Lena Dunham’s Questionable Obama Endorsement

Posted Friday October 26, 2012 11:15 AM GMT

She’s never been one for worrying what others think, and Lena Dunham recently dropped her own version of a campaign commercial for President Barack Obama.

The “Girls” creator/actress used suggestive language and double-entendres in order to make the process of voting seem sexual.

Dunham began, "The first time shouldn't be with just anybody. You want to do it with a great guy. Someone who really cares about and understands women."

She added that the ‘first time’ should be with "a guy who cares whether you get health insurance and specifically whether you get birth control. The consequences are huge."

"You want to do it with a guy who brought the troops out of Iraq. You don't want a guy who says, 'Oh hey, I'm at the library studying,' when really he's out not signing the Lilly Ledbetter act," Lena quips. "Or thinks that gay people should never have beautiful, complicated weddings like the kind we see on Bravo or TLC all the time. Think about how you want to spend those four years. In college age time, that's 150 years."

Dunham wraps up, "My first time voting was amazing. It was this line in the sand — before I was a girl, now I was a woman. I voted for Barack Obama.”
