Gary Kiehne, CD1 Candidate, Draws National Exposure Courtesy of Giant Horse Penis

In the this-is-what-politics-has-come-to category, an Arizona congressional candidate has received national attention thanks to a giant horse penis.

Hundreds of thousands of Internet readers from coast to coast now know the name of Arizona hotelier and rancher Gary Kiehne, a GOP candidate for Congressional District 1 -- but not due to anything he stands for, said, or did.

Instead, writers of blogs and news sites have focused on the impressive length of equine anatomy that can be seen dangling in the background of a recent mailer Kiehne put out.

Kiehne's running against challengers Andy Tobin and Adam Kwasman in August 26's primary election. The winner will face former Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick, a Democrat, in the November 4 general election.

CD1 encompasses most of eastern and northern Arizona, and the ad's photo plays up the state's most basic stereotypes. Kiehne and two men, all wearing cowboy hats, their arms propped up on the bed of a pickup truck, stand chatting near a corral with several horses. As mentioned, one stallion's penis is sure to be noticed by anyone who views the picture. Maybe people who are around horses all the time become desensitized to such zoological wonders, but it's difficult to believe that Kiehne and the makers of the ad didn't realize the horse had the potential to become a focal point.

Readers of reddit.com began remarking about the ad 10 days ago, starting a parade of one-liners that blog authors later continued on dozens of popular Internet sites.

"His last endorsement should have been: 'AND I'M NOT DICKING AROUND WITH YOU,'" says one Reddit reader.

"The understated, nearly subliminal, show of male potency and phallic power is used to increase the individuals [sic] appeal to the audience," says another.

Tucson Weekly chimed in about the ad on Monday with the article "Gary Kiehne Gets Biggest Endorsement of Them All."

Various (mostly liberal) blogs and news site caught on a couple of days ago:

Americans against the Tea Party: "GOP Congressional Candidate Doesn't Notice MASSIVE HORSE C*CK on Campaign Flyer"

New York Magazine: "The Conservative Choice for Congress Is This Giant Horse Dick"

Wonkette: "An Advocate for Penile Reform: Arizona Congressional Candidate Gets Endorsement From Visibly Aroused Horse"

Bar Stool Sports: "GOP Candidate Gary Kiehne With a Powerful New Campaign Ad, Just Kidding There's a Huge Horse Cock in the Background That Is Incredibly Distracting"

New Times attempted to get a comment from Kiehne to see what he thinks about this offbeat national exposure -- which, by the way, is kinder than the attention he received in May after remarking that most mass shooters are Democrats. He later apologized for the statement. The woman who took our message at his campaign headquarters seems to be moving at Pony Express speed; we'll update this post if we hear from him.

Why are you calling Kirkpatrick a former Congresswoman?  Did she resign?

That is not a giant horse penis. Looks like the little pukes that wrote this have never seen a horse. Funny though they spot can spot a penis in a picture first. Typical gay media.

Conservatives love when their politicians pretend to be farmers/ranchers. Which has never made much sense to me. I don't want someone who I can relate to, I want someone who spent 10 years in college studying economics and history so they don't fuck everything up once they get to make decisions.

But nobody freaks out when we show a plant's sexual organs, (aka: flowers). Humans are weird.

Looking at the way they are all starring at each other while they are talking. They look like they are soooo in love........ One is even smiling at him and holding his hands together.

This is your choose for Congress? No wonder nothing ever gets done.

I guess something gets done, but it is not in Congress.

What the hell is this shit with three cowboys sitting around the campfire with a horse penis in the back round. This does not look too good for the GOP. Reminds me of some movie.....(broke back mountain). but this one is real life..............

Just when Republicans were upset with Obama's big package... this horse's photo-bomb will probably be Obama's fault.

In Arizona, the GOP Elephant really should be replaced with a horse dick (or a horse's ass).  This guy is just ahead of his time!

It's a picture test for the Tea Party. They are instructed to vote for the biggest prick in the picture.

Two thoughts:


--Photoshop can be your friend. 

--Is this perhaps some sort of subliminal message to the ladies? Part of the GOP's "outreach" to women voters, perhaps?

I think this is a part of a GOP's outreach for men...... It is the sickest dick I have ever seen. I am talking about men like Sheriff Paul Babeu. He has posted his sick dick all over the place.
