VP Reprise with McCain? Quayle Says He’s ‘Rested and Ready’

INDIANAPOLIS – At a press conference here today, former vice president Dan Quayle told reporters he’s “rested and ready” and prepared to “help Sen. McCain win the White House” in 2008.

The Indiana Republican, a former US senator and vice president in the administration of George H. W. Bush from 1988 to 1992, claimed that he had the “kind of wide-body life experiences” Mr. McCain needs in a vice president and would “be assetable” to the Republican candidate’s chances.

“I believe that I have been road-tested and trialed and I have found myself willing,” said Mr. Quayle, “and I could do for Sen. McCain what I did for President Bush’s father – put him over the top with the Republican Party baseline.”

“I’ve been there and done that,” continued the former vice president, “and I can do it all over again. I’m rested and ready and set to rip into this campaign like a tissue paper tiger.”

“Look at it this way,” Mr. Quayle summed up, “if we can deposit men on Mars, as we have been doing, we can get a Republican elected president this year, and I’m just the astronaut to help Sen. McCain win the White House.”

As he left the podium, Mr. Quayle mimicked dialing a phone and whispered, “Johnny, call me.”

Reached last night, McCain campaign manager Rick Davis had no comment on the former vice president’s offer.

  1. In case you haven’t noticed yet, this isn’t true — just cheap satire to get a laugh. (If it somehow turns out to be true, slap a baggy beret on my head and call me Nostradamus.)

  3. Boom, boom, out goes the lights! Of course, Quayle’s lights have been out since he was born, so maybe he wouldn’t even notice a little ‘shotgun’ present from Deadeye Dick. “Another hole in my head? OH, BOY, fresh air!”
