Rob Tisinai takes a run at Ben Quayle's batshitcrazy campaign ad. Original here. See if you can spot Rob's tweaks...

And Rob's excellent blog is here.

Loved the "Jeffrey" reference at the end.

Thanks for making me sit through that entire crapfest again for a mild chuckle at the end.

Ben is too good-looking to be straight, methinks.

Well, he's definitely Quayle's son.
I haven't seen that much bullshit slung with a poker (I'm not saying straight) face since 2008.
Can't say I miss it though. When does his sex tape come out?

My Perilous Toe Hold On Fame: In 1992, I disrupted a speech his father was giving to the NY Conservative Party about a week before the election. At the time, he was getting a lot of guff for having been a draft-dodger during the Viet Nam War, so I jumped up out of my chair with my fellow ACT UP co-conspirators and yelled, "When are you going to talk about AIDS, Dan? You can't dodge the AIDS Crisis, Dan!"

I have respected the Secret Service ever since, as they immediately appeared and whisked me out of there before the blood-thirsty neanderthals in the NY Conservative Party tore me limb from limb, first pausing to jovially ask me, "Are you all done or is there more?"

De tal palo, tal astilla.

Good lord, that's the stupidest thing I've seen all day.

I mean, before the Patrick Stewart part. I love that guy.

@10, It's true. I would totally gay-marry Patrick Stewart for his voice alone.

Could Babs look any hotter than in The Owl and The Pussycat?

Nerd Alert:

Patrick Stewart and his Earl Grey tea (Yum! and Yum!). And yes, that was a reference to Earl Gray the lawyer, as well.

I was studiously trying to tell what was different and that ending really got me. I love Patrick Stewart!
