We of course remember Saint Ronnie abusing "Born In The USA" from the Boss, back in 1984. More recently, GWB tried to make use of Tom Petty's "Won't Back Down", and even more recently yet was Sarah Palin trying to make use of Heart's "Barracuda".
So who is stealing music today? None other than our resident lunatic GOP candidate Michele Bachmann. Even better, she went for a song by known liberal (or communist, in her world) Tom Petty - you would think they would have learned this the first time. Bachmann went for "American Girl", and now is being hit with a cease and desist order from the singer-songwriter.
Yep, that's what individual freedom is all about for Bachmann. You have the freedom to be creative and make your own product, and she has the freedom to abuse it and give you no compensation for it.
