For the second straight election, African-American civil-rights activist Reverend Jarrett Maupin has endorsed Republican Congressman Ben Quayle.

Yes, politics aside, the Phoenix Democrat wants Quayle to stay in office -- mostly because he's a cool, young guy.

"He's my nigga," Maupin tells New Times.

Maupin's definitely not pleased with the kind of campaign Congressman David Schweikert -- Quayle's primary opponent -- is running, and after Schweikert recently made a big deal over Quayle going swimming in Israel, Maupin's speaking out in support of Quayle.

"To be degraded by your opponent because you're cool -- that should never be an issue," Maupin says.

The Reverend noted that Schweikert also was on that trip to Israel and wants to know what exactly Schweikert was doing during all this, since he's been on his high horse since the story came out.

"If he was in his bed bundled up under the blanket in his hotel room reading the New Testament, there's something peculiar about that -- and I'm a preacher," Maupin says. "Why didn't he get in the sea?"

Maupin says young people should stick with Quayle -- at least, the young Republicans should -- and says Quayle has more in common with Obama than he might think.

"Congressman Quayle represents an emerging new bench of talented Arizona political players," Maupin says in a prepared statement. "People should support him in the primary, 20 and 30 year-olds especially. He's cool, he's one of us."

Maupin further explained to us that on the "swagger test," Schweikert scores a "negative 10," and Quayle's somewhere in the middle -- "he's not Eminem."

All-in-all, Maupin thinks Quayle's a good, young leader -- like himself -- who isn't afraid to have a little fun now and then.

"He's my nigga, and I understand him," Maupin says. "I don't know how else to say it."

The endorsement of Quayle does not extend to the general election in November, Maupin added.

Let's see...Jarrett Maupin II is a federally-convicted-FELON, black, "Democrat" who lives in Quayle's OLD DISTRICT...and we're supposed to give a shit that Ben Quayle is his "nigga" because? You think there's a lot of "niggas" living and voting in the 9th District?

Al Sharpton is the real racist. I hope that dumb ass nigger catches cancer and croaks.

What Lil Wayne says to Reverend Al Sharpton goes for Maupin too.  Inhuman for starters.  yeah it's old already but more relevant than Al, Maupin or thedirtydumassQuail.

Sounds like Maupin is a part of the problem more than he is part of the solution.  He may think that language gives him some sort of street cred, but its the perpetuation of that type of language that continues to hold the civil rights movement back.  What an ass!

This smells like Jason Rose trying to do Schweikert a favor. For some inexplicable reason, Rose has a hotline to Maupin and employed him last cycle for Vernon Parker on the infinitely dumb "poster boy" controversy.

Maupin is just a dumb ass kid trying to pretend that he's relevant.

With this dipshit's endorsement, that swishing sound you hear is Ben Quayle's political career circling the bowl.

Maupin's an idiot.  He mistakes fashion...the idea of "cool"...for substance.  What a shallow a creep.  He and Quayle deserve each other.

How can Maupin endorse any candidate in the GOP, knowing what they stand for: lack of support for universal health care, restriction of access to voting, restriction of reproductive rights and tax breaks to the wealthy?  I am disgusted.

 @LegitQuestions I think what that P-town "Kid Sharpton" meant to say is:

"He's my [W]igga". Sex maniac pornstarish uber-Ben Quayle is white.

 

That "Uncle Tom" Nigg, is getting dumber by the year. Spending too much time in the "ghetto" makes him sound unprofessional everyday and of course......"ghetto". I would love for him to spend more quality time with the Tea Tards. Maybe that extra experience, will wise him up.
