If you don't know the whore, consider yourself lucky. Richard Kim, more than anyone else, is why I quit subscribing to The Nation magazine.
It should be no surprise then that her impish video imploring young women to vote for Barack Obama—because on the first time “you wanna to do it with a great guy”—works in the same mode and has elicited similarly polarizing reactions. In just 24 hours, her ad has garnered hundreds of thousands of views on Youtube and an almost equal numbers of likes and dislikes.
He goes on to site I-was-John-Edwards-Campaign-Blogger-until-my-potty-mouth-got-me-fired Amanda saying that the ad's fine.
F**k Kim and f**k Amanda. And how trashy do you have to be for serial adulterer John Edwards to fire you? Grasp that. Edwards is paraiah. So that makes Amanda beneath pariah.
An exhibitionist was hired by the Obama campaign to make a get-out-the-vote video. She sees women as whores so no surprise she makes a video comparing voting to having sex for the first time.
I'm not sure Lena The Exhibitionist has had sex but that's because I've watched that awful HBO show Girls.
Here's reality, Lena's a limp mind, totally non-creative.
Do you remember SCTV?
Martin Short used to do Kathatrine Hepburn impersonations on that show. In one, 'Kate' went on and on about her 'first time' and how she didn't like it much the first time and on and on. At the very end, you found out she was talking about coffee.
That's the same thing that Lena's done. She's ripped off SCTV.
Richard Kim wouldn't know that because there were no Dawson Creek types on SCTV and he so sorely needs those types to stay interested.
Now there's also the whole "Girls Say Yes To Guys Who Say No" nonsense.
During Vietnam, that was a poster featuring three women -- Joan Baez and her two sisters.
If guys said "no" to service in Vietnam, the poster proclaimed, women would say "yes!"
That's what this is doing as well. It's faux feminism.
'Voting is like having sex!'
No, it's nothing like have sex. But how telling that women are being targeted with that ad, how telling that voting is being sexualized.
How telling that Lena and the Obama campaign don't see woman as thinkers but as breeders desperate for the act of sex.
That ad goes to the belief -- the false belief -- that are men are thinkers and women are ruled by biology.
It's a sexist ad.
It's a false ad.
And it's a rip-off of SCTV.
There's nothing to defend there.
Amanda should stick to picking out racist cartoons for her next book.
And Richard Kimmy is such a betrayer of people of color that he would go to Amanda to begin with, that he would cite her. That tells you all you need to know about how White Richard Kim really is.
No self-respecting person of color would reward Amanda. Her racist attacks -- with her book cover and the illustrations as well her ripping off African-American bloggers -- are very well known.
The commercial is offensive and perfectly in keeping with Barack's sexist attitudes (calling female reporters "sweetie," his male-only golf games, etc.). He's a pig, so's Amanda, so's Richard Kimmy.
