Charlie Sykes: Sykes Writes

The Parodies Almost Write Themselves

Keep in mind that the Obama campaign actually paid money to put out this ad. Remind yourself that the president's campaign chose this as one of its closing arguments. Via the Blaze:

 

The Obama campaign on Thursday released an ad titled “Lena Dunham: Your First Time.”

First: Who? Second: What?

If you’re unfamiliar with the name Lena Dunham, don’t feel bad. You’re not alone (we had to look it up too). Apparently, she’s an up-and-coming actress and the creator of an HBO show called “Girls” (yeah, we’ve never heard of it either).

But what does the ad title mean? We’re trying — Oh. Wait. Seriously, Team Obama?

Just so we’re absolutely clear: The ad kinda’-sorta’ jokingly equates voting for President Obama with losing one’s virginity. No, really.

Meanwhile, the federal government has finally topped $16 trillion in debt, millions of Americans are out of work, the Middle East is on fire, the eurozone is in shambles, and dependency on food stamps is at an all-time high.

But, you know, whatever. Free birth control.
