Iowa Senate candidate Joni Ernst garnered some attention with her “Squeal” campaign commercial touting her political pork-cutting bona fides by pointing out that she grew up castrating hogs on an Iowa farm. Her latest less cringe-inducing promo features her riding a Harley, hints that she packs heat and shows her perforating some paper at an indoor range while promising she’ll “unload” on ObamaCare. Let’s just hope her demonstration of firearms proficiency portends better things than formerly A-rated Joe Manchin’s did.

38 Responses to Joni Ernst’s Latest Ad Hits Closer to the Bullseye

  1. Simple withdrawal from constant lies and unconstitutional attacks is an improvement for most Dems.

    • Yup, I don’t like them dems, but watching them stray farther away from our Guns is great to watch.

  2. She’d get my vote. Oh, wait, no voter ID? Maybe she will get my vote. Best wishes from sunny SoCal.

  3. Dem or Repub? (and for national office, yes it does make a difference–still haven’t been shown otherwise).

    • Why? It’s working for her. Don’t we have enough 2nd amendment nannies demanding action that you have to be the teacup police?

    • Just means she is probably a classically trained wheelgun shooter that went with an automatic because it looked cooler on the commercial.

  4. The question is whether or not she actually backs up what she says. Witty campaign ad nonetheless.

    • Yup. I showed this ad to my girlfriend and she said it spoke to her as a woman too.

      I for one would enjoy if more more women would stop talking about breaking molds and actually do it as this gal seems to be doing.

  5. Based on the way she loads, and that grip that’s too low on the beavertail, I doubt she’s a regular pistol shooter.
    But she’s still orders of magnitude better than our senators: Patty Murray (GOA: F) and Maria Cantwell (GOA: F).

    • I remember a certain guy from Top Shot who won a match-and the show, eventually-while shooting with the teacup grip.

      Lets can the elitst BS, eh?

  6. Nice try lady, I give her points for trying. Murray and Cantwell manage to keep getting elected and all I get is form letter replies from the both. They are as anti-gun as you can get.

  7. So what if she doesn’t shoot like Kirsten Joy Weiss?!? Give the lady a break. I thought the commercial was unique and very appealing. She’s a Mid-West born & raised conservative who is obviously not a member of the OFWG club. As a state senator and an officer in the National Guard (O-5) I think she’s got a lot to offer. As an Iowan I think she could be a breath of fresh air in the Senate. Oh, and she’s all about the 2nd Amendment, has her CCW permit, and has an “A” rating from the NRA.

    • She has my vote, her home town of Red Oak is a short drive away. And she will be a much better Senator than her predecessor, Tom Harkin. The smartest thing he ever did was retire. Go, Joni!

  8. I hope she wins BIG and I also hope we can get a candidate like that here in California someday soon.

  9. The last democrats in office was Kennedy, after him they are all liberals. Hate to tag it that way, what it is, is what it is. My mama was a demo, but she is now Republican/conservative, heck yes.

  10. oh my god sweetheart. Watching her remove that gun from the case, rack the slide with the wrong hand, and then fire it with the beavertail an inch above the web of her hand was enough to make me scream.

    • Try focusing on the fact she’s shooting a “scary” pistol in a public ad more than your elitist bullshit.

      Fact is I can probably outshoot the vast majority of people who post here- I should hope so having been able to put so much ammo downrange on the government dime.

      Ask yourself why I and people like me who have posted in this thread have not seen fit to call the things out that you seem to have such a problem with. 🙂

    • It is a military regulation haircut.

      “Ernst has served a combined 21 years in the United States Army Reserves and the Iowa Army National Guard. She spent 14 months mobilized and overseas in Kuwait from 2003-2004 as a company commander at the start of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Her unit was responsible for running logistical convoys in Kuwait and into southern Iraq. A Lieutenant Colonel, Ernst currently commands the largest battalion in the Iowa Army National Guard.”
