Girls star Lena Dunham has already shown an interest in local politics, but now, the actress-slash-auteur-slash-author is getting involved in the presidential election. Ms. Dunham taped a video for the Obama campaign filled with plenty of sexual innuendo and her reasons for supporting President Barack Obama.

Ms. Dunham’s video, which is entitled “Your First Time,” was released this evening and features her staring into the camera having seemingly giving advice about losing one’s virginity.

“Your first time shouldn’t be with just anybody,” Ms. Dunham says. “You want to do it with a great guy.”

As the video continues, it becomes clear Ms. Dunham is talking about voting–specifically, casting a ballot for President Obama.

“My first time voting was amazing. It was this line in the sand: before, I was a girl, now I was a woman,” Ms. Dunham says.  “I went to the polling station, I pulled back the curtain, I voted for Barack Obama.”

Ms. Dunham was born in May 1986, so she would have been eligible to vote for the first time in 2004 rather than 2008. Apparently, she didn’t feel John Kerry or George W. Bush was worthy of being her first.

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
