    Benny bombed. I didn’t support him in his race, but my advice to him now is “Keep your day job.”

  2. Sgt. Preston says:

    Can Quayle spell E-M-B-A-R-R-A-S-S-M-E-N-T? (Hint:There’s no “E” on the end.)

  3. Sally Forth says:

    After watching his performance, I’d say he’d best not accept another invitation for a while. He’s inexperienced and just needs to acknowledge the fact that he has a sharp learning curve ahead of him. In the meantime, let those who can, do.

  4. Dennis O'Brien says:

    Rep. Quayle,
    Take a back seat until you’re ready for prime time. It’s not now.

  5. Frankly Speaking says:

    A boy in a man’s suit. What concerns me is he is in a man’s job during a very critical time in our history.

  6. Scott says:

    Could be a genetic predisposition.

  7. Jack Stan says:

    What an embarrassment. Can he at least ACT like an adult now that he’s a Congressman?
