Fair warning: This is a racy post and a racy topic. I inserted the “Continue Reading” button for a reason. Don’t click on it unless you’ve got your big boy/girl pants on.
UPDATE: It makes sense now…
It’s a rare, good day that you can use an opponent’s own political ad as proof that his policies suck, he’s running on fumes, and all he’s got left is trolling the bottom of the barrel for voters too stupid to know what they’re doing.
If you haven’t seen the ad, fair warning, it is racy… An unattractive young actress uses innuendo to vaguely compare getting laid for the first time to voting for Barack Obama. I’m not kidding. Now, if you can watch that ad and think, “YES, that ad makes me want to vote for Barrack Obama! That makes up my mind!”, it says a lot about you, and not much of it is very good:
Now, in fairness, this is a super PAC ad. But to repeat a point made on Powerline, who in the name of Sam Hill thought that was a good idea?
On the other hand, I do have to thank the PAC and campaign et al. for the memories.
You see, back in college, I had a “first time” of my own with a young woman who looked surprisingly like that very actress! Now I’ve made it quite clear that I was a horrendous drunk back then. Well, I found myself, due largely to beer goggles, alone in my dorm room with the young lady… You can imagine the way things were going. Surprisingly, I had a moment of drunken lucidity… for the first time!
I realized in my drunken haze that if I woke up in bed with her the next morning, I would eventually have to chew my arm off to get away from her…so I pretended like I passed out until she left. It took a few minutes, but it worked, and I was back at the party 15 minutes later. Whew! Boy was that trip down memory lane fun. Thanks Obama campaign!
On another note, do check out the original post on Powerline and check out the comments section… My favorite: “If Obama wins, we’re all f**ked”… That’s priceless.
UPDATE: It’s starting to make sense now… From The Des Moines Register – a paper than endorsed Jimmy Carter – both times.) again, by way of Powerline.
“American voters are deeply divided about this race. The Register’s editorial board, as it should, had a vigorous debate over this endorsement. Our discussion repeatedly circled back to the nation’s single most important challenge: pulling the economy out of the doldrums, getting more Americans back in the workforce in meaningful jobs with promising futures, and getting the federal government on a track to balance the budget in a bipartisan manner that the country demands.
Which candidate could forge the compromises in Congress to achieve these goals? When the question is framed in those terms, Mitt Romney emerges the stronger candidate.”
The Des Moines Register is newest on a growing list of otherwise liberal papers that are endorsing Mitt Romney. By liberal, The Des Moines Register has endorsed every Democrat who’s run since 1972.
