Watch: Ben Quayle's New, Revised Butch Campaign Ad


In yesterday's Guide to the Tube, I posted Ben Quayle's new ad for his campaign for Congress. Rob Tisinai (we've shown you his instructive "kill the gays" bill video, among others) sent us Quayle's new ad, to which he's added a tiny tweak to butch it up a bit.

See if you can spot it, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. LOL! Does anyone take this man seriously? I think the question on every voter's mind is: Can he spell potato?

  3. I saw this ad yesterday and laughed out loud. First, he looks like a junior high school dweeb who got caught saying something bad about the high school quarterback and now has to add a little braggadocio to it before running off to hide.

    Second, he does look like he could "knock the hell" out a paper bag. He looks like he bruises easily.

    I'm paraphrasing someone else, but none the less, Ben Quayle will make us miss his father like GW Bush made us miss his.

  5. Anyone else picking up shades of Norman Bates?
    I was waiting to see a taxidermied bird on the wall behind him.

  6. Yes...get "huh" indeed!

  7. How long before he's arrested in an airport men's room?

  8. If he was "raised right", he'd speak better English.

  9. Perhaps "raised right" was a double entendre. Not a good one but none the less.

  10. No, no one takes him seriously. The other controversy surrounding Ben Quayle is that it's been revealed that he was one of the original contributors to the skank website TheDirtyScottsdale, which is now just

    It would be like electing a straight version of Perez Hilton to congress.

  11. Ben - Dan?

    Po-ta-toE - Po-tah-toE?

  12. Oh, just love the added touch. All I can ask is: Who was she? Who is she? Who does she hope to be?

  13. Remember when his Daddy said at a NAACP function, " What a terrible waste it is to lose one's mind." ? Seriously Ben, we have had enough of little boys that never got any "male bonding love" and need to try & impress their fathers, that's what got us into two unwinnable wars already. Stay home.

  14. He forgot to mention moron cartels in Indiana.

  15. What a pink turd.

    Even if you don't like Obama, its WAY too early to designate him the worst of anything....especially right after the abortion (that should have been) GWB! The reason we are suffering like we are is MOSTLY thanks to what GWB did and didn't do. Get fucking real.

  16. Poor Marilyn Quayle. Dan turned out to be a nonstarter -- his Dad's money could only get him appointed Senator and Vice President, an inadequate dud in Marilyn's eyes.

    Now she has a chance with Ben (who, btw, proves two wrongs don't make a right) to have a President, and its clear from his demeanor that Ben definitely will do whatever Mommy says, but as we can all see and hear, this kind of crap coming from a white male from Indiana has had its day.

    Maybe if he cross-dressed as Sarah Palin he'd have a wider appeal. Have any of his "stroke buddies" come forward?

  17. And, now we will see, "Tax Cartel of Washington" added to the vernacular of conservative talkers... great.

  18. By "raised right" does he mean being racist to people of, homophobic to GLBTs and cheating
    on his wife with prostitutes old enough to be his daughter!?

  19. He does know Mexico is not part of the USA right? He is totally the dork from a rich family in an 80s movie that winds up committing and rage fueled date rape.

  20. Haaaaa ha ha! Made my day.

  22. Quayle and Bobby Jindal should hook up. They're equally creepy.

  23. What's with all this cartelituding? He sounds about half as butch as his Mama.

    Posted by: gregorybrown | Aug 12, 2010 11:27:03 AM

  24. I'd only take him seriously in bed. :)

    Posted by: Pete | Aug 12, 2010 11:28:48 AM

  25. @GREGM - "If he was "raised right", he'd speak better English."

    Are you forgetting that he was raised by a man who, while VICE PRESIDENT of the US, told a kid in a spelling bee that she was eliminated for leaving the "e" off of the end of "potato"?

    Hardly the person to teach ole Ben about using proper English.
