In a snarky new video posted on, a group of women try — and fail — to come up with reasons that they, as women, would vote for Mitt Romney. Autostraddle tracked down this "screen test" for a pro-GOP commercial, women from comedy troupe Upright Citizens Brigade start stumping for the Republican presidential hopeful, then change course when they are inadvertently reminded that they are, indeed, women. 

Sasheer Zamata can't keep a straight face for even a moment as she busts out laughing. After pointing out that she has long hair and regularly uses lipstick, she points to her backside and asks, "You see this? Does this look like a Romney ass? Huh? No." She adds, "Plus, I'm black, so I wouldn't…"

"Am I voting for Romney?" asks a particularly butch Shannon O'Neil. "Let me check and see if I still have a pussy. Yep. Still have a pussy."

Watch the video right here, and tell us in the comments why you're not voting for Romney. Or tell us why the Republican gets your vote! If you dare…
