Ben Quayle, the son of former VP Dan Quale, is running for Congress, and I guess he has to do something to get out from under the cloud of his infamously idiotic father, but I’m not sure if this is the right way to do it. In his new campaign ad, the first words out of his mouth are that Obama is the worst president in history. Can’t he tell the difference between the last two presidents?
Meanwhile, Ben Quayle is busy denying allegations that he was a frequent contributor to a sex-themed website called “Dirty Scottsdale”. Apparently he ran a regular feature where he documented his quest to find “the hottest chick in Scottsdale” (which I guess is a different kind of bush).
UPDATE: Centrist Zealot has a hilarious article about this. Ben Quayle has now admitted to posting to Dirty Scottsdale (after previously denying it). He posted under the pseudonym “Brock Landers”, which is the name of a porn star character from Boogie Nights. So much for “knocking the hell” out of Washington.
UPDATE 2: Quayle isn’t content with only one scandal on his hands. A few days before this story broke, he sent out a mailer showing a photo of himself, his wife, and two young girls, with the caption “We are going to raise our family here.” The only problem? Ben Quayle doesn’t have any girls. In fact, he doesn’t have any children at all. He borrowed his nieces for the photo.
