Dan Quayle on Welfare & Poverty
Vice President of the U.S., 1989-1993; Former Republican Senator (IN)
At the Emmy Award ceremony that year, the creator of the Murphy Brown show, Diane English, was showered by awards. English took the occasion to say, "I would like to thank our sponsors for hanging in there when it was getting really dangerous." Insomuch as the entire awards program was a Quayle-bashing festival, it's hard to believe any of them were even in much "danger" of Dan Quayle.
The New York Times denounced Quayle's Murphy Brown speech in an editorial, sniffing, "He seems seriously to believe that what poor people most need is moral fiber."
