New campaign ad: ‘Republican’ women for Obama

This line from the Obama campaign ad below is really all you need to fill your weekend guffaw quota: “If you’re a conservative woman and you believe in small government, then Barack Obama is your candidate.” Yes, and if you believe in smaller waistlines, Michael Moore’s your guy:

So if you value your freedom, pull the lever for the guy who proposed and signed into law a sweeping government mandate. Makes sense… in some alternate universes perhaps. Does the White House (and other Dems for that matter) really want to get into the equal pay for women argument?

By the way, it looks like at least one of the “Republican” women featured in that ad has been a registered Democrat since 2006.

Powerline’s John Hinderaker took a look at the woman’s Facebook “likes,” and they have “moderate Republican who is a late-comer to Hope & Change” written all over them (h/t Ed Morrissey):

Her Facebook page is here; some of her friends congratulate her on appearing in the Obama ad. In addition to the fact that she is a registered Democrat, check out her Facebook “likes.” They make it obvious that Ms. Ciano is a devoted Democrat and a left-wing activist. Here are some of her “likes,” beginning with the earliest in time:

* Democracy For America
* Tar Sands Action
* Amy Goodman
* Barack Obama
* Costoftaxcuts.com
* Being Liberal
* MoveOn.org
* Bernie Sanders Tells You A Secret the GOP Would Rather You Didn’t Know
* Miss Piggy Delivers the Best Takedown of Fox News We’ve Seen All Month
* Think Progress
* The Best Quote From Barack Obama We’ve Seen This Week
* Dow and Monsanto Join Forces to Poison America’s Heartland
* Climate Reality
* Grist.org
* The Amazing Victory Scored With Obama That More People Should Be Talking About
* The Sierra Club
* The Buffett Rule
* Obama For America–Colorado
* UniteWomen.org
* Denver Young Democrats
* Obamacare
* Latinos For Obama
* Michelle Obama
* Veterans For Obama
* I Love It When I Wake Up In the Morning and Obama Is President
* Obama Truth Team
* Democratic Party

Thankfully President Obama has helped free her from the grip of those right-wing movements and organizations in order to focus Forward™.

Prediction: The next “Republican women for Obama” ad will feature Stephanie Cutter in a wig and sunglasses.

Update: Make that at least two women in the video are Democrats who had already supported Obama in 2008.
