Did President Reagan make a sex joke about voting that puts actress Lena Dunham's virginity allegory to shame? MSNBC anchor Lawrence O'Donnell seems to think so.

Mediaite points out that, on his show, The Last Word, O'Donnell first listed the many notes of outrage from conservatives reacting to Dunham's video message comparing her first time voting to Obama to, well, her first time.

Then he replayed the off-color Reagan joke that O'Donnell said ventured into gay sex.
