24. Evoking "The Simpsons": "HA-HA!"

I was just talking to my husband about this - we were trying to remember the last time a Democrat pilfered someone's song without their permission and was forced to cease and desist. We couldn't. However, we could each think back to fucking reagan to multiple republi-CONS who've helped themselves to bands' or songwriters' work without asking.

I tell ya - it's The World's Biggest Entitlement Program at work and on display! "You want it? Shit! Just take it! You can always give it back later. But it rightfully should be YOURS for the taking anyway, shouldn't it? 'Cause it's okay if you're a republi-CON. The rules don't apply to you. Oh well, better to ask for forgiveness than ask for permission."

Just off the bat, Springsteen smacked the reagan campaign upside the head for stealing "Born in the USA" without his permission.

John Cougar Mellencamp's "Pink Houses" was ripped off by the mcsame campaign AND by reagan, Tom Petty's "American Girl" was ripped off by the michele bachmann campaign, Heart was ripped off by mcsame/palin for using "Barracuda" as her theme song at the 2008 convention. AND MORE...

Greed, selfishness, theft, and an overinflated sense of entitlement. That sums up the prevailing attitude of the GOP.
