Here's the ad:
A young attractive woman (actress Lena Dunham) talks about her "first time"….. the first time she voted for Obama.
It's cute, and a little edgy (and not too original)
Well, conservatives are clutching the pearls and clearing the shelves at Fainting Couches R' Us (and just as they were recovering from Obama's use of the word bullshiter, too!)
CNN contributor Erick Erickson came unglued:
What's worse than the Obama as is that some people really like it. We do live in a fallen, depraved world destined for the fire.

Romans 1 teaches that when God turns a people loose the first sins they embrace are the sexual lusts of the flesh.

And there were others. Ace from Ace of Spades:
It's not funny, it's not cute, and it's not persuasive, unless you think the important issues in this campaign are Binders Full of Birth Control.
It underlines the essential triviality of Obama and his Government Client & Upper Upper Class White Voter agenda. There is nothing to his campaign except very small social-progressive appeals to people who are simply not affected by the economy, whether they are too poor to notice a bad economy, immunized from the economy by being a government worker, or so rich they have nothing at all to fear from a bad economy.
It continues to be weird that Democrats want so bad to have sex with their cult leader. But I guess that's a central part of the cult thing.
Kathryn Lopez: "It's as if every day the Obama campaign gives me another reason to see how clearly we a new president — for the sake of our politics and our culture."
Adrian Gray: "That Lena Dunham ad was a very risky move for any campaign. And even more surprising it was approved by the father of two girls."
Liz Mair: "So voting for Obama is like losing your virginity? A dude cooked that one up, right? Because for us girls, that means you're saying it's painful."
Stacy Washington: "The #MyFirstTime ad is the height of vulgarity. Tell me #Democrat Moms: Is this how you want the president talking to your daughters?"
Andrea Chapman: "You don't want your first time to be with #Obama because his stimulus package didn't deliver as promised."
Kat McKinley: "Does one get the feeling Hugh Hefner is running the Obama campaign?"
Kristina Ribali: "Be careful ladies . . . You don't want to be punished with an Obama."
Kevin Eder: "I've now watched it four times. I refuse to believe that it's a real, actual thing." He adds, "Dear college kids: trust me on this, having a job when you graduate is WAY more 'cool' than voting for Barack Obama. I PROMISE."
Moe Lane: "I know I'm supposed to be shocked by Obama's new NSFW ad, but instead I'm embarrassed. It's like walking in on my parents having sex. I mean, you know that your parents — or your President — is aware of sex. You just don't need to VISUALIZE it."
NY Dem49: "Word of advice for Obama, don't create an ad you wouldn't be comfortable with your daughter reciting."
This from the party who thinks that God gift-wraps babies as prizes for the lucky ladies who get raped?
Go check the female gap, Republicans. It's still, and always will be, heavily Democratic. And this is why — because of your freakout and disparagement over sexually active women.
Anyway, I wouldn't worry. Cute Lena Dunham vid may be hit with young voters. The pushback from offended white males over 55 isn't going to change their minds.
UPDATE: By the way, it's no different than this ad from the Republican National Committee:
Well, Lesley Gore has something to say:
IN YOUR FACE UPDATE #2:
Who said this?
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.
