Why Raise Hell When You Can Raise McCain?


So I woke up this morning and heard on the radio that John McCain's getting sued for using Running on Empty, a song by Jackson Browne, in one of his anti-Obama ads without permission. That McCain, what a maverick.

I doubt he's losing sleep over it though, because another artist, John Rich, actually digs McCain enough to give him his own song. It's called Raisin' McCain, and while it bears a slight satirical resemblance to Raining McCain in name and subject matter, Rich's effort is actually not a joke.

That's some catchy shit right thar. And is it just me, or do sequins give our star-spangled banner a little more oomph?

f scott key lost his copyright a long time ago
as it was he swiped the music which was probably in public domain
the only instance i know of a composer outliving his
copyright was irving berlin saying goodbye to legal protection on alexander's ragtime band when the great berlin was 94......
