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:

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
