Q is for Quotable Quayle

The 44th Vice President of the United States was Dan Quayle.  He served from 1989 - 1993 alongside President George H.W. Bush.    Regardless of whatever good Quayle accomplishes, he will forever be linked to a spelling bee and spelling the word "potato" incorrectly.  Dan Quayle would take a few (to be generous) dings in his intelligence factor.

We all have our days. We all say things without thinking.  But it seems that Quayle continued to add evidence to the pile that he was a bit of a fool.  What follows are some of his quotes.  See what you think.

[This blog post is purely for entertainment sake and does not reflect any bearing on my political leanings.  Let it be noted that I am very glad that the media does not quote every stupid thing that comes from my mouth!]     

"I love California.  I practically grew up in Phoenix."

"It isn't pollution that is harming the environment. It's the impurities in our air and water that are doing it."

"I have made good judgments in the past.  I have made good judgments in the future." 

"It is wonderful to be here in the great state of Chicago."

"A low voter turn out is an indication of fewer people going to the polls."

"Quite frankly, teachers are the only profession that teach our children."

"It's a very good historical book about history."

"I understand the importance of bondage between parent and child."

Which of these quotes do you think tops the charts as sounding most idiotic?

Ooh, it's hard to choose, those are all pretty...well...dumb. But the third one made me laugh. And I concur: good thing the media doesn't cover every dumb thing that comes out of my mouth either!

He sure enjoyed putting his foot in his mouth on more than one occasion! I love the California/Phoenix one; needs to learn his geography just a bit better.

As long as we have politicians we'll never be short of something to laugh about.
