Does House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) suffer from “electile dysfunction?”

That’s the assertion of a new YouTube ad from Boehner’s Republican primary challenger, J.D. Winteregg.

The ad, titled “When The Moment Is Right,” is a Boehner-themed parody of prescription drug ads.

“Other signs of electile dysfunction may include extreme skin discoloration, the inability to punch oneself out of a wet paper bag, or maintain a spine in the face of liberal opposition,” the ad’s narrator says.

He adds, “If you have a Boehner lasting longer than 23 years, seek immediate medical attention.”

Amusing ads aside, Winteregg has almost no chance of preventing Speaker Boehner from winning a 13th term in the House. At the time of the last report, the Tea Party-aligned high school teacher had raised just under $3,000 for the race — a tiny fraction of Boehner’s $11,020,540. Boehner has never won less than 60 percent of the vote in Ohio’s conservative 8th congressional district.

Still, the Speaker is not taking any chances; in early April, Boehner aired his first campaign ad since Republicans won the House in 2010.

    That is JUST the kind of campaign commercial I’d expect from a Tea Party candidate.

    Fool had $3000.00 dollars and he spent likely all of it on that stinker and worse he doesn’t know that Tea Party popularity is lower than zero

    John may have slaughtered his manhood from drinking and smoking too much but I have to say he’s better off than this Winter nitwit

  • Sand_Cat

    His primary opponent is a school teacher?
    If there is a god, may it help those kids!

    This is just the low type of humor that the Tea Party thinks is humorous. Carry on, T.P.ers. Even Republicans are starting to despise you now.

  • Lynda Groom

    Well Boehner may not be my favorite politician, but this clown has set a new low in political advertising. This is just childish and speaks volumnes about the not ready for prime time candidate. Shame on you and grow up.

    • jointerjohn

      I agree with you completely, but this is exactly the kind of message that appeals to the knuckle-dragging post adolescents that make up the republican core. Remember, these people think Ted Nugent is a great American hero.

      • ralphkr

        Not only that, jointerjohn, but they even think that Nugent is a musician…which proves that they all have tin ears to go with the rocks between their ears.

    There is only one way that person could really know if John Boehner has erectile disfunction.

    • plc97477

      It’s actually electile disfunction and there is lots of ways to tell.

  • Shadow Diver

    Defund Obama care? Your plan is to rob over 10,000,000 people of their newly attained health insurance? Good luck with that one Sparky.

  • FT66

    Is this Tea-bagger aware that these two words: electile and erectile are two different words and they bear different meanings? I Wonder why there are lovers and roses etc. etc in his ad!

    • 1standlastword

      With only $3000.00 he couldn’t afford a Madison Ave advertising and marketing firm so he probably had the elementary homeroom class compete is a raffle for the best attack ad a pre-adolescent come create

  • elw

    I just love watching republicans eating their own. It does not surprise me to see ads by them that show their pre-teen obsession with bodily functions and sex.

  • Allan Richardson

    He probably had the ad copy written by his staff. It doesn’t sound like it was too hard to write. Democrats will be OK if we just keep a stiff upper lip.

  • Mark Forsyth

    Whether it’s a rock hard erection or just a big dick like Boehner,what goes up must come down.

    Conservatives are not fans of this blockhead!….or McCain, McConnel, Ryan, Christie……
