McCain's serial, unrepentant larceny

I can't believe this is a story yet again. First Mellencamp told him to back off, then he helped himself to the work of Tom Petty, ABBA, Frankie Valli, Jackson Brown, John Hall and Mike Myers. Even after I offered the campaign some very sage (and free!) advice, they're still continuing their pillaging rampage! Their latest victim is Van Halen.

Will it be their last?

Last night during the convention, I heard the campaign playing Johnny B. Goode -- what do you think are the chances that John "Gimme Gimme" McCain got permission from Chuck Berry* before he helped himself to his music? We'll see...

*Chuck Berry did perform for a real president at the White House once -- at the request of Jimmy Carter.
