Sarah Palin: Song Stealer

She was using the Heart song "Barracuda" and the Van Halen song "Right Now" during her campaign, and both bands have issued statements like this one from Ann & Nancy Wilson, saying that "the Republican campaign did not ask for permission to use the song, nor would they have been granted permission". Palin's son's middle name is Van in tribute to Van Halen, but that didn't sway them. (Source: The Week 9/19/08) Frankly, I have had quite enough trivia already about this woman and I apologize heartily for posting this nonsense.
