    Dan Quayle thinks Donald Trump is a “more qualified” candidate than Hillary Clinton and the Republican Party should rally around him. The former vice president, who served under George H.W. Bush, appeared on NBC’s Today show Thursday and said that Trump was more qualified than Clinton in this particular election because people want an outsider.

    I knew an Old Timey, Clawhammer banjo player who was from so far south in New Jersey that culturally his home was south of the Mason Dixon line. He was in the Navy, at Norfolk, some Limey sailors came into a bar, Jersey-Dixie immediately commenced with The Battle of New Orleans, as you can hear here in Old Timey Clawhammer style, it may have originated in that milieu: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LeQMYrSUwlg Unfortunately, a banjar makes an excellent club for a barroom brawl.

    With political observations ranging from the firestorm of protest over the Religious Freedom law in Indianapolis to the Mideast threat that is Iran to the 2016 presidential election, former U.S. Vice President Dan Quayle was candid in his Tuesday night return to his DePauw University alma mater. With his visit as an Ubben Lecture Series guest coinciding with the uproar over Indian's passage of the controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), Quayle tackled the question both leading off his late-afternoon press conference and again during a conversational give-and-take with DePauw Professor Jeff McCall. "From what I know about it," Quayle...

    Joe Biden made three (or perhaps four) gaffes this past week, but a recent public speaking mishap might have flown under the media radar. In that instance, the VP seemingly made up a president who never existed. In a trifecta this week, the Democrat had to apologize for using the perceived anti-Semitic term “Shylocks,” referred to Asia as “the Orient” which was deemed offensive to Asian Americans, and praised former colleague Bob Packwood — a lawmaker who was chased out of the U.. Senate amidst sexual harassment charges in 1995 — in front of a women’s group. In August, moreover,...

    Hidden just below the surface of the liberal media is a barely noticed trend of patronizing contempt: Joe Biden is the Democrats' Dan Quayle, but because he is a Democrat they'll do anything to avoid treating him like they treated Dan Quayle. The Washington Post trumpeted a new poll recently that showed Hillary Clinton was cleaning Biden's clock in an early poll among Democrats, 73 percent to 12. The Post saw that as great news for Hillary, but not as disastrous news for the man who's currently in his second term as vice president. Try to imagine Al Gore pulling...

    Almost exactly 20 years ago, Barbara Dafoe Whitehead wrote a controversial essay for The Atlantic titled “Dan Quayle Was Right.” In case you’ve forgotten (or never knew), let me fill you in on what Quayle was right about. There once was a popular sitcom called Murphy Brown. The title character, played by Candice Bergen, was a news anchor. The show had its moments, but it was also insufferably pleased with itself and its liberalism. At least until the arrival of the Aaron Sorkin oeuvre (The West Wing, The Newsroom), it set the standard for such things. Murphy Brown was rich,...

    This column was co-authored by Bob MorrisonSen. John Kerry has a long and dubious record in foreign policy. In the 1970's, he testified against his fellow Vietnam War veterans before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. He charged that they were violating the Geneva Conventions every day in Vietnam. Some POWs were outraged at Kerry's disloyal statements. They said they had been tortured by their Communist captors trying to force them to make such untrue statements. Worse, Kerry went to Paris in 1971. There, he met with North Vietnamese Communists. We need to see all his notes from those meetings....
  • Schweikert defeats Quayle (McCain, Kyl, Rice endorsed Quayle)

    Washington Post ^ | 8/29/12 | Sean Sullivan
    Rep. David Schweikert (R-Ariz.) defeated fellow freshman Republican Rep. Ben Quayle Tuesday, bringing to an end one of the cycle’s most heated member-versus-member primaries. With 94 percent of precincts reporting, Schweikert led Quayle 53 percent to 47 percent, according to the Associated Press, which called the race for Schweikert. Arizona gained an additional House seat following the decennial redistricting process. The new lines also prompted some reshuffling among the state’s current delegation. Quayle was faced with a choice: run in the swing 9th district or the more Republican 6th district. He chose the latter last winter, setting off a fierce...

    Roll Call ^ | July 13, 2012 | Abby Livingston
    Sen. John McCain has informed Rep. David Schweikert that he will endorse Rep. Ben Quayle in their Member-versus-Member Republican primary in Arizona, according to a Schweikert source. Schweikert did not seek McCain’s endorsement. Those in the Schweikert camp are under the impression that Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl (R) helped facilitate the endorsement. The Hotline first reported the news. “He had the screws put to him hard by Kyl to do it,” the source said. Rumblings about a McCain endorsement have been making the rounds in Arizona Republican circles for the past month or so. Quayle already has Kyl’s endorsement and...

    20 Years Later, It Turns Out Dan Quayle Was Right About Murphy Brown And Unmarried Moms Isabel Sawhill May 25. On May 19, 1992, as the presidential campaign season was heating up, Vice President Dan Quayle delivered a family-values speech that came to define him nearly as much as his spelling talents. Speaking at the Commonwealth Club of California, he chided Murphy Brown — the fictional 40-something, divorced news anchor played by Candice Bergen on a CBS sitcom — for her decision to have a child outside of marriage. “Bearing babies irresponsibly is simply wrong,” the vice president said. “Failing...

    The following is the text of a campaign radio spot running on Phoenix area radio stations for Ben Quayle, (former VP Dan’s son) who’s locked in a primary battle with fellow Republican David Schweikert for the Republican nomination to an Arizona congressional seat: I’m Congressman Ben Quayle. Washington has treated Arizona with contempt. Instead of securing our borders President Obama has sued our state and made a mockery of our laws . . . Deadly drug cartels terrorize Mexico and menace our communities. And the Obama Justice Department gives us “Fast and Furious,” an outrageous scheme to sell thousands of...

    Taking Aim at Santorum: The Romney Campaign Misfires. FEB 20, 2012, VOL. 17, NO. 22 • BY JONATHAN V. LAST On Saturday, February 4, a national poll from Rasmussen Reports showed Rick Santorum as the only Republican to lead President Obama in a head-to-head matchup. The next morning, a PPP poll showed Santorum suddenly leading Mitt Romney in Minnesota. So the Romney campaign responded with what are becoming its trademark tactics. Having completely ignored Santorum since New Hampshire, on Sunday afternoon the Romney team sent out a press release calling him “a proud defender of earmarks and pork-barrel spending.” The...

    Scarborough, Maine -- [...] In recent years, many top-selling brands - including the 195-year-old Remington Arms, as well as Bushmaster Firearms and DPMS, leading makers of military-style semiautomatics - have quietly passed into the hands of a single private company. It is called the Freedom Group - and it is the most powerful and mysterious force in the U.S. commercial gun industry today. Never heard of it? You're not alone. Even within gun circles, the Freedom Group is something of an enigma. Its rise has been so swift that it has become the subject of wild speculation and grassy-knoll conspiracy...
