The actress in the advertisement flop that the Obama campaign spewed forth a few days ago is not quite what she appears to be. Lena Dunham is a professional actress - or at least considers herself to be. This wikipedia write-up is quite interesting. An unassuming person looking at this ad might think that her parents would be quite disappointed in her - probably not hers! Her father paints "overtly sexualized pop art" (it figures) and her mother creates "disquieting domestic tableaux with dolls" (whatever the hell that means).
I can only imagine that in this lovely economy (delivered to us courtesy of the Messiah Most Miserable), Dunham is hard up for work so she glommed onto this Obama slop-job. I can't imagine this will look impressive on her resume.
