Esteemed Leader Dan Quayle Defends Palin

I nearly spit up my coffee reading this. Here's a great idea: find one of the stupidest, most unqualified picks for Vice President in the last century and trot him out to defend Sarah Palin:

[Former Vice President Dan] Quayle ... said every criticism leveled at Mrs. Palin was leveled "almost verbatim at me." He said, "People who supported us were called by the media and our opponents 'dumb' and 'mean-spirited.' " He added, "The liberal media are scared of effective conservatives."

Um, yeah. The "liberal" media was "scared" of you (and Palin) because you were "effective". Not, Mr. Quayle, because you were a feckless and incomprehensibly stupid douchebiscuit.

For anyone who may have forgotten, here are some of Vice President Quayle's greatest hits:
"I want to be Robin to Bush's Batman."

"What a terrible thing to have lost one's mind. Or not to have a mind at all. How true that is."

"Who's responsible for the riots? The rioters!"

"I deserve respect for the things I did not do."

"If we do not succeed, then we run the risk of failure."
