what a surprise

Songwriter John Hall, who as a member of the band "Orleans" penned the hit song "Still the One" in 1976, yesterday asked the Bush campaign to refrain from using his COPYRIGHTED tune as part of their campaign source music. The campaign was said to have agreed to no longer use the song in accord with the wishes of Mr. Hall, who has previously been a Democratic legislator in his home state of New York. Today, at a Bush rally, little w. and his Prozac-glazed wife Laura, walked on stage to the familiar strains of "Still the One." These people have no shame. They appropriate somebody else's intellectual property for partisan use without asking permission, they agree to not use it any more after being politely contacted, and they turn around and use it anyway.

Sue them, John. Regardless of the outcome of the election, sue them.
