Because tweeners who idolize celebrities like Penn Badgley and Blake Lively are infinitely wiser than their parents… you know, those people with jobs and mortgages who pay taxes and have life experience and all.
This might quite possibly be the stupidest political ad I’ve ever seen. The smug arrogance of the teenage hipsters alone makes me want to vomit.
And of course, don’t ever — EVER!! — vote Republican. It doesn’t matter if Osama bin freakin’ Laden is running for President, as long as he has a “D” next to his name, it is better than voting for a Republican. The obvious comparison here is that voting Republican is the same thing as becoming a drug addict or driving drunk. On top of that, there’s the assumption that anyone who stands for anything you disagree with will be disastrous for the country. Real tolerant, eh?
And you know what the worst offense of all about voting Republican is? It’s not cool. And if it’s not cool, then you better not do it, because all the cool kids who like Obama will make fun of you. Independence be damned.
