Ben Quayle "Goes Both Ways," According to David Schweikert


Now here's a campaign mailer worthy of the Daily Show's "Moment of Zen."

We actually had to check the fine print on this one to make sure TheDirty.com's Nik Richie didn't start a political-action committee.

As you may know, accusing someone of going both ways can have a few different meanings, and we weren't sure what we were about to read on the back of this mailer -- an attack piece from Congressman David Schweikert's campaign targeting his primary opponent, Congressman Ben Quayle.

Turns out, it's nothing groundbreaking -- just a claim from Schweikert that Quayle's actions are different from his words:
