Daddy Quayle Defends Son Ben on Eve of Arizona Primary

August 24, 2010

(ChattahBox)—Former Vice President Dan Quayle issued a spirited defense of his son Ben on the eve of the Arizona primaries, amid revelations that he once wrote for a sex-themed blog, named Dirty Scottsdale that has since been expanded into the trashy national nightlife website Young Ben, 33, is running for a congressional seat in a crowded Republican primary, as a family values politician. And his main opponent, Steve Moak released an attack ad against Ben Quayle, to remind voters about his former “dirty” website contributions, such as “My moral compass is so broken, I can barely find the parking lot.” Papa Quayle said in a email, the attack ad was an attempt to “destroy my son and his reputation.”

Ben Quayle’s congressional campaign has been a bumpy one. First, he drew criticism for his “rent a kid” family values ad picturing him alongside adorable little girls that were not his children. Later, he released a mockable TV ad, in which he looks straight into the camera attacking President Obama, as the “worst president in history,” as he informs us that he “was raised right.”

Then poor Ben became outed by Hooman Karamian, aka, Nik Richie, the founder of DirtyScotsdale/, as the man formerly writing under the alias, “Brock Landers,” a fictional porn character in the film “Boogie Nights.” But Ben denies he’s “Brock Landers,” insisting he wrote for Dirty Scotsdale under a different pseudonym.

Ben’s dad calls the current website, which Ben denies any involvement in, a “vulgar website.”

According to Politico, Dan Quayle, came forward as a father to defend his son against vicious smears:

“I took my fair share of outrageous slams in politics, but Steve Moak’s vicious smear against my son is over the top and unprecedented,” Dan wrote. “I have never in my 35 years of politics seen such an ugly, slanderous assault in the closing days of a campaign against a fellow Republican.” […]

“Ben made a satirical, fictional posting on a blog three or four years ago commenting on night life in Scottsdale. That blog no longer exists. Ben had absolutely nothing to do with the vulgar website mentioned in the ad created and aired by Steve Moak,” he wrote.

Ben’s mom, also sent out an email supporting her son, echoing her husband’s comments, calling a “particularly vulgar website.”

With the help of his daddy’s rich friends, Ben Quayle raised more than $1.3 million for his campaign to become a U.S. congressman. Whether his war chest will carry him through today’s primary, despite the “dirty” controversy remains to be seen.

If the slightly built Ben Quayle does manage to make it to Washington come November, he has promised to “knock the hell out of the place.”

    Last I checked it was still a free Country. Seriously, who cares what he has to say? Personally, I think he is correct. President Obama has governed against the will of the people.

    Is this really the change that everyone expected? I think NOT!

    Poor Ben,life is tough.I’m sure he’s more qualified then all the other people running.They should just give him the position.He’ll make a great public servant.I hope he wins,because i know that he wants to make his parents proud,just like his Dad made all of America proud when he held public office.

    Gosh, “Boston Teaparty,” I didn’t realize that Obama had rammed through laws abrogating the First Amendment, that he had ordered the FBI to spy on American citizens and wiretap them without warrants, that he had started not one but two foreign wars on the basis of evidence that he knew to be false, nor that he had inherited a budget surplus from the previous President and turned it into a trillion dollar deficit. I though all the history books said that George W. Bush did that. Imagine my surprise to find that Obama was actually the President during the eight years between Clinton and… Obama. You want to talk about governing against teh will of the people? G.W. Bush is as close to A. Hitler as this country EVER needs to get.

    You probably ought to learn what “will of the majority” means. It does NOT mean “I hate Black people so they shouldn’t be President.”

    That’s why I never take it seriously when someone runs as a “family values” candidate. It is either an easy facade or it is a pseudonym for “against families different from mine.” What a loser.
