Lena Dunham is About as Cool as a Hot Flash

lena-dunham-snl-promo-inlineRemember when Saturday Night Live used to be funny? Yeah, me neither. But last Saturday, SNL brought humorless satire to a new low with their latest attempt at comedy in a skit featuring Lena Dunham, creator and star of the dreadful Girls series on HBO. Lena “Never Let a Good Opportunity To Get Naked Go To Waste” Dunham used this skit as an chance to flaunt her naked bod while trashing the “uncool” — in this case religious people, the Left’s favorite low hanging fruit of uncool. In one scene Dunham was literally mocking Genesis Garden of Eden story. Yeah, I’m still laughing.

While Lefty movies preaching immorality, anti-capitalism and anti-fracking have been big bombs at the box office, bible-themed movies are looking to be huge hits. In its first 10 days, Son of God earned over $45 million. The movie was based on History Channel’s hugely successful, The Bible. Next up is Darren Aronofsky’s blockbuster epic Noah, which opens at the end of the month. And let’s not forget Matthew McConaughey thanking  God first when he accepted his Best Actor award for Dallas Buyers Club at the Oscars on Mar 2, which went over with some people like the proverbial rat turd in the punchbowl. So of course the Left must declare open season on anything God or bible related.

So how did that skit featuring Dunham work out for SNL?

Deadline reports that despite the big promo push for Dunham’s hosting of SNL, which included appearances on NBC’s Today and Late Night with Seth Meyers, the show earned a 4.1 household rating nationally and a 2.1 in adults 18-49, down 11% and 19% respectively from last week’s Jim Parsons-hosted show, and landing the show its second-lowest rating of the season in both categories. So, maybe being cool is not so cool — at least not to the majority of Americans who don’t happen to live on the coasts.

Greg Gutfeld, in his latest book Not Cool sums up best: “The cool are the termites of life, infiltrating every nook and cranny, and destroying it from within. The cool report the news, write the scripts, teach our children, run our government – and each day they pass judgment on those who don’t worship their coolness. The cool fawn over terrorists, mock the military, and denigrate employers. They are, in short, awful people.”

With that, I am honored to be considered uncool by the cool.

Anita Gunn

California PolitiChick "Anita Gunn" is a closeted conservative working the entertainment business. Anita started at a major talent agency, assisting a well-known music agent, and is now a VP at a major movie studio. Anita grew up in a very liberal Jewish home, and bought the Utopian dream of a one world government and social justice for all. Anita did her best to "save the planet," pontificating about how the evil Republicans and greedy corporations were destroying the earth. 9/11 shook Anita's foundation and everything that she believed. By the time Obama burst into the scene in 2007, Anita was morphing into a conservative. Of course, coming out of the closet as a conservative in the entertainment industry is pretty much career suicide, she says, so in 2011, the name "Anita Gunn" was born. Anita has done commentary about the culture war on such radio shows as the Dr. Gina Show, Real Side with Joe Messina and Socialism is not an Option on Blog Talk Radio. Anita started a secret conservative Facebook group which has 1000 active members, and is part of another secret group of artists who behind such videos as Cruz Against the Machine. There are still some remnants from Anita's liberal days, including the love of Astrology and wearing platforms and bellbottoms--and yet signs of her conservative switch can be seen by her ever-present gun necklace. Anita says her goal is to help rebrand and hip up the conservative movement to include more artists, musicians, actors, gays and minorities and young people. Anita's belief is that if she saw the light, there are others who would also embrace the conservative movement, if only just shown the way. Follow Anita Gunn on Twitter @AnitaGunn1.
