From Mock, Paper, Scissors:
The son of former Vice President Dan Quayle plans to announce his candidacy March 31 for the U.S. House seat that’s now held by retiring Republican Rep. John Shadegg.
Ben Quayle, a 33-year-old lawyer and managing director of a Scottsdale investment firm, will officially enter a crowded primary field of at least five other Republicans interested in the seat.
Lawyer? OK – I’m fine with that.
“Managing director” of an “investment firm”? Hmmmmm…Let me translate:
Ben Quayle, a 33-year-old rich brat who has managed to acquire a law degree but whose actual accomplishment in life consists of lounging around in Scottsdale playing with piles of money in ways that will allow him to claim on the campaign trail that he knows how to run a business even though what he has been doing is nothing more than Las Vegas gambling without the neon and silicone, will officially enter a crowded primary field of at least five other rich brats and/or theocrats and/or teabaggers interested in the seat.
We broke away from England to escape the tyranny of royalty – yet it only has one House of Lords.
