Senator Mellencamp?

The Hill is reporting that rocker John Cougar Mellencamp is being actively drafted in Indiana to run for U.S. Senator.

Right.

This is the same guy who said

“I don’t think people fought and gave their lives so that some guy can sit in his bedroom and be mean. I don’t think that’s what freedom of speech is,” he continued. “Freedom of speech is really about assembly — for us to collectively have an idea. We want to get our point of view out so we can assemble and I can appoint you to be the spokesman. That’s freedom of speech — to be able to collectively speak for a sector of people. But somehow it’s turned into ‘I can be an a****** whenever I feel like, say whatever I like, be disrespectful to people and not be courteous.’ It’s not good for our society. Not being courteous is not really freedom of speech. …

To which I can only reply:

Gonna let it rock
Let it roooolllll
Let the bible belt come and save my so-wo-wol
Hold on to 16 as long as you can
Changes come around real soon
Make us Republi-can!


Excuse me while I go be disrespectful to people some more now.
