In Response to a Response: Jon Hulburd Weighs in on Ben Quayle's Response to Radio Ad; Quayle Responds

Democratic Congressional candidate Jon Hulburd
Since our earlier post about the new, morality-based radio ad run on Valley radio stations by Republican Congressional candidate Ben Quayle, his opponent, Democratic candidate Jon Hulburd, has responded.

Quayle's ad is in response to one of Hulburd's ads, and while we're not typically in the businesses of running responses to responses (to responses) -- it often leads to an endless, but entertaining, back-and-forth between candidates -- we believe in equal time, sort of. So check out Hulburd's response to Quayle's response (and then a response from Quayle) after the jump. Hulburd's response is fairly scathing -- as far as responses to responses go.

 
"Ben Quayle founded a sex-steeped website that refers to women as 'sperm catchers' and to Asians as 'noodles,' then he tried to lie about it and got caught," says Josh Abner, Hulburd campaign communications director. "Ben Quayle recognizes that he's in trouble with his conservative base. Voters who value honesty and integrity are running from the Quayle campaign. Remember, it's Ben Quayle himself who wrote, 'My moral compass is so broken
I can't even find the parking lot.'"

To clarify, Quayle claims he never "founded" the Web site, just contributed satirical posts to boost Web traffic. Either way, "The Dirty" has become the focal point of the campaign because Quayle's failed to answer several specific questions about his actual involvement.

In any event, Hulburd began running ads on Christian radio stations attacking Quayle and his alleged broken "moral compass."

In the ad, a woman says, "I've read that congressional candidate Ben Quayle helped create one of the most offensive Web sites I've ever seen." The ad is running on three Christian radio stations and a conservative talk station in Phoenix. "The site promotes drugs and prostitution, is filled with meanness and foul language, humiliates women, and even mocks people with Down syndrome," the lady goes on to say. 

Quayle responded with an ad of his own, in which he points out that the Christian demographic, to which Hulburd is relaying the message, probably wouldn't find Hulburd the most "moral" candidate considering he "uses his massive wealth to fund abortion lobbies" and doesn't oppose gay marriage -- two bugaboos among Christian zealots.

We contacted Quayle's campaign to get a response to Hulburd's response to Quayle's response to Hulburd's ad. You can find it below.

"It's just strange," Quayle's campaign spokesman, Jay Heiler, tells New Times. "The ad [Quayle's] covers no fewer than five real issues, and [Hulburd] doesn't respond to a single one of them. His campaign spokesman just continues to ignore facts, spread lies, and run an absurd campaign." 

In an effort to end our having to write the word "response," we'll leave it at that.

I expect nothing less from the liar Hulburd. It was clear to me that he was a joke of a candidate when I learned he is accepting money from the very Union who BOYCOTTS Arizona!! Who on earth would vote for a candidate so completely ANTI AZ? We are digging out already, the last thing we need is a shady, liar like Hulburd running his lazy ass around taking money from Unions. Keep this idiot out of politics in Arizona, he HATES our State and our businesses.
