So about this Lena Dunham ad on behalf of Barack Obama that has conservatives in a tizzy because it uses some mild innuendo to compare first-time voting to losing one's virginity — who can we call in for a calm, measured response?
What's worse than the Obama as is that some people really like it. We do live in a fallen, depraved world destined for the fire.

Jesus, Erick. Do you also faint at reruns of the Golden Girls? Those are twice as raunchy. If it makes you feel any better, just imagine it as an anti-Obama commercial. Think about it. Voting for Obama is like losing your virginity because…
* For strong advocates of civil liberties, it's a bit painful.
* Considering the youth of many Obama volunteers, it was some pimply teenage boy who goaded you into it.
* Comparing your own experience to that of Obama's most ardent fans, you'll wonder what the big deal was.
I'd take this further but thinking about Erick Erickson and sex is making me yearn for that world-destroying inferno to get on with it, already.
