    Re: "Senate You're No Jack Kennedy

    One of the great quips in American political history. I was on board the Bush-Quayle bandwagon back then, and even I saw that one coming as Danny used the "John F. Kennedy was younger than I am" declaration time after time. I remember thinking, "Shut your piehole about that, you stupid little SOB, or somebody's gonna nail you on it." I'm seldom that precognative.

    The best response to the quote came from -- of all sources -- "Saturday Night Live" the following week but was lost in the national hilarity over the "Kennedy" remark. One of the SNL "newscasters" noted that Dukakis had asked the American public if they wanted a man like Quayle "a breath away from the presidency." The comedian added, "If the Dukakis-Benson team takes the White House, do we really want a man like Benson who's a breath away from his last breath?"

    That's NOT a shot at Benson, an honorable and respected man, so I didn't violate my own "one week rule." I just thought that it was a great line that didn't get its due in the wake of Lloyd's devastating put-down of the severely overmatched Quayle. PeteLewo.

    I once saw vice president Quayle by mistake.
    I was waiting for the city bus by the bus stop and he drove by in his U.S Goverment issued limosine.
