From the Back Cover
Dan Quayle--once a mere heartbeat away from the leadership of the free world--amuses, puzzles, and often frightens the country and the world with his verbal misadventures.
"What a waste it is to lose one's mind, or not to have a mind is being very wasteful. How true that is."
From his seemingly perpetual youth, to his rise to the most ridiculed office in the land, to his recent political renaissance, this is Dan's story. Sort of.
"Scares the hell out of you, doesn't it?" -Richard Nixon, commenting on Quayle
About the Author
Deborah Werksman and Jeffrey Yoder were the founders and co-publishers of The Quayle Quarterly: A Watchful Eye on the Vice Presidency
, the national political satire magazine that reported on Quayle's exploits in the White House. They consider Quayle's bid for the presidency to be the "Q2K" problem, similar in scope and uncertainty to the Y2K computer bug, only with a lot more potential for humor.
