JP: Sorry but not buying it. You simply cannot coin and publish “Dan Quayle with mammaries” and expect it to be received as a thoughtful cautionary note. The phrase was meant to cut. In Kuo’s defense, if Palin had bombed last night, he would have looked remarkably prescient. In re: Dan Quayle, he knocked off a sitting congressman and a sitting senator, was reelected with record margins, and sponsored or co-sponsored some important if dull legislation in the Senate.
