I’m not gonna lie. I laughed at the new Lena Dunham (who?) ad for Obama. I love comedy and her delivery was perfect. And really, it was a perfect ad. It was the perfect ad to sum up the entirety of Obama campaign platform: vaginas.
Last October Republicans were shocked and perplexed when objective professional journalist George Stephanopolous asked then primary candidate Mitt Romney a question about banning birth control during one of the primary debates. It was an odd question and seemingly came out of nowhere. It rocked Romney back on his feet for a minute as he tried to digest the insanity of such an inquiry. The next day we were all wondering just which box of hair dye Stephanopolous had pulled that random question out of? Enter Sandra Fluke, begging for birth control on Capitol Hill and ushering in the War on Women. We’ve been knee deep in vagina ever since.
While most Americans were worrying about their shrinking incomes and rising living costs, the Democrat party – led by the President – could do nothing but talk about sex. We’ve been listening to whining about birth control, abortion, reproductive rights, abortion, birth control and abortion for the last six months. Obama is screwed on his record, so apparently he thought he’d distract America with a different kind of screwing. Then we were treated to giant, walking vaginas from Code Pink at the RNC, because nothing says, “Take me seriously” like humungous vaginas wearing glasses and a dude haircut.
And it’s not just literal vaginas we’re talking about–we’ve come to find out there are a whole bunch of “the same” posing as statesmen in Obama’s administration. From Obama’s wimp-tastic performance in his first debate against Romney, to walking gaffe-machine Joe Biden; from Eric Holder who has bobbed and weaved his way through the Fast and Furious investigation to Hilary Clinton and company, who did nothing to aid our ambassador in his horrific, dying moments and then blamed his death on a video.
Then we have the “Slut Vote” movement, in which women proudly declare themselves sluts in response to the now infamous Rush Limbaugh “Slutgate”. They read the Vagina Monologues on the steps of state capitols and proudly announce their abortions. Why is it that every time a liberal woman wants to talk about women voting their only analogy is sex? I mean, I’m all for sex (like most people, duh) and I’m not even saying it’s not an entertaining analogy…from time to time; but why is it that liberal women seem incapable of drawing any other comparison? Or talking about it in any other context other than abortion and birth control? Do they not even consider that there could be even ONE other issue women might be concerned about? I know many women in the U.S are concerned about abortion (many, if not most are on the pro-life side) but we are also concerned about putting gas in our cars, the price of putting food on the table for our families, and the massive loss of wealth the middle class has experienced that has forced many of us to run through the savings we had set aside for our children’s future. None of those issues has one thing to do with our vaginas and/or how we use them.
Frankly, it’s almost embarrassing to watch the party of “unity, equality and tolerance” consistently reduce an entire segment of the population to their sex organs. It’s tiring. It’s insulting. It’s hilarious. The women who tell pro-life Republicans to “stay out of our vaginas!” are the same women who support Obamacare, which will necessarily control what treatments you can and can’t get for said vagina. These are the same people who want us to leave their vaginas alone while constantly talking about things that you use your vagina for!
Look, there’s no reason to be ashamed of sex or sex organs or sex issues; but does it really need to be a part of the President’s main advertising push when so many Americans are out of work, out of luck and out of time? Is equating voting to losing your virginity (to Obama, ick!) really going to inspire that jobless college graduate with $100,000 of debt and bed in mom’s basement to get excited about Obama? As Michelle Malkin says: I vote with my ladySMARTS, not my ladyPARTS!
Go vote. Vote for Romney, vote for Obama, vote for your mother…just keep your private parts and your sex fantasies out of the voting booth. It’s unsanitary.
