A Tea Party candidate challenging House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) is out with an online ad that says the speaker suffers from “electile dysfunction.”

The ad, titled “When the Moment Is Right,” parodies a Cialis commercial to tout challenger J.D. Winteregg’s conservative ideals while linking Boehner to President Barack Obama.

“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 spot’s narrator says over a clip of Boehner and Obama shaking hands.

“Used on a daily basis, Winteregg in Congress will help you every time the moment is right — to have your voice heard at the federal level,” the narrator adds. “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.”

The spot goes on to show Boehner golfing with Obama and giving a thumbs-up to the President during this year’s State of the Union address.

“If you have a Boehner lasting more than 23 years, seek immediate medical attention,” the ad’s narrator warns.

Winteregg is a high school French teacher taking on Boehner in May’s Republican primary with support from the Tea Party Leadership Fund, according to ABC News. He’s in a field that includes two other tea party challengers, but as ABC News noted, no sitting House speaker has ever been defeated in a primary election.
