Forgive me for repeating myself, but:
Previously, I posed the question, what is so hard about getting permission before using someone else’s work for your campaign? Exhibits A-D:
- Oops! Tom Petty sends Michele Bachmann a cease-and-desist letter.
- Note to Gingrich from The Heavy: Cease and desist. How you like them now, Newt?
- Newt Gingrich sued for using ‘Eye of the Tiger’ in campaign
- NBC News Asks Romney Campaign to Remove Ad
Stepping on other people, exploitation, doing whatever they want–with no foresight– for personal gain… yup, that pretty much sums up the GOP.
Team Romney, what’samatta you?
And now…August 22, 2012: Via the New York Daily News, it’s Paul Ryan’s turn. Dee Snider of Twisted Sister:
“I emphatically denounce Paul Ryan’s use of my song ‘Were Not Gonna Take It’ as recorded by my band Twisted Sister… There is almost nothing on which I agree with Paul Ryan, except perhaps the use of the P90X.”
Again, what is so hard about getting permission? Especially since Republicans are so unbearably and smugly self-righteous and brag about being the upstandingest of them all.
