no longer commands his once-great lead with female voters.

And, just for fun, here’s the Russian ad this new ad is being compared to.

  1. Obama one is funny, Putin one was vaguely creepy.

  2. they have no shame.

  3. no shame is blatantly changing your positions from debate to debate

    • yeah that sounds about right for the democrats

    • You people all believe the same thing…

      You all believe your weenies come from heaven and that this gives you some sanctified right to pass your collection plate at gunpoint for the gods of communism (yourselves).

      Your morals, your code, it’s a bad joke dropped at the first sign of trouble… You’re only as good as the world allows you to be.

      When the chips are down, you “civilized” people will eat each other.

      You see, I’m not a monster, I’m just ahead of the curve.

      You have all these rules and you think they’ll “save” you, when the only sensible way to live in this world is without rules.

      I already told you, I’m not here to “save” anybody… I’m like a dog chasing cars, I wouldn’t know what to do with one if I caught it…

      You’re a schemer, a schemer trying to control your little world… I’m not a schemer, I try to show you schemers how pathetic your attempts to control things really are.

      I introduce a little anarchy, upset the established order and everything becomes chaos.

      I’m an agent of chaos… And you know the thing about chaos?

      It’s fair…

      Nobody panics when things do according to plan, even if the plan is horrifying.

      If I were to tell the press millions of Americans would be blown up by an Iranian nut job or that Democrats have stolen their entire life savings with bailouts and Obamacare, nobody panics because it is all part of the plan…

      But if I say a few homosexuals in San Francisco are upset over their little wee wees, why, everyone just loses their minds!

  4. funny that they would compare to putin instead of their demi-god Regan who did the same thing. Wierd.
