Official New Obama Ad: ‘Losing Your Voting Virginity’


Obama’s newest campaign ad features the talented Lena Dunham (creator of HBO’s Girls) and is about losing your voting virginity. The Cornerites have described this as already as awkward, super uncool, and derivative. But Charles Mitchell, over on Evangelicals for Mitt, addressed the religious aspect of it. He writes:

While very little in politics shocks and enrages me today, it does shock and enrage me that the President of the United States would approve and promulgate an ad with blatantly sexual content (not to mention sexual content that denigrates the traditional ethics of the President’s own faith).

In fact, Lena tweeted this to announce her new ad on behalf of the president:

Wouldn’t you assume a Christian, married president with two daughters would not want an actress speaking about him in this manner? (If you haven’t seen it, you can watch it here.)

Can anyone imagine Mitt Romney stooping to this level?
