Ben Quayle, Superstar

When last we heard from Young Ben Quayle, R-Silver Spoon, he was heading off to Washington DC to "kick some ass".

In Young Ben's mind he is one tough hombre. I believe the word is "delusional". I guess being a pampered, little, lick-spittle will do that to a fellow. The truth is, Ben Quayle would get his ass kicked at a Cub Scout jamboree. (I'm reminded once again of the Bush boys. They all think they're Sonny or Michael, but in actuality they are all Fredo.)

Young Ben had campaigned, if by "campaigned" you mean spending Mom and Dad's money preaching to a bunch of Paradise Valley Republican scum, by calling President Obama "the worst president ever." This coming from a man whose party gave us Warren Harding, Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and both Bushes--in less than 100 years! (Quite a roll call, isn't it? We're lucky there's anything left standing. All I can say is thank God for FDR, JFK and LBJ or we'd all be living in caves, eating the dead and dying.)

Well, time flies by, and Young Ben Quayle is running for re-election! Since he hasn't done a single substantive thing in Washington DC--he is a good Republican after all--and because of redistricting he has to defeat another Republican cypher, David Schweikert, to even get to the general election, our boy has doubled down. His latest ad concludes with the following:

"Two years ago I called him (Obama) the worst president in history. I overestimated him."

Ah, the exuberant ignorance of shallow youth...Let's get one thing straight. Ben Quayle is, to quote a line from "The Ruling Class", a piece of "upper class excrement." He has no new ideas, no solutions, no intellectual capacity at all, not even a fundamental understanding of the problems we face. He is nothing but a name, and honestly, it's not much of a name.
