My thoughts exactly as reading the headline.
Quayle was the first successful smearing of a conservative by the liberal media/entertainment elite who saw him as a threat. He was done in as much as anything by retold lies surfacing as jokes on late night TV.
Dan really took an undeserved beating. He was too nice of a guy.
AND...it was successful...Dan Quayle, despite being Vice-President of the United States, fell off the political radar, never to influence politics again...the writer is spot on...the parallels are there...the question becomes, what can Palin do to break away from this situation? Become a U.S. Senator? Spend time on the rubber chicken circuit, making her case to the Republican power elites that conservatism can win? Move to a more influential state to become governor?...magritte
