Hoosier Showdown

Indiana’s greatest political mind, former Vice President Dan Quayle, took time out of his busy schedule of golfing on Friday to attend a concert of fellow Hoosier John Mellencamp, only to get his panties in a big ol’ twist:
Before launching into [his rendition of “Walk Tall”], Mellencamp told the Harveys casino crowd, in effect, that it was dedicated to everyone hurt by policies of the current Bush administration.

Quayle, who served as vice president for President Bush's father in 1989-93 walked out of the venue before Mellencamp finished the song. Quayle said through a publicist: “Well, I think Mellencamp's performance was not very good to begin with, and the comment put it over the top.''

Mellencamp couldn't be reached for comment.
Wah wah wah.

Oh, but ain't that America, for you and me
Ain't that America, we're somethin' to see, baby
Ain't that America, the home of the free
Little pink houses for you and me…
