Despite widespread public opposition to the current healthcare reform package, which is slated to be passed by the Senate on Christmas Eve, advocates have a new tool in their arsenal to court younger voters.

Sex, what else?

Rock the Vote, the celebrity weighted group that tries to reel in votes for Dems, recently released a video that encourages young folks to use sexual favors, or the withholding thereof, as a means of persuasion.

Libs of the past made a career out of ridiculing abstinence programs.

But some Rock the Vote libs are apparently on board with discouraging potential young voters from having sex with anyone who has reservations about the Dem healthcare bill.

It doesn’t stop there, though. The video also urges viewers to use sex to convince others to back the Democrat’s version of healthcare for the country.

“What would you withhold from someone who opposes healthcare reform? Cookies, a Christmas gift, sex?” viewers are asked.

The video also includes a demonstration of how people can use seductive techniques to convince others to support so-called reform.

To accompany the bad acting, the piece is dotted with profanity.

Mock the Vote better describes the group now.

In other underexposed Obama related news, in a recent interview with the Daily Beast, Sarah Jessica Parker shared some of her conflicted feelings about President Obama.

The Dem actress revealed that her son James Wilkie had “expressed pride in Obama” but had also expressed to her “that he is unhappy at how much Obama is on television.”

Guess even a 6-year-old has a feel for the term “overexposed.”

“I refuse to lose hope in Obama,” Parker said. “Although healthcare is the biggest concern for me. I will be so blue if I lose hope in this man. I’m not a Pollyanna but I can’t abandon Obama at this early stage.”

Still, the actress took note of a presidential promise that was broken.

“The thing that I was hoping for was transparency in the healthcare debate because that’s the promise he made to me personally. That has disappointed me,” she said, expressing the disillusionment that so many Americans feel.

Of course, she couldn’t pass up the opportunity to launch on the Left's current whipping boy.

“As for Joe Lieberman’s role in the healthcare process . . . Well, I just don’t understand it. James Wilkie is more mature than Joe Lieberman is. Lieberman has behaved like a petulant child,” Parker cracked.
