Rock group Heart, angry that its 70's hit "Barracuda" is being used as the unofficial theme song for Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin, is biting back at the Alaska governor.
"The Republican campaign did not ask for permission to use the song, nor would they have been granted that permission," according to a statement issued late on Thursday on behalf of the sisters.
Why do Republicans keep on trying to co-opt songs like this without first seeking out the right to use them? I remember when Reagan started to use "Born In The USA" until Bruce Springsteen asked him to stop (it was obvious the Reagan camp did not understand the song).
Hey Republicans! Leave artistic endeavors to Democrats, why doncha... stick to things you know like taking away our rights, wiretapping us, and gay sex in public restrooms!
