If you have some smooth needle noze pliers (part of a typical plier an cutter kit, which any breadboarder should have) you can simply pinch the bent leads lengthwise and straighten them. I do it all the time.

I find sometimes that these switches' leads (salvaged from PCBs) are too short to reliably stay in contact with the breadboard's contacts. I've soldered short pieces (~3/8") of #22 solid wire on each leg...that works and doesn't damage the breadboard.

I keep IC sockets handy, and insert parts with strange or short leads into them. Then the IC sockets insert into the breadboard.
