Michelle Malkin: I’m ‘Bored’ By Dunham Ad, ‘Get Your Heads Out Of Your Lady Parts’

Yesterday, “Girls” creator Lena Dunham put out a light-hearted Obama endorsement ad in which she likens voting to sex. The video, which has been available to the public for less than 24 hours, has already generated a lot of buzz and discussion, but conservative commentator Michelle Malkin is “bored” by the clip and says it only proves her point that liberal females need to “[g]et your heads out of your lady parts.”
In a column on her personal website, Malkin says of the young New Yorker’s Obama video, “‘I’m not ‘outraged.’ I’m bored. These privileged young Democrat celebs haven’t stopped yapping and giggling about birth control and their swoon-worthy birth control supplier in the White House all year.”
The Dunham ad, which includes Dunham saying women should vote for someone who “really cares about and understands women, whether you get health insurance and specifically whether you get birth control,” is another left-leaning individual’s attempt to reduce females to their private parts, Malkin says:
“The Dunham ad is the lady parts’ brigades jump-the-shark moment — the ultimate trivialization of women’s issues. It is a damning indictment of the Obama campaign’s failed strategy that they have desperately sought last-ditch help from a self-absorbed, Sandra Fluke soul sister while the Republic crumbles.
Psssst. Liberal ladies and Obama strategists. Get your heads out of your lady parts.”
Seriously. Health insurance coverage, access to cancer screenings, and affordable birth control are very important to me, but I don’t want to be told yet again that I should cast my vote based on which guy has my best reproductive interests in mind. Give me something new and stop reducing me to my gender, and while you’re at it, don’t steal ideas from conservatives while bashing one.
