yes, I agree this is the main point for me. Who would be better to run the country if either candidate won (and then something happened to them)? Biden, I think is more qualified to handle the job than Palin is. Frankly, I would be scared shitless if it was her..

Suppose McCain had picked someone very experienced and qualified (Lieberman, Ridge, Romney, whoever), and Obama had picked a Palin-type person, such as Sebelius, who has been governor of Kansas for 5 and half years and... that's about it. How would you feel then? Policy positions aside, who would be, as you said, more qualified to lead this country, and who, in your own words, would be the "scary" choice?

Can the Republicans ever actually pick songs by musicians that don't loathe them?

One more for the road...the Wilson sisters and Sony BMG have sent a cease and desist letter:

Quote:
"We have asked the Republican campaign publicly not to use our music. We
hope our wishes will be honored," the group said in a statement that said they "condemn" the use of the song at the Republican convention.

"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. (The 'barracuda' represented the business.) While Heart did not and would not authorize the use of their song at the RNC, there's irony in Republican strategists' choice to make use of it there."

With that elephant in the room, Heart's Nancy Wilson felt compelled to personally respond. "I think it's completely unfair to be so misrepresented," she said in a phone call to EW.com after the speech. "I feel completely f---ed over.

So, when we do some kind of tour meet-up, you won't be opposed to me singing "Alone" to you at karoake?

Nancy Wilson should be happy. This is the 1st time in 20 years that Heart has done anything worthy of getting their name in the paper. I'm sure Katrina and the Waves, Suzanne Vega and The Bangles are all green with envy!

And what are you basing this on? Do you know her personally? Have you been following her career? Are you basing on the fact that she won't talk to the press? What are you basing this on?

how, exactly, is Sebelius like Palin, other than the fact that both are female governors?

Governors of states that some people view as not very significant or populous, nobody's ever heard of them, viewed as inexperienced...

She and Ted Nugent were probably among the few rock musicians to allow their songs to be used.

Not all governors are unknown or viewed as inexperienced...

What a great convention for the GOP! Giuliani and Palin were fabulous!!

...with the added bonus of a bunch of hippies getting beat down outside the arena.
