Tea Party candidate releases juvenile ad (VIDEO)

Congress has an age requirement, but not a maturity requirement, unfortunately. While candidates must be 25, they can still act like they’re 10. Take J.D. Winteregg, for example.

An opponent to Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio), Winteregg released a video ad on April 13 that spoofs commercials for Viagra and Cialis, stating the Speaker of the House has “electile dysfunction,” even playing on the juvenile mispronunciation of the incumbent’s name.

Winteregg, 32, is challenging Boehner in the upcoming Republican primary.

“Your electile dysfunction could be a question of blood flow,” a narrator says. “Sometimes when a politician has been in D.C. too long, it goes to his head, and he just can’t seem to get the job done.”

The ad cuts between shots of Boehner next to President Obama and parodies of the prescription medication ads, including a man and woman sitting in outdoor tubs.

“When using Winteregg, it’s important to note that the borders will be secured, Second Amendment rights protected, Obamacare and Planned Parenthood will be defunded, and common sense will be used in solving the nation’s problems.”

Mimicking the disclaimer statements required of prescription drug ads, but only in a very juvenile format, the narrator adds “If you have a Boehner lasting more than 23 years, seek immediate medical attention.”

Even if viewers are tolerant of juvenile humor, the rapid pace and strange content of the video’s crawl message, combined with the increasing pitch of the narrator’s voice, might leave them with a migraine.

It seems the high school teacher and former door-to-door salesman hopes to create a “common people” image, too, or at least one not affiliated with expensive sports; he closes the ad with “I don’t golf.”

Boehner faces the juvenile and non-golfing Winteregg in Ohio’s May 6 primary.
