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.

    What a disgusting ad, but typical for BO. He does seem obsessed with sex. Maybe he’s not getting any.

    • afvet4america

      You know my grandmother used to say that when a man is constantly on and on about sex and it’s issues it mean’s they are not getting any at home. She said same for when nosy neighbor women did the same thing. So you may have a good point there.

  • Kandeep

    Wow… yeah go with guy who’ll never marry you but will be sure to pay for that abortion or your pill… yep lovely ::gag::

    • Penmar

      The guy won’t pay for that abortion, that is what they think taxpayers are for in the US.

  • Love of Country

    These people have some serious issues.

  • radjahshelduck

    Now, now, twitchy, I think Ms. Dunham has a point. A lot of women lose their virginity to a nineteen year old guy who doesn’t really care about them at all except to the extent that he can get sex from them. That is quite similar to voting for a man who behaves like a nineteen year old and doesn’t really care about anybody except to the extent that he can get votes from them.

  • YanquiBob

    If her “first time” was in ’08, that means she didn’t bother voting in ’04 or ’06. You’re a real patriot there, Lena.

  • Kimberly O’Neal

    Our election system has hit an all time low, they claim they are for women but use sex to to get votes. Is it just me or does this belittle the same women they say they are protecting from Romney, I’m cunfuzzled lol.

    • Colleen Kelly

      And these same women are offended by binders. You can only go so far when you rely solely on your lady parts. Very cunfuzzling lol.

      Dunham signed a $3.5 mil book deal in Oct, aka, the 1%. Dems don’t see the hypocrisy and irony in using rich young celebs to tout $9 a month contraceptives to young women with more college debt than they can ever repay and few job opportunities.

      • Gallatin

        Book deal really? Does anyone think she an actually put that many words together?

    if losing her virginity is like voting for obama, she did it wrong.

      I dunno. You’re full of lust one moment, and pain and agony for four days(years) afterwards…seems…kinda right to me.

            and upon further review, who am i to judge how people like their sex… if bending over and taking one up the tail pipe is your thing, vote obama.

  • disappearing moderate

    A letdown? A disappointment? Feeling used? A drunken mistake? Okay, I can see some of those unfortunately all too common reactions to voting for O.

  • http://twitter.com/bloodyhellmate Craig Edwards

    Yikes, did Obama give Lena Dunham any CHANGE for cab fare after her 1st time?

  • http://twitter.com/bloodyhellmate Craig Edwards

    Also, in terms of Political ads, I thought Carly Fiorina’s DemonSheep ad was stupid, but this one wins.

  • http://www.facebook.com/rightstuffnovelties Right Stuff

    Hmm, I would have compared voting for a historic failure and liar to that of a virgin being knocked up by an Occupy Wall Street deadbeat who turns around and sues her for a place to stay; not to mention the cost of the glow-in-the-dark condom he found in the alley. Liberals have lost their minds and this ad proves just how out of touch and desperate they are!

    This ad is beyond vile. I didn’t think Obama could sink any lower. How wrong I was.

  • dennylee60

    So you should lose your virginity to a guy who makes lots of promises that he can’t/didn’t keep, borrow lots of money from everyone to pay for stuff, lies about what he has done in the past, blame others for his failure, and will say anything to get you to do what he wants. Great…

  • http://twitter.com/lucia_Strong LUCIA ARMSTRONG

    Yes, you lost “it”! Four years ago to someone who you thought cared. And since then, you have been abused by him. He spends all of your money, makes promises he never intended keeping, and then he lies to you and every one about it…. Time to grow up and have relationships with “real” men!

  • Paula Noakes

    I wonder who she voted for in 2004? She’s 26 now, subtract 4 she’s 22 in 2008, subtract 4 she’s 18 in 2004 and should have voted. Huh. No thrill? Proud to say MY 18 yo daughter has voted Romney/Ryan. (She’s in college, absentee voting.)

  • AMSilver

    This ad actually gives me hope. Mostly because there’s still a week and a half to go, and Obama has nowhere to go now but down. If desperation makes his campaign do things like this – I think the only votes he’ll get this election will be from people who have already voted. And yes, but Nov 6, those who cast their votes early for Obama will feel dirty, misused, lied to, and too embarrassed to tell anyone what they did.

    Um, the 2008 election was my third time voting, and she’s the same age as me. Maybe she didn’t start voting until she was older, but I find it more likely that she’s full of it.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/KDX6MKQ3V5OZ3RG5FXUQIAJ5DU John

    This reminds me of the campaign a few years ago where a bunch of liberal women had T-shirts printed up that said, “I only sleep with Democrats”. The dirty little secret is a that a lot of us men figured out long time ago that these are the women to run from: the ones who will use sex (or anything else) as a weapon to get what they want. I’ll wager that they only “sleep with Democrats” because they can’t get anyone else. We aren’t that stupid, or we have the presence of mind to apply a cost-benefit analysis to them–and find them lacking.

  • bicentennialguy

    Maybe Messina should have appeared in the video instead….I’d lay money on the fact that his “virtue” remains intact.

  • orringtonmom (D)

    the first time should be with a man who understands women. i’m not sure these women understand women. i find a guy who is good with money incredibly sexy. she didn’t mentioned that in the ad…

  • Steve_J

    The first time she’s implying requires two people to be in the same space at the same time. Voting requires a person be in that space alone. Is she implying her first time she was alone with only her imagination?
