Blood makes the best lube.

I remember the first time I ever voted. Spoiled the ballot.

Come to think of it, that's not too different from the first time I had sex...

Saw the ad this morning. I thought it was clever... not laugh out loud, but amusing. Those trotting out "treating women like parts" argument aren't getting it.

Once you vote black...

I think Obama has done a nice job during his first term.
I think Romney is a douche nozzle of the highest degree.
I am looking forward for voting this year.
 
2012-10-26 09:07:31 AM  
C'mon, baby--I'm just going to color in the oval a little. I won't even take the cap off.

If losing my virginity is anything like my first voting experience, I'm going to be hassled by three different old white guys about whether or not I belong there and then the first thingy I try to use will be broken.
 
2012-10-26 09:16:12 AM  
That is incredibily... inoffensive. Conservatives are so whiny.

Ah memories.

When reading conservatives' reaction to things like this, I have to wonder:

- Are most conservatives prudes that seldom (if ever) get it on, and when they do, stick to the missionary position in such a way that the receiving party is basically lying there like a dead fish, or
- are most conservatives freaks in the bedroom, but extremely ashamed of that fact?

I find it really hard to decide.
 
2012-10-26 09:21:59 AM  
If this is what the derp wing media are clutching their pearls over, I eagerly look forward to four more years of the Obama Administration trolling the shiat out of them. Keep up the good work, boys!
 
2012-10-26 09:26:10 AM  
If I vote more than once does that make me easy?

What was clever was when it was done the first time (ha!)....by Putin.

This is just really, really sad. It's one thing when some loon goes off on a tangent on his or her own, but this was from the actual Obama campaign? Isn't there some rule somewhere about Presidents needing to be over 15 years old? Seriously, how would O feel about his kids watching this, or even reading the transcript?

Romney should use a few million of his excess campaign cash and play this ad everywhere he can from now until the election. Yeah, it might cost him that theoretical undecided Oberlin comedy arts major, but it would ice the deal with everyone who's over 35, has a daughter, or believes that the Presidency should require a shred of dignity.

Cheron: If I vote more than once does that make me easy?


Ask Sandra Fluke, she's the expert on that. I'm still wondering how this ad will impact the Obama campaign's push for people to vote prematurely early.

ONOES!

A PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN WITH A SENSE OF HUMOR!!!

...AND HE'S BLACK, TOO!

Not impressed. That's just dumb. Doesn't begin to compare with the belittling message of Dunham's ad. But if you're ok with a campaign that thinks that women are so giddy, impressionable, and helpless that they can be persuaded to vote for Barack because giving out free birth control makes him sexy, then I guess you're too far gone to notice the difference.

And maybe Lena's forgotten about this, but the "first time" isn't always what it's cracked up to be. Perhaps not the greatest of metaphors for anyone who, you know, has done it before.

Wait til we get to the "losing your shank hole virginity" portion of the election.

I don't think it's your virginity the ad's talking about. The guy version of the commercial would read "Sorry, dude, it's not like the movies. You only get to be screwed by one at a time."

That's because they think a woman's first time having sex is on her wedding night where she is deflowered through a hole cut into a bed sheet.

How's Limbaugh doing these days, anyway? Are the shows better without all that advertising?
 
2012-10-26 09:57:43 AM  
Does this mean heterosexual women should only vote for men?

Those people should be less concerned about a Youtube ad and more concerned about the people who do this:

Wasn't Weaver telling us yesterday or the day before that Limbaugh was talking about Obama "giving away birth control to make Democratic women want to have sex with blah men"?

It looks like there's some truth to the "shills parrot talking points" idea. I'd never truly seen it in the wild until now.
 
2012-10-26 10:13:32 AM  
You shouldn't vote until you've registered to a certain party. Women should only vote for men and men for women. Once you've voted for someone you should never vote for anyone else. You should only vote if you want to elect an official (voting for any other purpose is a sin). Never talk about voting, remember it's a secret ballot; talking to your children voting strategies will only encourage poor choices in voting.

Your picture makes me think you're like Carolyn Maloney and Eleanor Holmes Norton...who left the hearing in protest so they didn't have to sit through the next panel*, and then stamped their feet in protest about the lack of women testifying. Almost makes one suspect you're more about the visual than the substance, but of course there'd be no truth to that...right?

*You might not know this because you get your news from internet memes, but the next panel of witnesses was not so chromosomally biased.

Are you saying that the Obama campaign is parroting Limbaugh's talking points? Your syntax makes my brain hurt.

You're honestly going with "I know you are, but what am I?" as a response? C'mon, man. Step your game up.

Ugh. As a woman i find this ad ridiculous. the only thing young women voters care about is birth control? How about talking to us like we are intelligent people with more then one issue on our minds? even better, stop acting like my vagina is the only thing i can think with.

Or they hate themselves intensely for that not being their first time.


Unplanned pregnancies are an economical issue, for individuals and society as a whole.

I'm more about the fact that republicans decided to hold even a single panel about contraception and fill it with male religious leaders, some of whom are celibate. Can you imagine the right wing's reaction if the democrats held a gun control panel and filled it entirely with women from the Million Mom March?

I'm going to assume you'll say the panel wasn't really about contraception, and was in fact about religious liberty, so the witnesses were appropriate. Because over the course of the last 2000 years when someone thinks about religions liberty they think of Christianity, right?

It's gonna hurt Obama. Those that think it will not are generalizing/projecting their own feelings to the general population.
