#MyFirstTime–Best Political Ad…EVAH?

You know what’s going to definitely win over undecided voters in Ohio? Poorly delivered improv hipster jokes. “Look at me. I’m a sad meek little nerdlington with a double Master’s Degree in Gender Studies and Bong-Hits. Watch as I fop around obliquely mentioning Obama’s accomplishments while comparing the act of voting to losing your v-card to a corrupt lying politician.”
Or is the ad directed at comedy geeks? The Sarah Silverman caucus is getting some serious fan-service here. Somebody in Chicago thinks this is the big voting bloc that’ll put St. Barry over the top in this election. Axelrod really needs to lay off ‘Funny or Die’.
By the way, I have no idea who Lena Dunham is. Nor do I care. If I’m not a fan of Rachel Maddow, why would I be stoked to watch her less-talented body double?
I guess Ms. Dunham is on some cable TV show. That’s cool. If she’s getting paid anything over minimum wage to be not-funny on tv, she’s guilty of theft. Also I want to hire her obviously amazing super-agent.
Let’s get beyond the creepiness of the clip. It was made by card-carrying members of the Left’s great religious movement. One of the most important tenets of the faith is the hyper-sexualization of their Great Super Cocksman. From Candy Crowley to Bill Maher, many progressives are dying to make babies with Barack Obama. Lena Dunham is just the latest liberal to profess her love for the cutest widdle political puppy dog.
No, what’s really great about this clip is the undertone of sweaty desperation. Team Barry spent time and money on a vulgar premise yawned out by a D-list television actress that nobody cares about because they thought it would move the needle towards Obama. Let me repeat–this is an ad they believed would help convince a measurable quantity of the electorate to vote for the President.
Obama didn’t toot his horn over his stewardship of the economy or his handling of the Benghazi attack. None of those stellar presidential victories made the cut. But half-assed ‘War On Women’ bullshit which fell flat with voters last March? Lets roll with that.
Mitt Romney wants to talk about creating jobs, cutting the deficit and reigning in runaway entitlements. Barack Obama wants to turn the polling booth into a Democrat Party boudoir. Which one sounds reasonable and which one sounds repellent and intrusive?
