First, there was the Iowa candidate for U.S. Senate, Joni Ernst, who released an ad in which she describes her childhood work experience castrating pigs (sounds like an horrifying childhood). Then there was another Senate candidate in Iowa, Bob Quast, who threatened to “blow your balls off.”
And now along comes J.D. Winteregg, the tea party challenger running in a primary against Speaker John Boehner. In the ad, Winteregg parodies a Cialis commercial and claims that Boehner suffers from “electile dysfunction,” and Winteregg is the cure. Oh, by the way, yes, there’s a boner/Boehner joke in there, too. Get it?
It really looks like the 2014 midterms are shaping up to be all about balls and penises.
