Oh man, when even Dan Quayle walks out on your performance, you know your career is over.
Dan Quayle took time out from participating in the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship in Stateline, Nev., on Friday to attend John Mellencamp's concert only to run into a political statement.Ladies and gentlemen, give it up for rock critic Dan Quayle!
He then made a statement of his own by walking out during Mellencamp's rendition of ``Walk Tall.'' Before launching into the song, 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.''
If I were Quayle (ewww), I think I’d be careful of criticizing other’s professional performances.
And why is it wrong, wrong, wrong for performers to make political statements* but OK for politicians to discus a movie or music?
*This rule only applies to liberals and not to conservative actors and musicians like Charlton Heston, Ron Silver, Gary Sinise, James Woods or Toby Keith
