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.Wah wah wah.
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.
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…
