On Saturday, Clo Ewing of Obama for America, sent an email to supporters with a link to the now-infamous ad that compares first-time voting to losing one’s virginity. The email, however, advised voters to be ready for their “second, or third” time.
“If this is your first time voting, you should know — it’s pretty easy,” the email says.
“It can also be life-changing,” Ewing added.
“You’ve got to see this video of Lena Dunham talking about her first time — it’s all over my Twitter feed,” she wrote, with a link to the video at the Obama web site.
“Then make sure you’re ready for your first (or second, or third) time, too,” she added, without specifying what she was talking about.
“In the context, perhaps it’s not wise to write about how ‘easy’ voting is, or how you should be ready for your ‘second, or third,’ erm, candidate,” Erika Ritz wrote at The Blaze.
An article at Breitbart.com says the email is enticing supporters to vote more than once.
“Now isn’t that just like the Democrats, urging the voters to vote more than once? Voting is like sex for Democrats; they have to keep doing it to make sure they’ve got everything in the right place,” William Bigelow wrote.
On Friday, talk show host Rush Limbaugh said the ad insults women as “monolithic sex machines who want to make sure they’ve got unending birth control pills and then a free trip to Planned Parenthood the next day, all paid for by Obama.”
“If I were a woman today, I would feel insulted each and every day. The way they look at women, all thinking the same way, all wanting the same things,” he added.
