Ben Quayle, Raised Right, Writes for TheDirty.com
If you see a politician cut a commercial in which he brags about his Christian ethics, then you know something's gonna pop up (bad visual pun, I know) that will just knock him down. It's called karma, baby.
Ben Quayle, son of "Worst VP in the History of Well Everything, Including Spelling" Dan Quayle, did recently brag on video that he was raised right and that's why he should be Arizona's next congressman, but it turns out that there's a bit more going on behind the scenes.
Shockingly enough, Mr. I've Been Raised Right guest blogged for the site TheDirty.com under the name Brock Landers. This story was broken by the liberal lamestream media, and of course Ben Quayle's camp spent a lot of energy denying the hell out of it.
To add to the hilarity, if you go to TheDirty.com, you'll see that the site has published a piece saying that Ben Quayle really is Brock Landers, really, despite all his public denials. If you want an afternoon of fun, read the comments.
So what's my take on all this? I'd say that 90% of the people in your life have some kind of hidden thing going on right now. They like to visit adult web sites, or they're swingers, or they just like to go clubbing and let it all hang out. So it's hard for me to get worked up about lifestyle choices.
What I do get worked up about is the hypocrisy. Don't say things like "I was raised right" and be part of a larger movement shoving your morality and Christian values in everyone's face and then run around buck naked on the weekends.
If at some point Mr. Quayle had just come out and said, "Yeah, I threw down some inappropriate blog posts a few times, just to pay the bills or drive traffic or because I liked it" then I would have had a little bitty bit of respect. Not much, but just a little.
Instead, what he ends up looking like is a hypocritical ignoramus, and not simply a run-of-the-mill ignoramus.
True to form, though, Ben Quayle has won the GOP primary for his congressional seat. I wonder if any of the women Ben Quayle wrote about will vote for him in the general election?
PS. TheDirty.com has published a series of questions people should ask Ben Quayle about his life. More hilariousness.
