    I have to stick up for Quayle here – Phoenix is where people from California used to go to vacation away from their own state, so the city was constantly over-run by Californians. People from that age and area understood that. It’s like me complaining about Pennsylvania drivers – I would know, I grew up in southern Delaware. Pennsylvanians tend to resort down on Delaware’s beaches, and they drive down there. From May to September, there are more PA cars on the road than locals. Same concept. And we all know how the media loves to take words out of context!

    Quayle got a bad rap; he’s actually not that bad of a man. The other quotes are funny, especially the first one!

    That’s the thing – I am always reluctant to speak at all because I’ve was raised with all the adages, e.g., better to let people think you’re stupid than to open your mouth and prove it.

    Well, like LS said, isn’t it sad that the people spouting this stuff are all making a lot more money than we are? Who are the real dummies here?

    So, I don’t have to worry about the world remembering me for saying “Pheonix” or spelling “potatoe,” but that’s mainly because I would never be thought of as a candidate for anything, because I “learned how ta keep my mouth shut.” Oh, well.
