Video: Farmer Jon Runyan

RunyanCongressDonkey Jon Runyan is certainly not the first athlete to turn to a career in politics following his professional ball playing days, but he may be the first to appear in a commercial dressed up as a farmer surrounded by a bunch of jackasses. Big Jon was one hell of a lineman for the Eagles and is now running for Congress in New Jersey. We're not going to pretend to know anything about the fiscal conservative's political background — we also don't live in NJ — but this negative commercial in which Runyan appears dressed up as farmer Joe made us giggle when we first saw it last week. [video below]

The title of the YouTube video is "Jon Runyan: How Can We Trust Him?" I don't know about his political views, but you can always trust Big Jon to protect your blind side and maybe even get you a cup of coffee.

the artistry in campaign videos is stunning…
