Here we go again! Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider: "I emphatically denounce Paul Ryan's use of my song."

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:

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?

February 2012: Rapper K’Naan seeking legal action against him for using his song

July 16, 2012: Oops! Team Romney campaign ad “no longer available due to copyright claim”

August 16, 2012: Team Romney busted again! L.A. band: “We don’t like people going behind our backs using our music without asking, and we don’t like the Romney campaign.”

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.

    Even a child knows that before you borrow something that's not yours you should ask. Maybe we should start treating them like children. Nyah!
