Dan Who?

It seems Dan Quayle finally found a way to get mentioned. He walked out of a John John Mellencamp concert. From MercuryNews:

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.

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 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."

Seems lyrics like "Bigotry and hatred are enemies to us all/ Grace, mercy and forgiveness/ Will help a man walk tall." were just a little too strong for Mr. Quayle.

But don't be to hard on Danny. Having you're beliefs challenged can be really scary.
