    Default John Mellencamp Defends Sarah Palin's Intelligence



    John Mellencamp Defends Sarah Palin's Intelligence)

    NEW YORK Former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin has found an admirer in John Mellencamp.

    The legendary rocker says that while he doesn't support her positions, he is impressed by the mark she's made on the country since the 2008 election.

    Mellencamp says people get the wrong idea about her intellect "just because she says things and winks."

    He says she "knows exactly what's she doing" and "she wouldn't be where she is today if she didn't."

    Mellencamp gives Palin credit for handling the rough world of politics. He says "she's pushing the right buttons" and "you can't be stupid and do that."

    The 59-year-old rocker is no stranger to the political arena. He supported Barack Obama's campaign in 2008 and asked Palin's running mate, John McCain, to stop using his songs at rallies.

    I think he's saying that she's quite crafty and cunning. I don't think he's defending her intelligence when it comes to actual "book smarts". I think he's saying that she's smart enough to know how she needs to act to win over her supporters and to keep herself in the news.

    Same here. And I don't think we are doing ourselves any favors underestimating Palin's guile and street smarts, which do count as a form of intelligence.

    "John Mellencamp Defends Sarah Palin's Intelligence..."

    ...and betrays his own.

    I do agree with Flakey and Ganj though. But my point still stands.

    I agree. She knows how to manipulate and market herself.

    It's foolish to dismiss her. She's extremely cunning, as others have said, and will do anything to win, no matter how dishonest, as long as she can get away with it. Sarah Barracuda, indeed. Kudos to Mellencamp for being brave enough to say this. Laugh at her at your own peril. All of her enemies, from Wasilla to Washington, will attest to how dangerous it is to cross her. Woe to the Un-American Americans!

    Agree. Cunning and guile, having an innate sense of where to be and what to do to take advantage of a situation is a kind of ..*hate to say it* 'intelligence'. This is kind of why she is an overachiever IMO.

    Fortunately her many other defects will always counter this I think !


    *And yeah, he is old. He is nearly 60 years old..what do people expect? He looks his age. Is that a crime? Not everyone ages the same way. And it is not like he really ever tried to ride any wave based on his looks, so I guess I do not get the 'looks' thing? ???
