What To Do When Your Boehner Lasts More Than 23 Years

April 14, 2014 by  

One of Republican House Speaker John Boehner’s many GOP primary challengers has launched an attack ad that must be making everyone else jealous for not having thought of it first.

Riffing on the pronunciation of the Speaker’s last name (as well as Boehner’s own efforts to make light of its occasional mispronunciation), Ohio GOP candidate J.D. Winteregg has a new anti-Boehner ad that parodies all the tired pharmaceutical come-ons for man pills on TV by prescribing voters a solution for “electile dysfunction.”

“If you have a Boehner lasting longer than 23 years, seek immediate medical attention,” the ad advises, portraying Winteregg as a conservative alternative to middle-of-the-road cronyism in the GOP.

The modest production values of the ad may serve to reinforce the high-school tone of its message, but we have to admit: it’s a funny bit. And, notwithstanding whether Winteregg is the right choice to replace Boehner, its criticism of the Speaker is well placed.

Ben Bullard

Reconciling the concept of individual sovereignty with conscientious participation in the modern American political process is a continuing preoccupation for staff writer Ben Bullard. A former community newspaper writer, Bullard has closely observed the manner in which well-meaning small-town politicians and policy makers often accept, unthinkingly, their increasingly marginal role in shaping the quality of their own lives, as well as those of the people whom they serve. He argues that American public policy is plagued by inscrutable and corrupt motives on a national scale, a fundamental problem which individuals, families and communities must strive to solve. This, he argues, can be achieved only as Americans rediscover the principal role each citizen plays in enriching the welfare of our Republic.
