GOP take note: Chris Burgard, the out-of-the-box producer behind the infamous “Smoking Man” video that vaulted Herman Cain into frontrunner status is also responsible for getting John Boehner’s challenger, JD Winteregg, on Glenn Beck, Rush, on Fox, all over the Internet and on the radar with something still foreign to establishment Republicans..
A little thing we call; “humor.” Google it.
Chris made a video for JD that parodies a Cialis erectile dysfunction commercial, called; “When the Moment is Right.” The moment refers to Boehner getting the heck out of politics already and alludes to “electile dysfunction”…
For those rolling their eyes – shut the hell up.
I’m tired of critics and I’ve had enough of you tired-ass Republicans who have sold us out with your enabling of Democrats on spending, ObamaCare, Amnesty – raising campaign funds from leftists and putting up candidate after candidate who couldn’t squeeze a laugh out of a naked monkey if they had two hours to draw a crowd.
Yes, it’s weird how liberals tend to have the market cornered on funny and why? I’ll tell you: Because Republicans are a bunch of old farts. They have their panties so wadded up in their arses they couldn’t see funny if it crawled up their leg and cinched onto their cobblers.
Am I the only one that remembers how funny Ronald Reagan was? Oh yeah, almost forgot – the establishment hated Reagan and didn’t want him anywhere near the nomination or the presidency. The Fords, the Bush’s, the Howard Baker’s, the Karl Rove’s of their day despised Reagan but he used humor and real conservatism to kick their asses.
But something happened and now the GOP needs a wet-rag-ect-omy. Lighten up, as Mr. Cain used to say.
Why doesn’t the GOP hire Chris Burgard? Why? Because he’ll make them funny. I know for a fact that Mitt Romney not only has a great sense of humor, but with the right material, has great delivery and timing too. Chris could have gotten that guy elected.
Here he is in his own words: Hat tip Breitbart:
by Chris Burgard
A few weeks ago, the campaign consulting firm FourTier Strategies called and asked if I would make a commercial for a guy running against House Speaker John Boehner. I thought, “Wow. I’ve already been blacklisted in Hollywood; let’s get blacklisted by the Republicans … there’s a career move.”
But after a call with JD Winteregg, I was impressed.
Winteregg is a millennial, educated, Christian, high school teacher who had lived in a Socialist Country for a year. He had personally experienced socialized medicine. It took him a month to get a chest X-ray. Back home in the States, his mom developed cancer, was in treatment within days, and lived. JD was convinced that if she had been residing in France, she would be dead. He couldn’t wait to get back home.
When Winteregg didn’t see Boehner standing up to the fundamental change that was currently happening in America, he decided to run for Congress.
Although Winteregg and his volunteers had knocked on over 20,000 doors, he wasn’t getting traction in the press.
I have a soft spot in my heart for underdogs. I believe in the free market. I believe in engaged discussion. I believe that the primary system makes our leaders stronger. It felt important that the people in Ohio’s 8th from both Boehner and Winteregg.
Thus was born “When the Moment is Right.”
Breitbart broke the video. It went viral. People laughed. There was now an awareness that Boehner had an opponent named JD Winteregg.
Within hours of the video being featured by radio hosts Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh, Winteregg was fired from his university position. He answered back by releasing the B.E.S.T. Border Security and Immigration Plan.
Humor had given him an opportunity and a platform to present a common sense solution and be heard. That is a model that works.
Herman Cain has a great sense of humor and a brilliant mind for marketing. He soared from relative obscurity to become the Presidential frontrunner without buying one second of national TV time during the 2012 campaign. Cain knew that becoming part of pop culture was tantamount to succeeding in politics. The elite may not have dug Cain’s messaging but the youth did.
The fact is we live in a reality TV, YouTube world where a majority of our youth get their news from Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert on Comedy Central. The same political elite that didn’t laugh at Obama during his interview on “Between Two Ferns” has no idea why they lost the last election.
As Michael Reagan said in a recent Newsmax interview: “The Republican Party is doing classes right now in the use of smartphones because they don’t even know how to push the button…..”
If they want to win, they better learn because Colbert is about to become the next David Letterman. You can’t win the argument if you can’t speak the language. Winteregg and Cain understand that. Come to think of it Ronald Reagan did, too.
You want a rerun of 2000-2006? That’s Boehner and Company. They ran up the biggest deficits and debt in the country’s history. The only reason you don’t remember is because Pelosi, Reid and Obama came along and aced them out.
You think Boehner and Company are going to fix it? Now that’s a laugh..
