Leftist Rocker John Mellencamp Changing Tune on Sarah Palin

I guess he's heard the "voice of freedom."

At The Hill, "
Democrat John Mellencamp Impressed With Sarah Palin" (via Texas for Sarah Palin):

The rocker John Mellencamp is a longtime Democrat who refused to allow his songs to be used by Republican Sen. John McCain on the 2008 presidential campaign.

But when it comes to McCain's 2008 running mate, Sarah Palin, Mellencamp may be changing his tune.

Mellencamp told the Associated Press on Friday that he admires the former Alaska governor, and that people get the wrong idea about Palin, "just because she says things and winks."

To achieve what Palin has accomplished thus far requires intelligence, and Mellencamp said Palin "knows exactly what's she doing."

"She wouldn't be where she is today if she didn't."
