Is voting like sex? Lena Dunhamís first time with Obama
The Washington Post ^ | Friday, October 26, 2012 | Alexandra Petri

Voting is like sex.

People make videos about it and post them online. And then everyone argues about whether that was a good idea.

In my continual quest to have every possible position on the subject of Lena Dunham, I think I like her latest video, a get-out-the-vote effort. It’s cute and tongue-in-cheek and doesn’t outstay its welcome. With the minor objection that I am fundamentally opposed to the whole concept of get-out-the-vote videos, it works.

Still, given Lena Dunham’s mastery of awkward sex, you’d think she would have made a more honest appraisal.

“My first time voting was amazing,” she gushes. “It was this line in the sand. Before I was a girl; now, I was a woman.”

“cute”

It’s totally revolting and makes me want to throw up. If you are the mother of a young lady, it is deeply disgusting.

Dem campaigning this year has set many new records for low class.

I just throw up in my mouth a little at the idea of either of them having sex.

Hmmm, I wonder if people know that even if they vote for Romney, they can still get an STD. (Socialist-transmitted disease)

Never heard of her, but apparently she’s an idiot. Obama’s base.

She’s given all the gay boys erotic ideas about the First Homo.

If this brainless woman-girl thinks that voting is like sex...then she has been doing one or the other completely wrong ever since she was old enough to do either.

I just watched this ad. The whole come-on seemed like they had dug up some of Frank Marshall Davis’ more lecherous writings. “Hey, little girl, let me give you a ride to the polls.”

Her only claim to fame is a show on HBO where she plays a co-dependent, immature perv that depends on her parents for money, and dates something that is supposed to be a guy that has no job and is a total douche.

Toss simulated masturbation, multiple nude scenes, references to how abortion is cool, and a really disturbing scene involving talk of a underage sex fantasy and you get why the left thinks she is “cool”.

If she was doing either one with me she'd sure as heck know the right way.

“There are, after all, a lot of similarities between the two. If you ask for ID first, it tends to ruin the mood.”

So does asking for the credit card? There are endless ways to prostitute oneself.

Are you aware Reagan made a similar campaign ad? I wasn’t but heard it today, and sure enough he did.

Reagan made a joke about voting Republican. I'm not sure how anyone could construe a sexual connotation to the quip.:

“I know what it’s like to pull the Republican lever for the first time, because I used to be a Democrat myself, and I can tell you it only hurts for a minute and then it feels just great.”

Are you drunk?

First, it wasn't an ad, and second, only young people with their fully-formed gutter minds would ascribe a sexual connotation to that statement. Reagan certainly wouldn't have. Young people today have no knowledge of a time when every statement was not a double entendre. Young people today are so corrupted they see and hear filthy sex talk in everything.

And the Democrats have their professional equivicators out in force on the web today, because I saw one poster try to equate the Beirut Marine Barracks suicide bombing to the Benghazi incident.

I hate being called a troll. Review my posts. I have had my screen name for a long time. Don’t make such snap judgments. Or join me on FB if you have any doubts.

The left has a weird fascination with deviant sexual behaviour. What the heck is with them and their obsession with perversion? They’re always in your face with promiscuity, homosexuality, dressing up as female body parts, public nudity, etc. What is this about?

I’m surprised they asked her to do this, or perhaps she offered herself lol. Lena is a talented writer, but her loser persona on the show is so blurred with Lena in real life... I’m not sure how it’s a positive having her promote voting for Obama, besides which women who do identify with her... were already voting for him.

Exactly. If this is what Obama must do to secure his base, Romney wins in a landslide.
