Palin Leaves Campaign Trail. Flees North...

Republican Theft of Intellectual Property

From http://www.tmz.com/2008/09/04/republicans-lack-heart/:

Republicans Lack Heart!: Ann and Nancy Wilson are pissed at the Republican Party and have fired off a cease and desist letter to the McCain/Palin campaign. Specifically, the Heart women are upset that the GOP has used their classic "Barracuda" as a theme song for Sarah Palin.
