The Walls Come Tumblin' Down

john-mellencamp.jpg

Speculation continues to increase that rocker John Mellencamp may run for Evan Bayh's Senatorial seat in Indiana. The liberal singer would not face any primary challenges and simply have to be selected by the Democratic state central committee. Mellencamp's qualifications for Senate include having played at the White House and at the Obama inauguration. His support of John Edwards' presidential campaign reveals a sharp politcal instinct as well.

Has it really come down to this for the Democrats? One can only wonder who they'll turn to if Mellencamp hires a pollster. Is Woody Boyd back in Hanover?

Hank:

Mellancamp is the perfect democrat.
Per Reason, Mellancamp had this to say last december:

"When Reagan was president, the way they treated the small family farm, running them out of business," he says. "How in the hell can a small family farm compete with the laws leaning toward corporate farming? What's the little guy going to do?"

Interesting since the Mellancamps of Indiana received a LOT of farm subsidies.

$383,673.00 James A. and Michael Mellencamp
$249,590.95 George Mellencamp
$157,219.56 David K. Mellencamp
$152,639.65 Mark Mellencamp
$152,424.00 Gary W. Mellencamp
$110,052.72 Mary Mellencamp
$46,172.47 Elsie Mellencamp
$30,527.87 Matthew Grover Mellencamp
$10,929.31 Frederick J. Mellencamp
$2,582.14 Jerry Ross Mellencamp
$1,015.00 Victor H. Mellencamp
$420.00 Andrew Mellencamp

That's $1.14 million for the small-town Mellencamps between 1995-2003.

I wonder if Mellancamp will campaign against pork barrel spending.

I don't have a very high opinion of Mellencamp, but I think he's too intelligent for the Senate. I'm pretty sure his IQ score is higher than 0.99

914:

Cougarama for Obama? I wonder if He would be seen within 200 mile's of the Siezer camp seeing the dismal policy failure and inability to enact socialism for the good of us all?

Yeah, probably. Liberal's make good music but are inept at making other's understand their greatness in social policy's and especially in the field of meteorology and logic.

James Cloninger:

If you can make an actor president why not a rock musician?

Because said actor had executive and managerial experience, first by heading the Presidency of the Actors Guild, and then by 8 years of governorship of California.

And what has Cougar done? Paint a few pictures, wrote a few songs that hit the top of the charts and smoke 3 packs of cigarettes a day...

...then again, even HE is more qualified than Obama.

That's about as bad as running a bad action star for the gubernator of California, or some guy from L.A.Law for president, or a B movie western actor for Governor of California, then president, or 1/2 of Sonny and Cher (the less talented half) for the Senate. Good thing Republicans hate this stuff.
