The Lena Dunham ad that filled countless fainting couches

fainting_couch-300x204

Apparently, the ad below has caused Republicans to triple their usual order for fainting couches. Kelly Fenton, deputy chair of the Minnesota Republican Party, tweeted yesterday that Satan must now be serving as Obama’s campaign adviser. The always reliable Erick Erickson of RedState.com preached that it’s evidence “we live in a fallen world destined for hellfire.”

That noted defender of American womanhood and feminine virtue, Rush Limbaugh, even denounced the ad as “an insult to women everywhere.” There is no truth to the rumor that he and his pals then boarded a plane bound for the Dominican Republic, copious supplies of Viagra in their baggage. Or maybe there is, I wouldn’t want to speculate.

Anyway, here’s the ad:

The ad won’t appear on mainstream TV, and probably not on TV anywhere at all. It is designed to be shared, on Facebook and elsewhere, by those for whom it is a target audience and who, given the comments of leading Republicans such as Richard Mourdock of Indiana and Todd Akin of Missouri, might have a lot at stake in this election. It was posted on Youtube yesterday, and already has more than a million views.

As for those outraged by the decline of today’s young people well, we’ve been down this road many many times before, now haven’t we?

“It’s shocking, Maude, I do declare this country is destined for ….”

“Hush Edgar!! Hush! Get away from the TV, you old man, I think he’s gonna do it again!!

“Easy tats?” Hahaha! Clearly you know nothing about Lena Dunham. She’s a brilliant young women, writer, producer and actress, though her acting is not the main thrust of her work. Her show “Girls” is the ANTI-”Sex and the City.” Where the latter is pure estrogen-driven fantasy about clothing, shoes, and relationships that bear no resemblance to reality, Dunham’s portrayal of young women and real life in NYC is so realistic, you’ll want to take a shower after watching the first episode.

Dunham courageously confronts the reality of being a freshly-minted adult: beauty, idealism, and astounding ignorance, punctuated by the absolute worst choice in any multiple-choice decision — all in pursuit of love, adventure, and the awesomeness of being “all grown up” now. Far from glorifying the joys of being young and promiscuous, she walks the viewer through the hallway of stupidity that leads to it, and then shows with excruciating detail the awkward, painful, and often brutal consequences that follow.

Oh yeah, and Ms. Dunham is candid about how that compares to her personal life: She’s chosen to remain a virgin.

Judge a book by the cover art, and all you prove is that you don’t actually read.

That young lady reminds me of a young Rachel Maddow…more scare tactics…I guess she is not concerned about getting a job after college graduation..

Appreciate your comments about Big Pharma…one of the reasons the PelosiCare will not work because the cuts will never materialize…The main problem is that the DC idiots got in bed with Pharma, insurance companies, and providers to get this “deal” done…They will never squeeze costs out of the system…the incentives are all wrong and will work against all of us.

Taking the margins out of insurers pockets is great thought but there is a reason they have to spend less on benefits….unlike our GOVT, they actually have to be solvent (via solvency tests by state to maintain licensing)….It a very delicate balancing act…

Condoms, physicals and mamograms and the like absolutely need to be available but despite and adverse impact on my business…single payer is way to go…of course, that will cost more and add trillions to our unfunded liabilities but it is better than government getting deeper in bed with pharma et al’s money bags..

Yesterday I heard about this ad from one of our fainting-couchers. I went to Obama’s website to see it, but it didn’t appear anywhere prominently enough for me to find, so I kinda forgot about it.

But now that I’ve watched the video, two observations.

1. It’s really a sweet ad. I say this as the father of a young lady who’ll be of voting age wayyy sooner than I care to admit.

2. The dumb sexist buffoons on the right who take offense (I’m sure not all of them are–heck, some probably wish they’d thought of it first), well, it just reminds me of how they manage to embarrass themselves one way or another in this realm. Last time in 2008 it was the collective stiffy they all got for Sarah Palin. It’s always somethin’.

——————————————————————-

If one cannot muster up the courage to break through given social norms as innocuous as Elvis’ hips moving or this harmless, playful television ad on encouraging voting, how can one possibly break through – in one’s thinking – to see that all are inherently equal, and speak out and write for that future which will ensure that – that will come. It is much safer, and easier, just to accept given norms, even in their injustices and repression, such as the role of women, minorities, workers, and underclasses throughout world to be resigned to their accepted and acceptable lot. That is not the future I want to see in my egalitarian vision. Below I break through some “given” thinking, regarding sexuality and the work ethic, for any who might want to delve deeper in these areas with me.

As a parent of teenagers, I can tell you this ad would get their attention and actually make them think about voting as the important act it is. Yeah, it’s got a sexual reference, but what doesn’t in teenagers’ lives? It’s always been that way, and from the inimitable Elvis to the current heartthrobs of teenagers everywhere, the sex appeal and innuendo has always been popular. We need to adjust our knickers and get over ourselves if we think this is somehow indicative of a society spiraling down into the pit of hell. It’s not- it’s just a society being honest and being given more right to talk about how people really feel. Big deal.

I used to work with someone who had been an OAT (on-air talent) for them. She quit because she found that everyone around her at work got too excited about horrible destructive weather.She started thinking about them as vampires and floods/hurricanes/tornados were their life-blood.

Georgia maybe a swing state before its said and done.

Probably 2020, and only because of Hispanics and Republican attitudes toward them.

Good point, Hiram. I wonder — did Sarah Palin issue a stern lecture to Coulter for her use of the word “retard”? I’m sure she must have and I just missed it….

RW, the ad isn’t intended to convince people to vote for Obama; it’s intended to motivate those already leaning that way to actually turn out and vote

No doubt, but if we believe the premise here and the numbers being bandied about it probably isn’t working. We hear from the usual suspects that it’s anywhere from 3.8 to 6 million people being targeted and the premise of the post is that the “right” is all in a dither over the ad then we learn that the ad has a million views. One would have to presume that many of those come from these dithered up right wingers.

Anyway, as I said to begin with we’ll find out soon enough and the dock needs a little attention so I’ll bid you all an adieu.

And before anything says “larry, you’re crazy”, just remember, Mr. Romney did not win in the Georgia primary and a lot of people still consider Mormonism a cult. Especially here in this state. If I remember correctly , Mr. Romney finished a distant second or third to Mr. Gingrich.

So, i dont think this state is a gimmie for the Repubs. Should be interesting come Nov. 6th. Georgia could be the Virginia of 2008.

Larry, a friend of mine reports that the evangelical radio stations so popular in South Georgia are filled with denunciations of the “Mormon cult”. I don’t think that’s going to make a huge difference in the vote totals, but interesting nonetheless.

larry; I keep seeing here, and I keep hearing from floks in the “real world” the possibility that Georgia could become a swing State. I still don’t see it. I would LOVE for it to happen because it would mean that folks are tired of the thief Nathan Deal, but I don’t see it.

i’m more interested in seeing the so called “charter school” money grab being defeated than I am seeing Obama win in Georgia (or even in the US to be honest). I see more harm in that *amendment* than I do in who our president is.

More like a fainting couch to fall on from laughter.

Are we sure this wasn’t a campaign add for Bill Clinton?

One of the problems with the American electorate is that way to many people actually watch political ads.

moonbat, I hope so. My heart says yes but my brain says no. I got my daughters illness so I’ll probably fall asleep watching the game lol. I need some whiskey, lemon, and honey, I have the green tea………..
