Voting for Obama Is like First-Time Sex in the City
Cyberspace is all atwitter about a new Obama campaign-paid ad starring HBO series Girls star Lena Dunham entitled "My first time was with Obama." The ad uses a sexual double-entendre that equates Dunham voting for the first time with losing her virginity to the very married Barack Obama.
Dunham has been nicknamed the "voice of a generation" for her show's funny portrayal of life as a middle- to upper-class romantic woman living in New York City. Therefore, it's not too far-fetched to call this ad "Voting for Obama is like First Time Sex in the City."
The twenty-something HBO star says, "Your first time shouldn't be with just anybody. You want to do it with a great guy."
Lena does not expound upon how she knows that Barack Obama is a "great guy," or whether her actual "first time" really was with a "great guy."
Nonetheless, Dunham instructs virginal females both in and outside the voting booth by telling them that "your first time" should be with "someone who really cares about and understands women -- a guy who cares whether you get health insurance and specifically whether you get birth control."
It's true -- before losing your virginity to a "great guy," it's always good to first find out how he feels about whether or not you have health insurance and whether or not you brought along your free birth control. In other words, whether it's losing your virginity or voting, "your lady parts" depend on picking the right guy.
Lena also doesn't explain how she knows that Barack Obama "really cares about and understands women." Is it his smooth line, his engaging smile, his willingness to pay for the campaign ad, or his major line of bull? Because if those are the criteria the virtuous Ms. Dunham uses to measure whether a potential lover cares about her or not, then she's the type of easy-sleazy that men joke about when women aren't around.
However, what Lena does know is that when pulling the lever, "[t]he consequences are huge." Huge consequences are certainly applicable, whether choosing a man for sex or voting for the first time.
While the "first time" ad is shocking to some, it's really quite telling. Barack Obama was actually willing to pay for an ad that admits what he's truly good at: majorly screwing America. Better yet, majorly screwing the American women who think he has their best interests at heart.
Obama's screwing started four years ago with the help of semi-virginal voters like Lena Dunham, and he is hoping to keep up the screwing for another four years. Unfortunately, while it might have been good for Obama, Ms. Lena is too inexperienced and naïve to realize that her first time wasn't as good she thought it was.
And if it's a happy ending with Barack Obama that Lena Dunham and the twenty-somethings she's appealing to are looking for, she and the "Girls" are setting themselves up to be very disappointed.
