The Quayles: Stupid Even Unto The Seventh Generation

Posted by That Other Mike on 08/02/2011

There’s a funny/stupid quote from Ben Quayle, son of the infamous potatoe-writer, going around at the moment, taken from an editorial he wrote for Politico. In this editorial, like most modern wingnuts, he attempts to fellate the decaying corpse of Reagan’s reputation back to life by using shitty metaphors:

“When I was a child, President Ronald Reagan was the nice man who gave us jelly beans when we visited the White House. I didn’t know then, but I know it now: The jelly beans were much more than a sweet treat that he gave out as gifts. They represented the uniqueness and greatness of America — each one different and special in its own way, but collectively they blended in harmony.”

What makes it even funnier, though, is if you imagine it being read by Morgan Freeman; like some twisted part of Shawshank which ended up on the cutting room floor.
