After politely asking the McCain campaign to stop using their song Barracuda, Ann and Nancy Wilson issued a statement when the GOP closed their convention with it anyway last night... Exclusive:

"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. The song 'Barracuda' was written in the late 70s as a scathing rant against the soulless, corporate nature of the music business, particularly for women.

Ironically, the song's lyrics include the lines:

If the real thing don't do the trick
You better make up something quick
You gonna burn burn burn burn it to the wick
Ooooooh, barracuda

So how come the Republicans

So how come the Republicans don't have RIAA lawyers swarming all over them? Not as easy as college kids I guess.

Oh wait! RIAA lawyers probably are Republicans.

Wilson sisters, meet Eddie Van Halen and Jackson Browne (via Lois Lane).

Age appropriate?

That song is way, way after McSame's time and way before Palin's time. Do all those GOP operatives making $5 mil+ go for the oldies station music? Maybe that's what they play at the hooker and coke bars?
