The people marketing President Obama seem to be selling what everybody on Madison Avenue knows sells better than anything else: Sex.
The Obama campaign is being prominently represented by some of the nation’s hottest celebrities. That is, not just the hottest stars in the country, but the hottest looking stars in the country.
The old “Obama girl,” whose sexy video helped make Obama hip last election cycle, doesn’t even seem to know if she’s going to vote for him this time. But who needs her?
And who needs the dowdy Oprah Winfrey, with her incessant stuggles to lose weight? The Obama team, which relied on her so heavily in 2008, when she had the biggest show on the planet, has pretty much shunted her aside this year.
Meet the new Obama girls. They’re among the sexiest female celebrities on the planet, and they vote Democratic.
Guys, missed your coffee this morning? This will wake you up.
Topping the list is Scarlett Johansson, the sex bomb who nearly blew up the Democrat convention.
Then of course there’s Beyonce, who has practically joined the Obama family and is the woman Michelle Obama says she most wants to be if it wasn’t so incredibly awesome being Michelle Obama.
Eva Longoria has been helping the Obama campaign with its outreach to Hispanics. Oh, they must be thinking, if they could only reach back!
The most recent addition to the sex brigade is Jessica Alba, who last night sent out an email via the Obama campaign purring something about “getting involved.”
Other prominent Obama supporters include Anne Hathaway, Julia Roberts, and Gwyneth Paltrow. But no more pics, I don’t want to overwhelm you.
And of course, let’s not forget the ladies. George Clooney, who serves as Obama’s Special Adviser for Whatever He Wants to Advise Obama About, is a constant presence, dropping by the White House for urgent policy discussions and hosting an Obama fundraiser.
This crew of Obama “surrogates” is just too good looking for all of this to be a coincidence. Someone in the Obama camp decided to sex things up.
What can Republicans do? Trot out Bo Derek again? If there are some really hot Romney backers in Hollywood, they’re probably more worried about being blacklisted than showing their support.
