Gossip Girl's Serena Vanderwoodsen Wants to Pick You Up

serena_vanderwoodsen_mccain.jpg

In a new pro-Obama commercial from MoveOn.org which plays out like a drug PSA, Gossip Girl Upper East Sider Serena Vanderwoodsen feels so strongly about Obama she says, "if you're ever out somewhere and considering about voting McCain, just call me. I'll pick you up. No questions asked."

While it centers on the not so correct assumption all McCain supporters are old and all Obama supporters are young, it does do an effective job spoofing a genre that has become ingrained in the minds of the younger generation, many of whom would love nothing more than to have Serena not ask any questions while picking them up.

I wish all Obama supporters were young (i'm not a fan), because no matter how much hype is generated by MTV, Pdiddy, Brangelina, John Stewart et. al, in an effort to excite young voters, they never actually show up to the polls. I guess its hard to find that kind of time with all the facebook updates that need to be made, all the pot that needs smoking, and not to mention the 5 hour marathon of The Hills.

You must be a Republican JTD because of your generalizations of young people. I disagree with you and think the young vote will make a huge difference this year because there is so much at stake. The obliteration of our economy directly affects the young vote because the potential for them to find good paying jobs out of college is diminishing. Having Bush as President for 8 years has shown that we can't be complacent when it comes to our democracy. McCain is even scarier than Bush because McCain believes in less regulation of institutions, is erratic and temperamental and the last person I personally want to fix our foreign policy blunders. For the undecided voter out there, this is an insightful article about McCain's character:

Blake Lively's ad is laughable. She is a total airhead. Have you ever listened to her in an interview? Lastly, I don't need a Hollywood starlet telling me how to vote. Enough hype. They need to remember they are alienating at least about 1/2 of their fans by promoting a candidate.

I am voting for John McCain, a true American hero and someone who loves his Country.

Vote Country First. McCain/Palin.
