Sarah Jessica Parker is a big supporter of President Obama. We know this because she said so during a 30-second Obama campaign spot that ran numerous times during the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night.

Did you see it? The “Sex and the City” star was breezy and informal, referring to Obama as “the guy who ended the war in Iraq” and “the guy who says you should be able to marry anyone you want,” and so on. The fast-tempo, cheery music under her voice made the whole thing sound like a trailer for an upcoming production of some kind, which in a way it was. Ms. Parker touted an Obama fundraising raffle in which the winner gets to have a meal with her, the president and first lady, and Vogue editor Anna Wintour on June 14. (Entries closed Monday night. Please don’t sob into your herbal tea.)

Michelle Obama hearts Parker back, by the way. On Monday she released a statement thanking the Carrie-Bradshaw-portraying actress for hosting the dinner.
