Dan Quayle walks out on John Mellencamp


Hmmm...it must've been something he said. Former VP Dan Quayle walked out of a John Mellencamp concert after Mellencamp dedicated his song "Walk Tall" to everyone who had been hurt by policies of the current Bush administration.

What was Quayle's problem with that? "Well, I think Mellencamp's performance was not very good to begin with, and the comment put it over the top."

Over the top of Quayle's head, he means.

Mr. Bog: We were going to say "Over the top of Quayle's potatoe head..." but we were afraid no one would get it. So thank you for sticking your "toe" in it.

WTF is Dan Quayle still doing in public? His very presence represents everything many people dislike about republicans.

Exigent: We were wondering the same thing ourselves. Apparently, the oblivious just don't know when to stay in oblivion. Are you listening, Newt Gingrich?

OMG this is priceless...Dan Quayle's fan page biography here: http://www.vicepresidentdanquayle.com/biography.html

states:
"Dan Quayle is widely considered to have been one of the most active Vice Presidents in history."

...and...

"Dan Quayle developed a large national following and became one of the most admired Americans of his time."

Exigent: That is priceless. The site also says that Quayle was "chairman of the National Space Council." Apropos!

He wants to run in 2008. He needs attention.
