John Cougar Mellencamp like Sarah Palin

Supposed rock legend John Mellencamp is gushing his feelings on supposed politician Sarah Palin. According to Mellencamp, Palin "can't be stupid," contrary to what people naturally assume every time "she says things and winks." This may come as a surprise to the seven or so Americans who've kept up with Mellencamp enough to remember that he supported Obama in 2008, and that he asked Palin's running mate John McCain to stop using his songs on the campaign trail.

More political insights from a person who added the word 'Cougar' to his name include: Palin "is pushing the right buttons," Palin "knows exactly what she's doing," and Palin "is totally the prettiest."

Okay, the last one's not quite true, but it's close. Read the whole story here. We know, it's hard. But so is playing Farmville, and you keep doing that.

I thought being a rock star only made you deaf.

He's 59? Christ, he looks older than dirt. I think it's long past due that some of these aging Lotharios get over themselves, go home, put on the velvet smoking jacket and slippers, turn on the gas and retire to the rocker in the den.

Why put things in context, it's easier to just make comments off the cuff without thinking.
