More than 20 years later, it’s official — Dan Quayle isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed.

Yes, I’ve been refreshing the news every hour for the past two weeks in hopes that I could find out who Quayle would endorse.

Oh Yeah!

They said you were stupid, but I stood up for you and blamed the moon-bat teacher for misspelling potato on her flash card.

Oh Yeah!

They said you ate $h!+ sandwiches, but I stuck up for you...I told them you didn’t like bread.

As did Maryland’s ex-governor two time loser RINO Ehlich. This RINO was pathetic in last November’s election and got slaughtered. Not surprised he likes Romney,

Wow, how disappointing to see so many pick up the Liberal’s dagger in their line of attack on Quayle. Regardless of what you think about Romney as a candidate, Quayle is a good man. His son is also upholding the Conservative line admirably in Congress.

DQ may have been a good conservative, but was picked as veep only b/c he would be a good yes man. Poppy and W wasted opportunities by not selecting veeps that could’ve gone on to run for prez someday.

Years have gone by when we should’ve been developing the bench.

I do too. I hadn't given any thought to who he might endorse but i don't think i would have guessed Romney. Perhaps he simply feels that this is coming down to a two man race and so between Romney & Gingrich he favors Romney out of a dislike for Gingrich's personal life. In other words, Romney scores much higher on the "family values" scale. Maybe that was the deciding factor in his mind.

Dan must be a Newt supporter. Endorsing Mitt is the best thing he can do for Gingrich...
