Candidates’ Girls Cheapens Already Dirty Politics

First it was a YouTube video of Obama Girl lusting over the Democratic candidate. Then there was another video of Obama Girl having a dance off with Giuliani Girl. And if one devotee singing praise isn’t enough, Republican Mitt Romney has three girls and I won’t even bother making the standard Mormon joke.

Listen, it’s bad enough that these politicians are stabbing each other in the back, and that’s just within their own party, but I for one can’t stomach these cheerleaders.

I actually shudder to think what the next presidential election is going to be like. Maybe the candidates will wear corporate stickers as they talk “smack” with Vince McMahon during WrestleMania, or whatever that fake sport is called now.

It’s already bad enough when petty issues come up about a candidate, like Romney having his dog ride on the car roof. There are enough distractions as it is but I don’t need to see some hot girl doing a strip dance as she’s lip-synching her affections to Democrat Barack Obama.

Even Hillary Clinton has her own spokes singer, although her video borderlines a Penthouse letter. (Feel free to insert your own Bill Clinton joke.)

And why are only a few candidates get to have girls singing for them? Granted, as a politician, you couldn’t ask for better advertising in order to attract younger voters. Sadly, most young voters, from my experience, are so brain dead anyway, they would vote for the candidate who was drunk off his soapbox on national T.V. So having a girl about to spill out of her clothes for a candidate is a huge step up.

But getting back to those candidates who don’t have an entourage, I guess it’s only a matter of time before we see them. But luckily, we don’t have to wait for them to start attacking each other like the candidates. The Romney Three have already attacked Obama Girl in the type of political ad on YouTube that most people immediately run away in terror from if it were a normal presidential ad.

Listen, it’s bad enough that we have candidates pretending to care about the average citizen, to show up at town hall meetings to flash a quick smile and give a good 30-second sound byte of how bad their opponent really is. But to have supporters, assuming they are doing this on their own accord, start singing their affection to a politician, cheapens politics to a new level of low.

But on the bright side, at least these girls are a sight better if we have to watch a political mud fight.
