*An official campaign video that compares voting for President Barack Obama to a girl losing her virginity has provoked an angry reaction from conservatives. [Scroll down to watch.]

Recorded by the actress and writer Lena Dunham, star of the HBO breakout hit “Girls,” the tongue-in-cheek online ad begins: “Your first time shouldn’t be with just anybody. You want to do it with a great guy.”

She says the special occasion “should be with someone who really cares about and understands women; a guy who cares whether you get health insurance and specifically whether you get birth control.”

Towards the end, the metaphor becomes even clearer: “My first time voting was amazing. There’s a line in the sand. Before I was a girl, now I was a woman. I went to the polling station, I pulled back the curtain. I voted for Barack Obama.”

Conservative commentators pounced. Fox News analyst and conservative author Monica Crowley calls the ad “sick” and “degrading.”

Blogger John Nolte of Breitbart News asks: “How could a president with two young, blossoming daughters release an ad as disgusting as this?”

RedState editor-in-chief and CNN contributor Erick Erickson wrote: “If you need any further proof we live in a fallen world destined for hell fire, consider the number of people who have no problem with the President of the United States, via a campaign ad, ridiculing virgins and comparing sex to voting.”
