I Heart Heart

September 9th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Last night, while swilling Macallan 12 with my favorite gal Jen and strapping on my Guitar Hero axe, I pointed at the song, “Barracuda,” in the track list.

“Jesus Christo lady,” I said to Jen with a shake of my head, “Did you hear that shit blasting after Palin’s speech at the RNC? We’ve gotta get five stars and reclaim it for the party of the people.”

“Party?” she responded, inspired by her favorite word.

“Dude, totally.” I nodded. “Y’know, it’s such an unfair projection of shame onto Heart. They didn’t ask for it, right? They couldn’t possibly be happy about it. They should write a letter and tell the Republican party to stop.”

“They did!” said Jen.

And, in fact, she’s right. Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart wasted no time in sending a cease and desist notice to the McCain-Palin campaign, telling Entertainment Weekly, “Sarah Palin’s views and values in no way represent us as American women…We ask that our song ‘Barracuda’ no longer be used to promote her image.”

Ballsy, right? Mos def.

More ballsy, however, is the McCain-Palin campaign’s response of…not giving one shit. According to CNN, they blasted the jam before an outdoor rally this morning in Ohio. It sent out a powerful message:

“WE DO NOT HEAR YOU. WE DO NOT CARE IF YOU LIKE US. WE DO NOT CARE IF YOU LIKE WHAT WE DO. WE WILL GO WHERE WE ARE UNWANTED, WE WILL CLAIM THINGS AS OURS THAT REFUSE TO BE CLAIMED. WE RULE. AND IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT, WE WILL PROBABLY SHAKE A GUN (OR FETUS) AT YOU.”

Hmm. Maybe they do have what it takes to run this country, after all!
