Dan Quayle’s son Ben Quayle releases terrifying political ad

Pin it

Can you be both terrifying and boring? That is the question answered by Ben Quayle's new campaign ad, and that answer is a resounding "Yes!" Quayle is running for a congressional seat in Arizona, and while his ad doesn't reach the LSD-tinged heights of Carly Fiorina's monster-sheep nightmares, there is a strange disconnect between his impassioned — if crazy — words and his complete lack of affect. Call it the "Patrick Bateman" school of campaigning:

While nothing says "intelligent political discourse" like the promise and/or threat to "knock the Hell out of" Washington, I am much more upset with his declaration that Barack Obama is the worst President in US history. Have we as a country forgotten William Henry Harrison, who managed to die of a cold he got while giving a speech for two hours in the rain without a coat? (JK — you can't get a cold from the rain. But still, that is not a strong showing, Billy.)

But anyway: Ben Quayle for Congress! He'll bore you… to death.
