Sexy Starlet: Wants Head of State

Postby Ned Flanders » Fri Oct 26, 2012 4:15 pm

Is this babe a relative of Obama or "Julia's" slutty sister?

Either way, the pimp hand has reached out and slapped Mz. Dunham very hard. She wants Obama to be her "first"...

"In the Internet ad, titled “Your First Time,” Lena Dunham speaks to the camera and says: "The first time shouldn't be with just anybody. You want to do it with a great guy. Someone who really cares about and understands women."

It’s not raunchy or explicit, so critics have to make a real effort to find reasons to complain. But we're in the final days of a close election. Inflated outrage is the currency of the realm.

I finally watched the ad and I'm honestly at a loss as to why anyone would find this offensive. I mean, if you're offended that 50% of Americans still support Barack Obama, by all means, be offended. But calling this young woman "slutty" for reaching out to college-aged girls and encouraging them to vote is quite a stretch.

Lena Dunham Loses Her Virginity

Wow. Outrageous, huh? Rush Limbaugh actually managed to take time out from hyperventilating about Libya yesterday for about two minutes to complain about this ad. He didn't call her a slut, though. Left that to Ned.

Sigh... Do I have to leave it to the leftist Wonkette to explain it to you?!

The Dunham ad is patronizing. The Reagan ad wasn't.

Inflated? I'm not even outraged. It's not like the ad is talking (down) to me.

In addition to sarcasm, it looks like Meade doesn't understand what "patronizing" means either. (Unless he means that Lena Dunham is acting as a patron, in which case, yes, good usage, if also somewhat pointless.)

At this point, I'm starting to think Meade might be a Russian spy with a less-than-stellar command of the English language.
