RNC Etc.: The Real Thing Don't Do the Trick

* The most awesome campaign theme song ever** has hit a snag: turns out Heart don’t want Sarah Palin playing Barracuda at her events. (Meanwhile, I missed this piece earlier, but EW also has an interesting story on the mixed reactions among Brooks & Dunn and their songwriter to the use of Only in America by both Bush and Obama.)

* One point I forgot to make in my McCain writeup this morning:

If you find faults with our country, make it a better one. If you’re disappointed with the mistakes of government, join its ranks and work to correct them. Enlist in our Armed Forces. Become a teacher. Enter the ministry. Run for public office. Feed a hungry child. Teach an illiterate adult to read. Comfort the afflicted. Defend the rights of the oppressed…

Like a community organizer does, for instance? Get on message, hippie!

* And that’s about all I got. I missed much of the run-up to McCain’s acceptance while writing up Obama-on-O’Reilly, so I’ll make this an open thread for any of your thoughts. And then I promise to post something not about the freaking election.

**[Update: Not sarcasm! I don't care who you're voting for, Barracuda kicks ass.]
