Putin Campaign Ad Seeks The Virgin Vote
Andrew Sullivan highlights a new ad from Vladimir Putin’s campaign:
Since it’s in Russian, here’s a translation:
Allow me to (kinda) translate. A doe-eyed gal goes to a fortune teller, who kittenishly divulges:
“We’ll find out, little beauty, who fate has in store for you.”
“You know, I hope it’s for love.” Blink-blink-blink. “It’s my… first time.”
“The carrrds will tell the truth… I see it will be for love… without deception…” (AHEM AHEM)
A Putin card is revealed.
“Wow. It’s him!”
“You’ll be happy with him. He’ll protect you like a stone wall.” (Or something…)
And the kicker:
Putin. First time — only for <3.
This isn’t the first time that Putin’s United Russia party has used sex to sell itself to voters, of course. Remember this ad from November?
Not exactly what you’d expect from the GOP is it?
