It wasn't too hard to be tickled by Lena Dunham's innuendo-laden "get out the vote" video comparing the first time voting to the first time having sex. "You want to do it with a great guy. It should be with a guy with beautiful … somebody who really cares about and understands women," she implored. Ha, ha, funny, right? Oh, that is, unless you have a log-sized stick crammed up your ass.
Now the story has not just become about Dunham's video for the Obama 2012 campaign, but the (batshit) negative (over-)reaction to it from conservatives.
A writer for the conservative BigGovernment.com copped a paternalistic pose, accusing President Obama of "exploiting" a 26-year-old grown-ass woman. Writes Ben Shapiro:
"[The president] exploits [young women] for insane commercials comparing losing your virginity with voting. Obama has young daughters. But that didn't stop him from releasing this commercial. Because this is what Obama thinks of your daughters."
An editor for Breitbart.com tweeted similarly paternalistic handwringing:
“How could a president with two young, blossoming daughters release an ad as disgusting as this”?
Then there were the conservatives who called Obama a "pervert" and decreed the provenence of Dunham's ad "somewhere betwee the gutter and hell." At least someone who might have a sentence of humor joked there is "no morning-after pill to undo the damage" of voting Democratic.
Lena Dunham herself is just chilling like she normally does:
It tickles me to no end that while my twitter feed was blowing up with conservative hate I was literally hanging out in a pile of bisexuals.— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) October 26, 2012
Bisexuals? I think you mean "just confused," Lena Dunham.
