Eww: In OFA video, actress Lena Dunham likens voting for Obama to losing virginity

Let’s just get one thing straight: when creepy Jim Messina wants to talk to you about your “first time,” you run.

You run far, far away. Alas, 26-year-old writer and “Girls” actress Lena Dunham didn’t get the memo. In fact, she evidently embraced Messina’s creepiness. It was probably the OFA campaign manager’s winning smile that convinced her to do a promotional video encouraging young people to vote for Obama. In the video, Dunham compares her first time voting for Obama to losing her virginity — and she encourages other female first-time voters to see it the same way:

Shout-out to government-provided birth control? Check! There’s nothing sexier than that. Sandra Fluke is totally beaming right now.

The video went over very well with the coveted Julia set, and much fawnage ensued:

Julias everywhere agree: when it comes to being taken advantage of, President Obama is the only man for the job.

But, well, a lot of people thought it was just plain icky:

Oh, snap.

Well, that’s definitely one way to look at it.

Hmmm …

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. And, in this case, asshattery.
