This isn’t a new tactic, of course. The Obama campaign used Hollywood actresses last year to treat voting for the first time like your first time having sex — ‘do it with someone special.’
Girls, I agree with @lenadunham. Your first time should be with a guy who really cares about and understands women: http://t.co/s8t87mh1

While I find such “motivational” tactics cheap, degrading, vapid, and ultimately self-serving, in one way Rock the Vote, Dunham, Judd and others who take this route are unintentionally right – because after you vote, ultimately the voter usually gets, well …
…. in one way or another.
But I don’t wanna be an, um .. downer, today. Happy Friday!
