Colorado Campaign Ad Shows Man Getting Painful Rectal Exam

Robert Blaha’s ‘product guarantee’

Robert Blaha, a self-funding Republican candidate running for the U.S. Senate seat in Colorado, released a campaign ad Thursday depicting a man undergoing a painful rectal exam.

The Colorado Springs businessman officially announced his campaign on Thursday. Blaha’s first ad also features an overflowing toilet and bobbleheads of Democratic incumbent Sen. Michael Bennet, President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and a battered Harry Reid with sunglasses and a bandage over his eye.

"If your plumber doesn’t stop the flow, you get a new plumber," Blaha says.

"If your doctor brings you pain, you get a new doctor," he says, as an image of a doctor shoving his hand up his patient’s rectum flashes onscreen.

"So why on earth do we keep sending bozos like Michael Bennet back to Washington when they fail to get anything done?" Blaha asks.

"Bennet and Obama have failed to turn this economy around and Sen. Bennet wants us to send him back to D.C.?" he continues. "I have a better idea, send me to Washington and if I can’t make a difference I’ll voluntarily come back after just one term. "

The ad showcases what Blaha calls his "product guarantee," with promises of cutting illegal immigration in half, and cutting the deficit.

The Denver Post reported that ad maker Fred Davis is working for Blaha’s campaign. Davis was behind the infamous "demon sheep" ad for Carly Fiorina’s failed 2010 Senate run in California.

The Post also reported that Blaha is planning to spend big in the race, as he has already bought $47,000 in television ads.

The TV spots "are intended to get people’s attention," Blaha said.
