The fabulously talented Lena Dunham best known for her portrayal of Hannah Horvath in HBO's hit series Girls has released an ad supporting Obama that has completely unhinged the wingers.

Twitter has been burning up with conservative outrage. But nothing that has been said so far can even begin to top this response from Nancy Pense of Concerned Women for America.

The misogynistic Obama Campaign has released an obnoxious, double-entendre of a Web ad, featuring a woman who looks and acts like an overly immature, tattooed twelve-year-old. Once again, Obama is reducing women to — do we have to say it again? — 'lady parts.' Well, the pimply faced adolescents over at Obama HQ need to grow up and realize that we think with our brains and act with our hearts — again, 'Lady Smarts, Not Lady Parts.' Obama’s good ‘ol boys may have their minds in the gutter, but our minds are on our pocketbooks. In every sense of the phrase, 'It’s the economy, stupid.' Did they miss the headline about the 'gender gap' between Obama and Romney disappearing? Maybe it’s because we’re not a bunch of cheap floozies, easily bought with condoms and free pills.
Bolding mine, and have you ever seen anything quite so upside-down, inside-out and hypocritical? Over the past week, we have seen absolutely jaw dropping remarks coming from the likes of Richard Mourdock and Josh Mandel without so much as a peep from these "concerned women". But just let an empowered woman like Lena Dunham make a playful and entertaining ad and there isn't enough smelling salts in all the land to bring these women to their senses.

I think a new group needs to be formed to provide an intervention. We can call it Concerned Women for Concerned Women for America. The first step is admitting they have a problem.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
