    He's trying to be the Michelle Bachmann of 2016.

      here, but it is not nice to use terms like Repugnicans or DemoncRats like some do.  May we be more civil, please?

      Warmest regards,

      Doc

          Quayle: Three times that I've had this question — and I will try to answer it again for you, as clearly as I can, because the question you're asking is, "What kind of qualifications does Dan Quayle have to be president," "What kind of qualifications do I have," and "What would I do in this kind of a situation?" And what would I do in this situation? [...] I have far more experience than many others that sought the office of vice president of this country. I have as much experience in the Congress as Jack Kennedy did when he sought the presidency.

          Woodruff: (Admonishing applauders) Please, please, once again you are only taking time away from your own candidate.

          Quayle: That was really uncalled for, Senator. (Shouts and applause.)

          Bentsen: You are the one that was making the comparison, Senator — and I'm one who knew him well. And frankly I think you are so far apart in the objectives you choose for your country that I did not think the comparison was well-taken.

      It's Morning in America (and the GOP has a hangover).
