No but if your mom tried to be caustic, this is how it would come out.

That's the whitest "mama joke" ever.

Your mother is so gauche, she ate her cucumber sandwich with her LEFT hand while reaching for a PAPER DOILY to wipe her mouth.

Oh, goodness, snap.
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

After Heart and Foo Fighters, now Bon Jovi has objected to the McCain/Palin campaigns using their song at rallies.

Don't these fuckers think of this BEFORE selecting a song? it seems very shoot-in-foot to always have people saying "we don't endorse this!" It's not like they're ever going to run out of Hank 3 songs, is it.

Todd, your mom is much more caustic and in-the-know than mine, apparently.

Just go back and read the quotes in the voice of the mother from Freaks and Geeks.
"How do they see you when there's no light?"

These artists gave up their right to complain about people they don't like doing public performances of their songs when they started cashing those ASCAP checks.

Actually, they can complain all they want, but it annoys me when bands like Heart get lawyers involved given that they don't have a legal leg to stand on.  (Using a song in an ad is a different story of course.)

Hmmm ... Maybe as a symbolic move, Heart and all those other bands could write out a check to the McCain campaign, representing their ASCAP share for the play of their song at a McCain Nuremberg rally event. I'm sure it would be a very piddling amount. Pennies.

The next move would be to multiply that figure by 666 and issue a check for that amount to the Obama campaign.

(Is it just a coincidence that YesNo's comment on this topic is the 666th post on this thread?)

I've been thinking that maybe the liberal media filter had been exaggerating the shocking behavior at Republican rallies. Then I saw this:

Wow. Scary stuff, and weird. Al-Jazeera reporting from Ohio? Imagine if those interviewees knew they'd been talking to an Al-Jazeera reporter - they would have torn him limb from limb!
