Mellencamp, unaware that Quayle was in the audience, introduced the song “Walk Tall” by saying, “This next one is for all the poor people who’ve been ignored by the current administration.”

Quayle, who was in town for a celebrity golf tournament, then made his exit, deciding “enough was enough,” his spokesman, Craig Whitney, told the Los Angeles Times for Friday’s edition. “He wasn’t going to sit there and listen to this.”

I admit that a rock concert isn’t exactly an ideal forum for debating issues, but the fact that this is a story (stirred up by the former-VP/forever-idiot’s PR flak) makes it comment-able fodder. So my comment is this:

Inability to take criticism and walking out when criticism is made is a hallmark of the Bush (Part II) administration, and explains why it has so many problems on its hands. Oh, and the Bush administration ignores the plight of America’s poor. Now sit your ass down, Dan, and try to understand why people keep saying it.
