This article about John McCain once again using songs without permission cracks me up.
First, there's the idea that using the song "My hero" doesn't make you look like an arrogant, self-involved tool.
Then there's the fact that you'd have to be an idiot to think that the Foo Fighters wouldn't crack it when they found out.
Then, and this is the bit I must stress the most - I can't think of one person, even the ones who care the least about politics - who would be swayed by the use of a song. Especially one like "My Hero".
This, ladies and gentlemen, is what happens when your media muppets start believing their own spin.
You aren't my hero, McCain, and playing a song you didn't have permission to use in an ad isn't going to change that.
