Make It Stop

So this is the ‘Lena Dunham’ that’s all famous and everyone loves and whatnot?
Holy cow (no pun intended). I can barely watch more than ~3 uninterrupted seconds of her talking without the irresistible urge to SHUT IT OFF. Is this what our politics are reduced to? If this is what is appealing to Younger Voters, I just. I give up.
UPDATE: I’m just glad the Obama administration has made sure to tell us they’re the people of Facts And Science And Argument. Otherwise the Facts And Science of Lena Dunham’s Argument might have just gone over my head. Or under, whatever.
UPDATE: So help me out, Lena Dunham fans: her schtick is that she’s a lesbian but pretends not to be and everyone pretends not to notice? Is that it or is there more to it?
UPDATE: This is a perfect illustration of what I mean when I lament the old negative campaign days of candidates calling each other cuckolds and mulattos. You really want to tell me this tripe is better?
UPDATE: But I shouldn’t talk, as I haven’t really watched this ad. I wasn’t kidding when I said I couldn’t take more than 3 seconds at a time without turning it off.
