Candidate spoofs Boehner's 'electile dysfunction.' Mia Love trounces opponents in cash race. No legislative override session.
Happy Tuesday. An Ohio man who is challenging House Speaker John Boehner in a primary, made a campaign video spoof of Cialis ads about Boehner's "electile dysfunction." Key quotes: "Your electile dysfunction? It could be a question of blood flow. 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," and "If you have a Boehner lasting longer than 23 years seek immediate medical attention."
