Spoof Apple Ad By 'Blue America' Hits GOP For 'Crazy' Ideas: 'There's A Republican For That' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

A new web video released by Blue America and Americans For America PACs describes leading Republicans as crazy. The ad takes a critical look at former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, Kentucky Senate candidate Rand Paul and House Minority Leader John Boehner.

In a spoof of Apple's "there's an app for that" ads, the video suggests potential GOP leaders depending on what a possible voter would want. Criticizing Palin for her pro-oil policy in the wake of the Gulf oil spill, the ad said she is ideal for someone who wants "a President of the United States who still thinks America's energy policy should be to drill more wells like the BP Gulf well. There's a Republican for that."

Rep. John Boehner (R- Ohio) was criticized for his statements that "other Americans should work harder and longer... but managed to get in 119 rounds of golf last year."

The ad hit Kentucky Senate candidate Rand Paul for his thoughts that "the Civil Rights Act was unconstitutional." Paul had a debate with Rachel Maddow over whether or not he supports the Civil Rights Act.
