Skip to comments.Senate Candidate Joni Ernst's Sarah Palin Schtick is Now Beyond Parody

Joni Ernst, a Republican Senate candidate in Iowa, was made in the Sarah Palin mold her first TV ad focused on her experience castrating hogs. Perhaps high off the buzz and Palin endorsement that that ad generated, Ernst just released another TV spot that is beyond parody.
The 30-second spot, titled "Shot," features Ernst at the shooting range, "unloading" on Obamacare. The narrator's lines sound like a Palin speech run through the shredder. As Ernst rides into the frame on a Harley, we hear, "Conservative Joni Ernst: Mom, Farm Girl, and a Lieutenant Colonel who carries more than just lipstick in her purse." (She carries a gun.) Ernst then loads her gun, taking "aim" at both wasteful spending and the ACA. "Joni doesn't miss much," the narrator proclaims, as Ernst shows off a bullseye full of holes.
Now fans can "give Joni a shot" by contributing to her campaign, which is going well, all things considered. The Republican primary is on June 3rd, and Ernst is narrowly leading the field. In April, a Suffolk University poll gave her 25 percent of the vote, while her main competitor, businessman Mark Jacobs, took 23 percent. If Ernst wins the nomination and goes on to beat Democrat Bruce Baley, she would be Iowa's first female senator. She would also be the first female combat veteran to serve in the Senate.
Her gun-toting, hog-castrating has solidified her future as a Mama Grizzly, at least....

Joni Ernst is getting a tremendous amount of publicity without spending a tremendous amount of money (unlike a certain former executive who's moved back to Iowa and is trying to buy his way to a nomination).
Who's the clever one and who's the rube?
The fear of one of the peasants rising to a position of power drives them nuts.
“...drives them nuts....”
Haha!! Yeah, it’s fun to watch ain’t it???
The Atlantic, didn’t it used to be relevant?
Of course you’re right, my brain completely skipped over the word WIRE, my bad!
In 1955, maybe.
Great commercial. Good luck to her.
Partisan Media Shills ping, thanks 2ndDivisionVet.

I like the fact that her commercials are attention grabbing. I know, I’m terrible, but her haircut is too matronly for a woman in the public eye, IMO. It’s too late to change that, but I surely hope that she wins. Oh well. Bob
I LOVE HER !
I don’t know enough about her, but Gov. Palin’s endorsement carries a lot of weight with me. Bob
“...I know, Im terrible, but her haircut is too matronly for a woman in the public eye, IMO. Its too late to change that, but I surely hope that she wins....”
I think she’s one of those folks for whom the still camera does NOT do justice. I watched her in the debate and she looked much better (certainly not “matronly”) in “moving film”. And I’m guessing that in person she looks great.
Anyhow, she will be a GREAT Senator who will stay true to her conservative roots. Her primary opponent (Jacobs) is a GOP establishment candidate who would become an entrenched RINO should he get the nomination. God, I hope he doesn’t.
Met Joni 4 years ago when she first became a state senator. She’s always been like that. Nat’l guard commander and bona fide farmgirl.
The article is crap.
Yes, it would be wonderful. I’d rather have a Constitutionalist with a dull hairdo every trip of the train. Bob
Nobody in American political history has a better endorsement record than Gov Palin
