When that song came out, McCain was only 90

The Wilson sisters sent a cease and desist to McCain/Palin because they used "Barracuda" by Heart at the end of the RNC. It makes sense: For a rock musician, affiliation with a Republican campaign could be a career-ender. Whoops, too late!

Well, they'll have no problem paying for the lawyer, what with all the money they made tonight on iTunes.

P.S. I like Kaus, but some things he says are less smart than others. Here's one from last night:

Palin Speech: Very effective, as expected. Big loser: Hillary. Maybe Hillary's handicaps (e.g., inability to zing opponents without seeming haughty or testy) aren't barriers facing all women after all. [Point stolen from someone in the crowd.] ... Trig is already becoming a bit of a prop, however. ... 11:39 P.M.

Prop? What were they supposed to do, leave him in the car?

P.P.S. And if she'd handed the kid off backstage to a Secret Service guy with a towel over his shoulder, inevitably somebody would say she was ashamed of Trig and trying to hide him.
