AUTHORITY ALWAYS WINS
On Friday April 27th, John Mellencamp performed an intense hour-long set at Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington, DC -- one day after visiting with wounded soldiers. The facility has been at the center of a political storm since this past February, when the Washington Post revealed that many of the patients were receiving sub-par care in severely deteriorated buildings. Many of the soldiers were happy to see Mellencamp (one even played guitar while Mellencamp sang "Pink Houses"). Some maintained it was hypocritical of the singer to visit, citing his staunch anti-war position. "I say if you're not supporting what we're doing you're not supporting me," said Mike Shaw, a combat engineer from Corona, California who broke his back in Iraq last month when he was hit by an IED.

Originally Mellencamp was scheduled to perform two songs with Joan Baez and be interviewed by Dan Rather, but Walter Reed officials refused to give Baez or Rather clearance.

Fake but non grata!

Via See-Dubya at Hot Air, who also provides this Orwell quote on wartime pacifists:

"Pacifism is objectively pro-Fascist. This is elementary common sense. If you hamper the war effort of one side you automatically help that of the other..."

Why is it that the people who love to quote things like "Oceania has always been at war with Eurasia" never quote Orwell on that one?
